After 10 days without a game and two fixture postponements, Arsenal are back in action when they face Brentford tomorrow afternoon (Sunday).
Despite suffering a 3-1 loss at the hands of Manchester United in their last Premier League outing almost a fortnight ago, there is still a positive mood surrounding the Gunners at the moment and that is completely justified with six wins from seven games across all competitions at the start of the new season.
And the incentive for Arsenal ahead of facing Brentford is that another victory will ensure they go into the first international break of the season leading the way at the top of the table – regardless of how Manchester City and Tottenham get on over the weekend.
But as the north London outfit are well aware, winning at the Brentford Community Stadium is easier said than done and their task could be made all the more difficult with Oleksandr Zinchenko set to miss out through injury, according to the Ukraine national team.
However, the good news is that Mikel Arteta could welcome back Thomas Partey to the fold after four games on the sidelines and this could leave the Gunners manager facing somewhat of a selection headache when it comes to naming his line-up.
With that said, football.london’s Arsenal writers Kaya Kaynak, Tom Canton Tashan Deniran-Alleyne, Bailey Keogh and Chris Davison are on hand to step into the firing line and offer their assistance to Arteta by providing their say on who should start for the visitors in west London.
Arsenal XI vs Brentford: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard; Martinelli, Saka, Jesus.
