Brentford Vs Arsenal: Confirmed Lineups Are Out

Newly promoted Brentford host Arsenal tonight (Friday) to kick-off the new Premier League campaign.

Manager Thomas Frank will be optimistic ahead of their opening night clash with Arsenal after facing a few Premier League sides during pre-season.

It should be noted that Brentford ended the previous Championship season on a nine-game unbeaten home run.

When the whistle blows for kick-off, the Bees will become the 50th different team to play in the Premier League, although none of the nine London sides before them ever managed to win an opening day fixture.

Their opponents, Arsenal, kick-start their campaign after finishing the last two seasons in 8th place.

The Gunners hope to break back into Champions League places at the end of the season.

Arsenal endured a mixed bag pre-season, starting with a loss to Hibernian. They returned from Scotland winless after mustering a draw to Rangers.

Brentford Vs Arsenal Lineup

Brentford XI (3-5-2): David Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock, Henry, Janelt, Onyeka, Mbeumo, Nørgaard, Canós, Toney

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Chambers, White, Marí, Tierney, Sambi Lokonga, Xhaka, Pépé, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Balogun
