Match Preview of Arsenal vs Brentford

Seeking to avoid a third successive defeat across all competitions, Arsenal return to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon for a London derby against Brentford in the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta's side were stunned 1-0 by relegation-threatened Everton last time out, while the Bees cruised to a 3-0 triumph over Southampton to further their European ambitions.

The ingredients for an upset were there, and Arsenal were served a slice of humble pie at Goodison Park - a ground that has not treated them well in recent years - as a physically dominant Everton side deservedly handed the Gunners just their second league defeat of the season.

Under the tutelage of football pragmatist Sean Dyche, Everton put in the hard graft that would have delighted the ex-Burnley boss to no end, and they got their reward on the hour mark as James Tarkowski easily out-muscled Martin Odegaard to head home from a corner.

However, the whole of North London was cheering on Sunday when Tottenham Hotspur edged Manchester City 1-0, leaving the Gunners five points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand, and an eight-point lead will temporarily be theirs should they return to winning ways.

The threat of sanctions against Man City following their series of charges for alleged financial breaches is music to the ears of Arsenal fans, but any potential punishments - including points deductions - will not be administered for some time yet, so keeping the champions at bay for now is of paramount importance before the two sides clash at the Emirates on Wednesday.

Our Predicted Lineups

Arsenal possible starting lineup:Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus

Brentford possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Dasilva, Norgaard, Jensen; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa

Who will win the match?

We say: Arsenal 1-0 Brentford. Another frustrating afternoon could be on the cards for an Arsenal side who have lost their way a touch in recent weeks, especially with Brentford stringing together a spate of defensive masterclasses in their stellar unbeaten run. However, Arteta's men have turned up the heat in London derbies this season, and a return to home comforts is just what the doctor ordered for the league leaders, who should have enough in the tank to edge a close contest and go eight points clear at the summit, but Brentford will not make it easy for them.
