Arsenal Current Run of Form
For only the second time this season, the Gunners come into this game on the back of a Premier League defeat. Their shock defeat at Goodison Park to Everton adds an extra layer of pressure to this game for Mikel Arteta’s men, but they should remain confident given their overall form this season.
They have won three of their last five Premier League fixtures, including statement victories over both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. The Everton result put a spanner in the works, but the Gunners must remain calm as the title race begins to heat up.
Brentford Current Run of Form
However, that is easier said than done given that their opponents come into this game in remarkable form. The Bees have won an impressive four of their last five Premier League fixtures and currently sit in seventh place.

That run of form, which has already seen Thomas Frank’s side beat one English giant in the form of Liverpool, is the best in the league and the west London club will be aiming for an even bigger shock in this game as they attempt to secure three points against the league leaders.
Brentford have enjoyed previous success in this fixture, having secured an astonishing 2-0 victory over the Gunners in their first-ever Premier League match in the summer of 2021 as goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard sunk Arteta’s side.
However, it is Arsenal who will come into this game knowing they were victorious the last time these two clubs met, with the Gunners thrashing Brentford 3-0 away from home.
Arsenal vs Brentford Prediction
Despite Brentford’s incredible form and Arsenal’s recent shock defeat, it is impossible to look past a home win in this game. The Gunners are simply unstoppable when playing at their best, as the Bees will be all too aware, and if Arteta can get a response from his players, which is likely, then they will get the win in this one.
