Arsenal vs Brentford: Free-scoring Gunners host Bees with a chance to go top of Premier League – stream, TV, team news

ARSENAL can go top of the Premier League with a win against London rivals Brentford – and the odds are stacked heavily in their favour.

The Gunners made history at Bramall Lane on Monday after becoming the first team in English football to score FIVE or more away goals on three consecutive occasions.

Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Kai Havertz, Declan Rice, Ben White and an own goal from Jayden Bogle saw Mikel Arteta’s men thrash Sheffield United.

And not only have Arsenal now won seven games on the spin, but they have scored a staggering 31 goals in that time.

However, Ivan Toney and Co will be out to spoil the party – similar to what happened in the title run-in last season.

But Arteta’s side have the incentive of climbing up to the summit of the table should they pick up three points at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta confirmed that the Brazilian suffered a cut on his foot, but Martinelli will need further tests to see whether he can feature against Brentford.
