Arsenal opened the 2021-22 Premier League season across London on Friday to compete with newcomer Brentford under the lights. Mikel is a favorite of Arteta, but Thomas will announce his arrival in the big leagues with the skulls of the Gunners towards Frank.
The North London side will be under tremendous pressure to score all three points in front of the packed Brentford Community Stadium. Arsenal’s pre-season has been bad, losing to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in preparation for the first game of the Premier League season.
Artita will be without a Thomas party for the season opener after Ghanian’s midfielder was injured during the game against Chelsea. Albert Samby Lukonga, who signed in the summer, is expected to be a deputy, while Ben White is also expected to make آمد 50 million.
The Gunners manager has so far struggled to increase his attack in the window, and constantly creating opportunities has been a problem. Artita hopes that Pierre-Emerick Obamaing can put aside his poor form and return to his goal-scoring methods at Brentford.
Coming to the bees, Frank’s team will strive for a place in the top division of English football for the first time since 1947. They made it to the playoffs after finishing third in the championship last season behind winners Norwich City and Watford.
Brentford will have Ivan Tony, the championship’s top scorer, who lost his last pre-season game against Valencia after recovering from a minor neck injury to the striker. He scored 31 goals for the Bees last season to help them make the playoffs before playing a key role in their win over Swansea in the playoffs.
