Brentford is in decline in recent times. Therefore, Arsenal’s trip to the Emirates sanctuary within the framework of round 26 of the English Premier League this weekend is forecasted to be more or less good for the army of coach Thomas Frank, especially when the performance of the Gunners The London goalkeeper is showing signs of improvement.
After 22 matches played in the Premier League this season, Arsenal is currently 6th in the table with 39 points. However, their gap with 4th place of Manchester United is only 4 points but they have played 3 games less. Therefore, the goal of the home team today is a victory and this is not a goal that is too far from the reach of coach Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students when the opponent is just a rookie team like Brentford.
In fact, the performance of the Emirates Stadium team has improved markedly in recent times. Specifically, Arsenal are unbeaten in 5 of the last 6 matches in the English Premier League. Their only defeat was a brave 1-2 defeat at home to defending champion Manchester City. In the previous round, coach Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students just defeated a rather annoying opponent, Wolves, right at Molineux with a score of 1-0.
Before landing at Emirates, Brentford was going through 7 consecutive winless matches in all competitions and 6 of them were failures. That decline has dragged the army of coach Thomas Frank to 14th place in the English Premier League table. In the match against Arsenal today, in addition to losing two pillars, Joel Campbell and main striker Ivan Toney due to injury, The Bees also do not have the service of veteran defender Mathias Jorgensen and midfielder Tarique Fosu because similar reason.
Another detail that betrayed Brentford is the extremely weak away record of this team. In the last 4 trips away from home, coach Thomas Frank’s army lost and only got 2 goals. Moreover, the defense of the home team at Brentford Community is having too many problems when they have conceded 13 goals in all 4 matches. Therefore, the fact that The Bees got bogged down in the rose garden is not too surprising.
