Arsenal vs Brentford - Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction
By Sean Walsh
Arsenal can extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to eight points with a win against Brentford on Saturday.
The Gunners were handed a reprieve after losing to relegation-battling Everton last weekend as rivals Tottenham managed to beat Manchester City.
That means Arsenal's advantage remains at five points, though they have a game in hand over Pep Guardiola's men.
Brentford make the journey across London without a loss in nine Premier League games, forcing their way into the hunt for a European place.

Arsenal vs Brentford score prediction
Brentford are playing Arsenal at an opportune time - Frank will undoubtedly spend the week rewatching Everton's win and examining Sean Dyche's methods.
The Bees' record against the big six this season is rather impressive, with their only defeat coming in the reverse fixture against the Gunners.
Arsenal are beginning to teeter, but they should have enough in the tank to get the job done here.
