A noon kick-off today pits Brentford against Arsenal in a cross-town capital showdown.

A defeat to Manchester United in their last domestic outing ended the Gunners’ perfect start to the season, although they have since dispatched FC Zurich in the Europa League.

With Tottenham and Liverpool up after the international period, Mikel Arteta will know how important it could prove mentally to keep Arsenal top of the pile going into the break.

Brentford sit inside the top half after making it three games unbeaten with a 5-2 romp past Leeds last time out, and have already claimed a hefty ‘Big Six’ scalp at home this campaign.


Kick-off time, date and venue

Brentford vs Arsenal is scheduled for a 12pm BST kick-off on Sunday, September 18, 2022. It was originally set to start at 2pm.
