Brentford – Arsenal: Premier League – live | Premier League

Are you watching Steve Bould? Saka’s delivery is excellent, Saliba wins the flick-on at the near post, ahead of Toney who’s not playing proper attention, and the ball flies in, Raya’s desperate claw unable to drag it away from the line. A quick check, and ref signals the goal.

Recency bias is a tedious thing, but please bear with me when I say that: in the 40 years I’ve been watching football and “this league” in particular, the standard of entertainment has never been as high as it is this season. I’m not sure there’s any time in the past that I could look at fixture such as ours this afternoon and be absolutely certain that we’re going to see a quality game of soccer, but looking at our fixture this afternoon, I’m absolutely certain that we’re going to see a quality game of soccer.

Brentford are a terrific team, bristling, canny and intense, and also won this fixture at the start of last term – in what, to Gary Neville at least, seemed like a watershed moment for both sides. In the event, he was right about them but wrong about Arsenal, who were missing all manner of player that night, but their physicality and directness will still ask interesting questions of Mikel Arteta’s men. In particular, I’m looking forward to seeing how Gabriel and William Saliba handle Ivan Toney, but all over the pitch, they’ve the players to make this a proper contest.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are growing, having somehow turned the disappointment of the run-in into pre-season momentum. I say somehow because it wasn’t a given or anything like it, but central to the change was signing of Gabriel Jesus, a rare occasion on which it was just obvious that a club had acquired a player absolutely perfect for their needs in every single aspect. But it is not just him – Martin Odegaard has stepped up a level, Granit Xhaka is revelling in his new, advanced role, and Gabriel Martinelli is improving.

That, though brings pressure. This summer, Arsenal could console themselves that, though last season ended in disappointment, significant steps had been taken; next summer, there’ll need to be solid proof, not just a nice little feeling. Brentford, meanwhile, could content themselves with survival, but now need to take things on and establish themselves as a Premier-League staple, because they’ve got everything they need for that – and more. This is going to be good.

Goal! Brentford 0-1 Arsenal (Saliba 17)

Do you watch Steve Bould? Saka’s delivery is excellent, Saliba wins by hitting the near post, ahead of Tony who isn’t playing proper attention, the ball flies inward, and a desperate Rhea claw is unable to pull it off the line. Quick check, reference points to target.

16 minutes Arsenal win a corner…

15 minutes Bites Yer Neck carries the ball forward and finds Dasilva, but a cross pass with his head is clear and when Arsenal Counter, Tony returns the fee and puts it in hand. This is a wonderful job.

13 minutes Big cheers as the ball heads right to Vieira and Mei beats the ball and the man in the classic vignette for the action of “This League” – much to the consternation of the former. I’m suffocating here.

12 minutes …Which Brentford Clear enough easily.

11 minutes Jesus’ retraction to the left has been a feature of Arsenal’s play so far this season, and the triangle he formed with Zinchenko and Martinelli is reminiscent, in a simple way, of the triangle made by Cole, Perez and Henry. But when that happens, they sometimes lack a presence in the middle, so Vieira will need to make up. Meanwhile, though, Mai misjudged Jesus on the right, so the score comes from the free kick…

9 minutes More Arsenal possession, Jesus pulls left to make a corner down the line. But Tierney’s pass can’t find him, Brentford’s all-out defense makes it hard for them to find space.

7 minutes Arsenal knock on him but Brentford get everyone back – Sarcasticallyreminds me of Arsenal’s tactic under Arsene Wenger, when they were defending corners with all eleven players so that when they responded, no one was marked and the opposing defenses had to deal with moving goals.

6 minutes Jesus ran to the left and collected a simple ball over the top. But he can’t cross to himself, so when the ball comes, Brentford get it away. Indeed, there is a really good rhythm to this game.

5 minutes and again! Henry leaves Wyatt behind and this time, Mboymo meets his squiggly cross, but can’t get much of it and once again Ramsdale collects.

5 minutes Here we go, Henry attacks the space behind White and gets rid of him, but his cross, looking for Mboimo, rises too high.

4 minutes …that diffused Janson left to Henry. His cross is also good, but no one gambles and attacks the front post, so Ramsdale gathers easily.

3 minutes Brentford wins a free kick at 30 yards, left center…

2 minutes awesome from Arsenal, Saliba leads a low pass to Martinelli, whose first touch was superb, peeking at a pass to Xhaka, down the left side of the penalty area. It looks a lot like 0-1, but instead of shooting, he lowers his comeback, and while he’s about to shoot, Martinelli slips, allowing Raya to block easily. However, this is a warning for the local side.

1 minute Arsenal return to Ramsdale, who steps forward and puts them in attack. His passing range is excellent, but I still have doubts about his actual bodyguards – although at 24, he has plenty of time to improve.

1 minute pee! We go away!

A minute of silence for the Queen It was followed by the national anthem.

Here comes the difference, Led by managers holding wreaths.

and how great it is To see the fans away officially standing.

if Brentford Win this, they go ninth. If Arsenal win this, they are on top.

E-mail! ““One of the general suspicion, anxiety and angry preoccupation of Arsenal fans is the condition of Thomas Partey’s legs,” says Charles Antaki. “Is it fully functional, and if so, for how long? What happens when he can’t play, and you don’t have someone who can control the ball, receive and turn, drive and threaten? Lokonga looks like a good chance for the mediocre future, but it’s all about the present, Is not it?Specifically not performed Brentford Midline. “

Yes I agree. When Arsenal They were sad last season, the effect of his absence, in my opinion, was not fully felt. I can’t wait to see him shine on a straight shot from 18-25 yards.

Arsenal prepares to wear Jamaican flag crests. It truly is an exceptional leisure apparel brand – 10 Minutes At Carnival told me that everyone who came up with this brand knew exactly what they were doing.

Arteta, wearing a V-neck school sweater and tie underneath, in a Rangers style, He tells us that Zinchenko and Odegaard are injured and that Nwanyeri is playing because “we are as short as possible”. Sometimes hilarious gags write themselves.

In the meantime, Frank asserts that he wants his team to be brave and aggressive, and that they want to turn the Community Playground into a “fortress.” he knows Arsenal Good, and he laughs that even before he was called up to England, Evan Toni wasn’t lacking in confidence.

Back to Ethan Nwaneri, I didn’t realize he was 15 years old! Aww, Madonie! What happened to StrongBoo 2-liter bottles in parks and on buses?

In the meantime, Arsenal will be looking, I imagine, to beat Brentford’s central defence, With their backs high and wide to maintain width. I’m sure they will miss Odegaard, whose ability to pick small passes is very important to them, but Jesus’ ability to occupy a full defense would give Vieira a decent goal.

The more I think about it, the more this game is determined by how much – or not – how Gabriel and Saliba dealt with Tony and Mpoemo. The 5-3-2 makes a lot of sense in this context, because while Arsenal are improving, I’m still not sold on their four back, and I dare say Brentford He’ll also want to take a look at Ben White, off the right-back.

Eh, Google has Pontus Jansen playing to the right of the midfield at 4-3-3. I’ll take an L if it turns out to be the case, but I can’t quite see it.

Is Aaron Hickey’s nickname “neck bite”? Sorry.

This is the London Derby, so here’s the London tale: I was at a hostel in Soho last night and was approached by two Welsh women, wondering if I was a local. They had expected these establishments to be inhabited only by tourists, so they were excited to meet someone from the area; The rights to the movie have already been selected.

If Nwaneri makes his debut before September 14th 2023 then he will break Fabregas’ record as Arsenal’s youngest ever player.

As for the ArsenalAnd the There is good news and bad news. We knew Oleksandr Zinchenko would lose – Kieran Tierney is a decent substitute – but Martin Odegaard is also absent, which is a huge loss. However, Thomas Partey is starting his latest comeback, replacing Sambi Lokonga, and I’m really looking forward to getting a look at Fabio Vieira, who looked good when he came to Old Trafford and seems to have a lot of potential.

There is a bit of work here. Brentford, impressive in occupying Leeds last time out, moved from 4-3-3 to 5-3-2, bringing Christopher Agger and Josh DaSilva to Shandon Baptiste and Ken Lewis Potter, the first Premier League player to hold three titles. Their ability to switch formations in this way – they also played 5-3-2 against Manchester United – is a tribute to both Thomas Frank’s coaching and the intelligence of their players, and the competition between attacking line and Arsenal’s central defense could be good. Hold the key to this game.

Preamble

Newness bias is boring, but please bear with me when I say it: in the 40 years I’ve been watching football and ‘this league’ in particular, the level of entertainment has never been as high as it has been this season. I’m not sure there was ever a time in the past when I could watch a match like ours this afternoon and be pretty sure we’d see a quality soccer match, but looking at the match we played this afternoon I’m pretty sure we’ll see a quality soccer game .

Brentford is a brilliant, energetic, nimble and intense team that also won this match early last season – in what seemed, to Gary Neville at least, as a watershed moment for both sides. In this case, he was right about them but wrong about Arsenal, who lost all sorts of players that night, but their physicality and directness will still pose interesting questions to Mikel Arteta’s men. In particular, I look forward to seeing how Gabriel and William Saliba deal with Evan Toni, but across the field, they have players to make this competition fit.

Arsenal, meanwhile, is growing, having turned their second-round disappointment into pre-season momentum. I say somehow because it wasn’t a given or anything like that, but the key to the change was the signing of Gabriel Jesus, a rare occasion on which it was clear that the club had sourced a player absolutely perfect for his needs in every game. side. But it’s not just him – Martin Odegaard has risen to the occasion, Granit Xhaka rejoices in his new and advanced turn, and Gabriel Martinelli is developing.

This, though, brings stress. This summer, Arsenal were able to console themselves that although last season ended in disappointment, important steps have been taken; Next summer, there should be solid evidence, not just a simple, pleasant feeling. In the meantime, Brentford can be content to survive, but now they need to take matters into their own hands and establish themselves as a fixture in the Premier League, because they have everything they need for that – and more. This will be good
