Posted on September 19, 2022 by Harry Kettle

While there may not have been a whole lot of action on over the weekend in the Premier League, Arsenal made sure they’d be entering the international break in style as they moved back to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Brentford.

The Bees simply weren’t able to get going with the Gunners putting them to the sword, ensuring they did a good job of bouncing back from the disappointment of losing to Manchester United. After the full time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta took the time to reflect on what a big moment this was in their campaign.

Arsenal booked another three points today (Sunday) by beating Brentford 0-3 at the Community Stadium to return to the top of the Premier League table.

With 18 points, the Gunners continue to lead the race ahead of defending champions Manchester City and arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur by a single point, and the campaign is set to be far more interesting than any we’ve seen in the last decade. It was William Saliba who opened the scoring by heading in from a Bukayo Saka corner and Gabriel Jesus who added the second, heading a fine Granit Xhaka cross past David Raya in the Brentford goal, before Fabio Vieira opening his own account with a fantastic strike from outside the box in the second half.

Today, we’re going to take a look at what should be a pretty exciting encounter between Brentford and Arsenal.

Following on from the death of Queen Elizabeth II, many football games across England were postponed in order to help pay tribute to Her Majesty. The worry was that it would extend to this weekend but thankfully for football fans, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to be the case.

As per Arsenal.com, the Gunners’ clash with Brentford on Sunday will go ahead as planned. The worry was that there would be too many policing issues given that the Queen’s funeral will take place the day after, but that problems have seemingly been resolved with the fixture now taking place at 12pm.

Following on from the postponement of last weekend’s fixtures, many fans have been curious to see whether or not that trend would continue as the nation’s mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II continues.

The death of Her Majesty rocked many in the country but a lot of supporters have questioned why the decision was taken to postpone games when it could’ve been seen as a great outlet for many who were struggling.

This weekend, though, the majority of fixtures will probably be going ahead in the top flight, although the same may not be true for Super Sunday.

Arsenal fans have enjoyed watching the Gunners play so far throughout pre-season, largely because they just keep on winning games. Alas, that was never going to last forever based on what we know about this club, which is why it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to learn that they finally lost in a behind closed doors friendly this week.

The opposition was Brentford, offering up some slight PTSD from last season’s opener, with the Bees getting the first goal of the game through Bryan Mbeumo. Eddie Nketiah bagged his fifth goal of the summer to keep things interesting, only for Ryan Trevitt to score what proved to be the winner just before half-time.

Back at the start of the Premier League season we saw Arsenal fall short to newcomers Brentford in an embarrassing 2-0 defeat. Now, just a few weeks later, the Gunners have taken part in something of a rematch against the Bees – but behind closed doors.

After they saw off the challenge of Brentford 4-0 in a friendly earlier this week, Arteta spoke to the media about the result as well as several other topics.

Arsenal fans didn’t exactly come into the new campaign with particularly high expectations, but they still would’ve been hoping for better than what they actually got on Friday night. The Gunners were outfought by Premier League newcomers Brentford in what proved to be a pretty depressing evening for Arsenal supporters across the globe.

After the match, manager Mikel Arteta attempted to explain away what happened – although we’re not sure he could’ve said anything that would’ve injected confidence into a fanbase that wants to know what this club keeps repeating the same mistakes.
