Arsenal team news

Both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli were unable to play the full game against Sheff Utd thanks to injuries, but Saka is still expected to be fit enough to start against Brentford. Martinelli may be spared, though, as Arteta has to keep next week's return leg against Porto in the Champions League in mind.

Oleksandr Zinchenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu are contenders to make returns from injury, but Jurrien Timber is still out.

David Raya is not allowed to play against his parent club before his loan from Brentford becomes permanent, so Aaron Ramsdale is set to start between the sticks.

Arsenal predicted lineup vs Brentford

Arsenal predicted lineup vs Brentford (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard.

Brentford's 2-2 draw against Chelsea didn't produce any fresh injuries for Thomas Frank's side, but he is also not expecting to have any of his existing absentees available on Saturday.

Bryan Mbeumo, Kevin Schade, Aaron Hickey, Ethan Pinnock, Rico Henry and Josh Dasilva are all still out injured, while Ben Mee is set to miss the rest of the season in a major blow for the Bees.

Frank also has to decide whether Yoane Wissa, who scored a brilliant overhead kick against Chelsea, will continue in attack alongside Ivan Toney or if Neal Maupay will come back in.

Brentford predicted lineup vs Arsenal

Brentford predicted lineup vs Arsenal (3-5-2): Flekken; Zanka, Collins, Ajer; Roerslev, Janelt, Jensen, Norgaard, Reguilon; Wissa, Toney.

Arsenal vs Brentford score prediction

Arsenal have been scoring goals with complete ease recently, having bagged 22 in their past five matches in all competitions. They are very impressive at home and, even with the match against Porto to think about, this should be a stroll for the Gunners.

Brentford are even weaker at the back without Mee, but their organisation should at least limit the scoring a bit more than teams like Sheff Utd and Burnley have managed in recent weeks.

Even so, don't expect the Bees to get anything from north London on Saturday evening.

Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 Brentford
