Brentford Preview – Can Bees sting The Gunners?

It will be a momentous occasion for Brentford and their fans when The Bees take to the field against Arsenal in their first ever match in the Premier League and the occasion is made even bigger by the fact that it’s an all-London clash as well.

Brentford finally secured promotion up to the top flight after a few near misses when they registered a 2-0 win against Swansea City in the Championship play-off final at Wembley, and having lost just one of their last 12 home matches in all competitions, The Bees will be hoping for a solid start on Friday night.

Brentford last appeared in the top flight of English football jus before the 2nd World War back in 1938 and they’ve failed to beat Arsenal in the last four meetings, losing three of these games.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Arsenal Preview – Can Arsenal show intent?

Many people were left scratching their heads as to why Arsenal stuck by manager, Mikel Arteta, following what was an abject season (by their standards) with Arsenal finishing outside of the top seven in 8th place, particularly given the cut-throat, results-based industry that football has become.

Arsenal will be hoping that they can pick up where they left off though at the end of last season as The Gunners collected five wins on the trot which may have just about saved Arteta’s bacon, but the pressure will be upon the visitors to hit the ground running this term, starting on Friday night.

Victories over Newcastle United, West Brom, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Brighton should give Arsenal the edge over Brentford in this curtain-raiser to the new Premier League season.
