The Bees will be making their first top-flight appearance in over 70 years after earning a return to the top tier via a playoff. The last time they played Arsenal in a league match was in 1947 where Arsenal picked a 1-0 win. Their recent meeting was in a League Cup match was in 2018 where Arsenal picked a comfortable 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have been in poor form during pre-season and this will be a concern for Coach Mikel Arteta heading into the new campaign. Brentford on the other hand have been in sensational form and have defeated teams like Valencia, Watford and held Manchester United to a barren draw and this gives them confidence heading to their premier league bow.
Ahead of the season opener, the Bees will be without Mathias Jensen who is injured while for Arsenal, Thomas Partey is out of the game through an injury that he picked during the pre-season friendly game through injury.
