Brentford top picks and players to watch vs Arsenal Premier League 2022-23 

Ivan Toney: The Brentford striker has been one of the most in-form forwards in the Premier League this season. Toney has registered five goals and two assists while taking 2.5 shots per game and making 1.7 key passes per game. His anchor play and movement in the box combined with his precision from the penalty spot will make him a major threat to the Arsenal defence.

Mathias Jensen: Brentford’s no. 8 has been an influential playmaker in the Premier League this season. Jensen scored and assisted in the Bees’ victory over Manchester United and also recorded an assist against Fulham. Jensen is also an expert at breaking up the opposition attacks, averaging 2.2 tackles per game.

Arsenal top picks and players to watch vs Brentford Premier League 2022-23

Gabriel Jesus: The Brazilian striker’s performances after joining Arsenal have been very impressive. Jesus has netted thrice in the Premier League and also assisted three goals in this competition this season. Jesus is extremely competitive on offensive duels and has the ability to come in midfield and influence the game. The 25-year-old scored in Arsenal’s last home game in this competition.

Gabriel Martinelli: Gunners’ 21-year-old winger has peaked early in this Premier League campaign. Martinelli has scored a goal each in two home games this season, while he also netted in Arsenal’s season opener against Crystal Palace. His pace and skill on the ball will make him a different proposition for the Brentford backline.

Brentford vs Arsenal Premier League 2022-23 prediction

Brentford got one over Arsenal in the Premier League last season. However, the Gunners have started this season with great form and their top players have been dominating on the pitch. Arsenal have the odds in their favour and are expected to win this encounter.

On the other hand, Brentford will find it difficult to outscore Arsenal in this game. The hosts have a significantly lower winning probability here and are unlikely to cause an upset.
