Arsenal vs Brentford Predictions and Match Preview - Live

Arsenal vs Brentford | English League Cup | Date: Wednesday, 26 September 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Emirates Stadium (London)

The Arsenal route in Unai Emery on the bench of Arsenal started quite slowly. The Gunners have lost two games against Manchester City and Chelsea, announcing another tough campaign at the top of English football.

Despite this, the men of Emery have won five matches through the competitions and have launched their campaign. They climbed to sixth place in the Premier League standings with four wins in the last four games.

The last of the successes came on Sunday afternoon when Arsenal defeated Everton 2-0 at Emirates Stadium thanks to goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

They will be big favorites to maintain that form on Wednesday night when they start the League Cup campaign with the third match against the Brentford club.

Arsenal vs. Brentford: Head to head

  • This will be the first direct confrontation between the two teams since the 1946/47 season when the bees were the last to present the elite of English football.
  • Interestingly, Brentford has a positive record against Arsenal.
  • The bees won 5, tied 3 and lost 2 of their 10 games with the Gunners.

Arsenal vs Brentford: Prediction

Brentford started his campaign decently but will play in the League Cup draw after winning just one point in the last two games. They drew 1-1 against Ipswich Town before losing 3-1 to Derby County at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon.

Dean Smith's men have allowed three goals against the Rams and their defensive line will certainly be tougher this time, no matter which team Emery sends to the field.

The Spanish coach will surely rotate his team here, but Arsenal should be considered a big favorite. They have a wide range of high-quality options in their ranks and anything but a safe victory at home would be a surprise for us.
