Arteta reacts to emphatic Brentford friendly win 0

Posted on September 03, 2021 by Harry Kettle

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. The international break is currently ongoing but for manager Mikel Arteta the hard work continues as Arsenal attempt to prepare for a huge game against Norwich next weekend.

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.

The countdown is almost over as we prepare for the start of the new Premier League season tonight in London. Top flight newcomers Brentford are set to host Arsenal in a game that, based on everything we know about both clubs, has the potential to throw up a few surprises.

Before kick-off, manager Mikel Arteta previewed the game and also spoke about what he expects to see from his side in what will be easily his most challenging moment as the man in charge at the club.

It’s time for Arsenal fans to roll up their sleeves and get back to watching the Gunners in the Premier League once again. The last few seasons have been notably disappointing for this side but in the midst of all that, many supporters are hoping that the club’s lack of a presence in Europe could give them a real focus and drive in domestic competitions – including the Premier League.

Tomorrow night, Mikel Arteta’s side will have the honour of kicking off the new season when they travel across London to take on Brentford.

Thomas Partey suffered a huge injury blow in the pre-season friendly against Chelsea on Sunday, leaving the pitch after only 30 minutes of the match which was a part of the ‘Mind Series’ tournament. And as reported by Charles Watts for, the midfielder will be out of action for several weeks, which effectively rules him out of the Premier League opener against newly promoted Brentford next week.

Whilst we may still be in the midst of Euro 2020 and Copa America, it certainly feels as if there’s momentum building for the start of the new Premier League campaign. We’re just over a month away now and all 20 teams will be gearing up for what could prove to be the most competitive edition of the EPL yet.

Prior to all that, though, we thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the first six Permier League games of the season that Arsenal Football Club will have to face.

Arsenal start season against Brentford 0

Arsenal fans weren’t happy with finishing down in eighth place again and we can’t say that we blame them. The Premier League is where a team like the Gunners should be able to thrive but in the last few years, they’ve done anything but. Their main aim, now that they don’t have the Europa League to deal with, will be to make a sustained push for the top four.

Champions League football is the goal and if they’re going to go after it, they need to get off to a good start – and that start will be against play-off winners Brentford.

Arsenal beaten 3-2 by Brentford in Emirates friendly 0

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.
