Arsenal, the favorites for this weekend’s clash with Brentford as we look at the predicted starting 11 and key match details for the Brentford FC vs Arsenal FC EPL 2022-23 match-up.
Arsenal have had a dream start to their season with 5 wins in their first 6 games in the league. The only loss coming to Manchester United in an away game that they would want to learn from and forget. They have been playing a beautiful free-flowing game with the midfield dominating possession over almost all their opponents. Mikel Arteta would be looking to return to their winning form and shall continue to play the way they have been in the previous games.
Meanwhile, Brentford are playing at home, and will be looking to continue their winning streak, and getting those important 3 points. After the brilliant performance against Leeds led by Ivan Toney, both the striker himself and the team will be brimming with confidence. However, they conceded 2 goals to Leeds due to defensive lapses and the manager would want their team to avoid these mistakes against Arsenal.
So, as we wait for the match to begin, let’s look at the best predicted starting 11 for Brentford vs Arsenal important clash of EPL 2022.

This is another game where picking players will be a challenge. However, with Arsenal being the favorites choosing Aaron Ramsdale would be step 1. With a 3-man-defense seems to be able to have more players upfront the pick would be Oleksandr Zinchenko, Aaron Hickey, and William Saliba.
In the midfield, Bryan Mbeumo, and Gabriel Martinelli are no-brainers along with Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Mathias Jensen. Gabriel Jesus and Ivan Toney are must-haves for any game in the front as they are always a threat in front of goal.
