Teams News Brentford vs Arsenal

Ivan Toney produced doubts over his fitness after he missed the 2-1 win over Valencia on Saturday.

But Bees boss Thomas Frank disclosed in his post-match interview that he expects his star striker to return to the side in the case of Arsenal.

Summer endorsed Kristoffer Ajer could be in line for his competitive debut alongside Pontus Jansson and Ethan Pinnock.

As could fellow new arrival Frank Onyeka – who may be picked to start after scoring the winner against Valencia as a second-half substitute.

Arsenal, meanwhile, has a number of injury worries for Friday night’s game with several stars still in the treatment room.

Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes will both be absent against Brentford – with the former sustaining an ankle problem during the defeat to Chelsea.

Eddie Nketiah is also suffering from a similar problem from that game and the Premier League opener is thought to come too soon.

The defender’s compatriot Gabriel Martinelli was part of that gold-medal-winning squad and won’t link up with Arsenal for weeks yet.

Joe Willock is another player that is unlikely to be in the squad to face Brentford as his £20million-plus move to Newcastle edged closer.

But more positively, there could be competitive debuts for new signings Ben White and Albert Lokonga – both of whom started against Spurs.

Brentford v Arsenal: Match stats 

  • This will be the first league meeting between Brentford and Arsenal since May 1947, a match the Gunners won 1-0 at Griffin Park.
  • Arsenal have won just one of their six visits to Brentford in all competitions (D1 L4), though this will be the first such meeting since May 1947.
  • Brentford will be the 50th different team to play in the Premier League, and the 10th from London. Just 11 of the previous 49 participants have won their first ever game in the competition (D15 L23), while no side from the capital has won their first ever Premier League game (D5 L4).
  • When kicking off their Premier League season away from home, Arsenal are unbeaten in seven games (W5 D2) since losing 0-1 at Sunderland in the 2000-01 campaign. The Gunners began last season with a 3-0 victory away against promoted side Fulham.
  • Brentford against Arsenal is only the third ever game in Premier League history to be played on Friday the 13th – the other two games were in April 2001, with Bradford City winning 2-0 against Charlton Athletic and Leeds United beating Liverpool 2-1.
  • In English top-flight history, Arsenal (47%) and Brentford (43%) have the two highest win rates in London derby matches. The Gunners have played 700 such games (329 wins) while Brentford have played just 28 (12 wins).
  • This is the fourth time Arsenal have been involved in the opening game of a Premier League campaign, winning the other three against West Brom (2008-09), Leicester (2017-18) and Fulham (2020-21). Meanwhile, this is the third season in a row in which the opening fixture has featured a promoted side, with those sides losing by three goals in the previous two (Norwich 1-4 Liverpool, Fulham 0-3 Arsenal).

  • Including the play-offs, Brentford striker Ivan Toney was directly involved in 43 Championship goals during the 2020-21 season (33 goals, 10 assists). Toney made two Premier League appearances in 2015-16 for Newcastle United, both five-minute substitute appearances against Chelsea and Manchester United. He could become the second player to make his first three Premier League appearances against each of Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd, after goalkeeper Bernard Lama in March 1998 for West Ham.
  • Arsenal’s Nicolas Pépé finished last season scoring five goals in three games, netting a brace in the Gunners’ final two games of the season. The only Arsenal player to score 2+ goals in three consecutive Premier League games is Robin van Persie, who did so in October 2011.
