Brentford host Arsenal on Sunday lunchtime in a Premier League meeting between two of the capital's fast-starters.

The Gunners lost their first three matches last year but sit top of the table going into the weekend's fixtures with five victories from six outings.

Brentford vs Arsenal score prediction

Brentford have beaten Arsenal just once since the Second World War broke out - although that victory did come at Sunday's venue barely a year ago.

However, for all the haunting memories Arsenal will have of that balmy Friday night in August 2021, Mikel Arteta's side have undergone a dramatic facelift. Aaron Ramsdale has replaced Bernd Leno, William Saliba has ushered Pablo Mari out of the way and Gabriel Jesus offers a different threat entirely to the inexperienced Folarin Balogun.

Frank's side have been in riotous form going forward this season - only Manchester City have outscored Brentford in the league - but Arsenal may have just enough to overcome their hosts' hot streak this Sunday.

Prediction: Brentford 1-2 Arsenal
