Why you should back Arsenal
The Gunners are one of the of the league's best teams on both ends and come into this one at mostly full strength in attack. Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus are both expected to play, and with them alongside Bukayo Saka, Declan Rice and Gabriel Martinelli, the Arsenal attack is potent. Eddie Nketiah is the top scorer with five league goals, and Saka has four goals and four assists. Odegaard has three goals, and Leandro Trossard has two despite starting just three of his eight appearances.
Jesus, who has started four matches this season, had 11 goals and six assists in 25 games in 2022-23. He and Martinelli each have one goal, but the 22-year-old Martinelli had 15 last season. The Gunners have conceded 10 goals, tied for fewest in the league, and have scored 26, fifth-most. They are unbeaten in the past four meetings (3-1-0), with a 7-2 goal advantage. One of Brentford's goals was in the 93rd minute, and the other was by Ivan Toney, who is on a long-term suspension. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Brentford
With the exception of the loss to Liverpool, the Bees have been strong against some of the league's top teams. They opened the season with a 2-2 draw with Spurs and beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last month. That was part of a three-game win streak that led into their trip to Anfield. They'll try to bounce back at home, where they have lost once in six matches (2-3-1) and have a 12-10 goal advantage. Just eight of Arsenal's 26 goals have come in road matches.
The Bees outshot the Gunners 18-10 overall and 4-3 on target in the League Cup meeting, despite holding just 40% possession. Brentford are dangerous on the counter-attack, and Bryan Mbeumo, Yoanne Wissa and Mathias Jensen are capable scorers. Mbeumo has six goals, tied for sixth in the league, and Wissa and Jensen have three apiece. The Gunners have a Champions League match on Wednesday and will need to be mindful of playing time for some key players. See which team to pick here.
