Arsenal are back in action in the Premier League when they face Brentford on Sunday, September 18. The Gunners are aiming to get back to winning ways after suffering their first league defeat this season to Manchester United.
Arsenal Predicted Starting Lineup
How Arsenal have Lined-Up Recently
Mikel Arteta has stuck with a similar lineup for Premier League games so far, as he seems to have finally found his ideal mix of players. The Gunners have been lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and have found a lot of success doing so, having won 5 out of their first 6 league games this season.
Arteta has used the likes of Gabriel Jesus, William Saliba and Bukayo Saka in all league games this season – while another new signing Oleksandr Zinchenko also featuring heavily. Ben White has been playing in a right-back role as Saliba accompanies Gabriel Magalhaes in the centre of defence. Granit Xhaka has been operating in a more advanced midfield role, allowing him to create more chances and get involved in the attacking areas. The North London club have started the season well, and the Arsenal Starting Lineup vs Brentford is expected to be similar to what we have seen so far this season.
This core of players used so far this season are all expected to keep featuring in the long run as Arteta has seemingly found his winning combination that has helped his side look impressive so far this campaign. Despite their good start to the season, the manager has injuries to consider when selecting Arsenal’s Starting Lineup vs Brentford.
Arsenal Injuries to Consider
The Gunners are likely to be without key summer signing Oleksandr Zinchenko, who has been confirmed to have suffered a calf injury and will not be able to make it for this game. Thomas Partey could be back in action after recovering from a thigh injury suffered a few weeks ago. Emile Smith Rowe picked up a knock at Old Trafford in pre-match training for the game and is out for the foreseeable future. Mohamed Elneny, Cedric Soares and Reiss Nelson are all long-term absentees due to injury.
