Brentford play Arsenal in the opening game of the new 2021/22 season on Friday night, in what will be the Bees’ first Premier League game since 1947. Brentford will go into the game believing that they have a chance to defeat an Arsenal team that has struggled in recent seasons under Mikel Arteta’ guidance. Arsenal have a number of injury concerns for Friday’s match, with many key players still recovering. Arteta’s team will be missing Gabriel Magalhaes, Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah, who are all scheduled to return from injury in September. Brentford’s top goal scorer last season Ivan Toney may miss the game against Arsenal due to a minor injury sustained during pre-season but he is still expected to be available for the match.
