Brentford v Arsenal Prediction and Betting Tips | how to watch on TV and live stream 18th Sept. 2022
Following the postponement of a number of athletic games last weekend in honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, the Premier League resumes this weekend with a reduced schedule of matches, including several in London.
Despite the cancellation of Chelsea’s home game, Brentford will face an Arsenal squad this weekend, who are still a point ahead of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the Premier League.
Brentford attempt to build on their recent Premier League victory over Leeds United, with English striker Ivan Toney’s performance prompting analysts to demand for his inclusion in the England Men’s National Football squad.
Looking at Arsenal and Brentford performance in their last games
Despite a setback to Manchester United in their previous game, Arsenal stay top of the Premier League this week, albeit they may be knocked off the top place for at least 24 hours.
With top three opponents Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur playing the day before and trailing the Gunners by one point, a win for Mike Arteta’s side will see them reclaim first place in the Premier League table at the conclusion of the weekend.
Brentford had a fantastic weekend in the Premier League, defeating Leeds United 5-2 at home to move into 9th place in the rankings and extend their undefeated streak to three games.
Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch was sent off in the game after arguing about two penalty appeals for the visitors, in a weekend marred by referee and VAR decisions that prompted the Premier League to initiate a review of its standards.
Ivan Toney scored a hat-trick in the game, prompting Match of the Day analysts Gary Linekar, Alan Shearer, and Danny Murphy to wonder if such success may lead to an England call-up for the striker.
