Arsenal beaten 3-2 by Brentford in Emirates friendly 0

Posted on June 11, 2020 by Harry Kettle

While it may be great to get excited about battering Charlton Athletic in a one-sided friendly game prior to the season getting back underway, it needs to be taken with a big grain of salt. As such, when Arsenal lose 3-2 to Brentford in a friendly game, we also need to ensure fans don’t panic all too much – because it’s not the end of the world.

The real focus is going to be on the Manchester City game, which is exactly how it should be. Nobody knows for sure how the Gunners are going to perform against the reigning Champions of England next Wednesday, but that ‘sense of the unknown’ is going to be enough to give fans hope that Arsenal can pull off a big result.

Danny Welbeck in limbo at Arsenal 0

On Wednesday night, England international striker Danny Welbeck netted a brace in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round.

It was the usual story for the striker as he started a cup game. His Arsenal appearances are usually restricted to starts in the cup competitions and cameos in the Premier League.

Happy to wait for a Premier League start

In truth, Welbeck is unlikely to start many of Arsenal’s Premier League games. However, the striker has stated that he is happy to wait for his chance to start in the top-flight.

Arsenal edge past Brentford 0

Six in a row.

While there are about a million different things that you could choose to pick up on from Arsenal’s game against Brentford last night, the most important statistic of them all is this: Arsenal Football Club have won six games in a row. Now while the circumstances behind those wins are a little bit questionable, the truth of the matter is that a win is a win – and that’s all that matters both domestically and in European football. Unai Emery knows how to win football matches, and he showcased that for everyone to see once again last night as Arsenal overcame a tough challenge in the form of Brentford.

Arsenal need to keep their momentum going against Brentford 0

As we all know Arsenal host Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round this evening. The competition is definitely not the Gunners priority this season, as is now the custom of the much-maligned cup competition.

The League Cup will be low on most Premier League clubs priority list in truth. No doubt Gunners boss Unai Emery will heavily rotate his squad with a number of fringe players likely to feature against the Bees.

Leno to start? 0

While it may not be an absolute guarantee, it may be a good bet to suggest that Bernd Leno will appear against Brentford tonight. Not only would it serve as something of an extra incentive for fans to go to the game in order to see him in person, but it also just makes sense. Petr Cech seems to have the number one spot on lockdown for the next few weeks at the very least, with his performance against Everton at the weekend being a big reason for that.

99% of the time, all we care about when going to a game of football is actually enjoying the game. Alas, sometimes we’re forced to deal with outside circumstances, and that’s what we’re here to talk about in case you’re going to the Brentford clash tonight. Arsenal have released some travel information that could throw out some stumbling blocks for those of you who have decided to make the trip over to the Emirates – especially if you aren’t frequent visitors to the ground.

Arsenal v Brentford League Cup Third Round Preview 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Brentford at the Emirates Stadium in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners head into this cup tie in good spirits and on a five-game winning run after their 2-0 home win over Everton on Sunday. The team from north London have a mixed recent record in this competition, mainly due to the mass squad rotation on the part of former boss Arsene Wenger in cup competition.

Looking ahead to Brentford 0

Arsenal will be returning to the Emirates for the third straight game tomorrow night, as they take on Championship side Brentford in the League (or Carabao if you want to be awkward about it) Cup. The attendances likely aren’t going to be great, as was the case in the Europa League, and that’s one of the primary things that the Gunners need to look out for. This serves as a big day out for the second tier side and they’ll probably bring some impressive numbers, and as a result, there’s a good chance that they’re going to outsing the home side.

Arsenal fall to Brentford 0

Posted on July 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal’s pre-season suffered a bit of a knock as they fell to Brentford in a 2-1 friendly defeat, in a game which many people didn’t even know was happening. The Gunners were coming off the back of an 8-0 demolition of Boreham Wood, and while we can’t take all too much from pre-season, it’s certainly interesting to see that they were turned over by a Championship side who aren’t even considered to be realistic promotion contenders this season.
