Arsenal to continue

There are two games to be played in the English Premier League on the 18th of September, including the meeting between Brentford and Arsenal.

The match will be played at the Brentford Community Stadium and the hosts begin the weekend in 8th place on nine points while the visitors are top of the table on 15 points.

Brentford come into the match having recorded a good 5-2 win over Leeds United at home in their most recent Premier League game.

With the score 2-1 in favour of Brentford at half time, the Bees added a third goal in the second half only to concede another with 11 minutes left on the clock.

With Leeds United pushing forward, Brentford took full advantage to score two more goals and take maximum points.

That result means Brentford are undefeated in their last four fixtures in all competitions. In addition to the win over Leeds United, there have been draws with Everton at home and Crystal Palace away in the Premier League in addition to a win at Colchester United in the League Cup.

Trends show in their last eight home games in all competitions, Brentford have recorded seven undefeated encounters. They have scored at least one goal in their last 10 matches but have conceded goals in three of their last four home Premier League fixtures.

Arsenal make the short trip to the Brentford Community Stadium having last played on the 8th of September in the Europa League. The Gunners beat FC Zurich 2-1 away from home to start the competition with a win but their match with PSV Eindhoven was postponed this week.

In terms of the Premier League, the Gunners will be determined to bounce back from the 3-1 loss at Old Trafford last time out. Arsenal were hoping to show they were genuine title contenders and played well for parts of the game but could not prevent Manchester United from scoring the goals to win the match.

However, Arsenal have won five of their six Premier League matches this season, with the wins coming over Crystal Palace and Bournemouth away plus Leicester City, Fulham, and Aston Villa at home.
