Pick Over 2.5
Arsenal saw their perfect start to the season brought to an end at Manchester United in their last league outing and may struggle to get back to winning ways at Brentford.
The Bees have made an excellent start to the season themselves with just one defeat in six games, and they are unbeaten at their Brentford Community Stadium home.
Both teams capable of scoring
One market that immediately stands out in this fixture is both teams to score as these two teams boast impressive attacking records, and both are susceptible at the back.
There have been goals at both ends in six of Brentford’s seven fixtures across all competitions, including in their last four league games, and they are yet to draw a blank.
Both teams to score has been a winning bet in five of Arsenal’s games and like their hosts they are yet to draw a blank after seven fixtures.
Arsenal can edge tight game
Brentford look a force at home with seven points from three games, scoring 10 goals and conceding just three in the process, but Arsenal may be able to leave with maximum points.
Although they lost the corresponding fixture 2-0 last season, The Gunners dominated the last time these two teams met at the Emirates in February as they claimed a 2-1 win.
Mikel Arteta’s men were in midweek Europa League action and that is a slight concern, but they should still have the quality to win this fixture and a 2-1 win for the visitors appeals.
Brentford’s Ivan Toney was called up to the England squad for the first time this week and he should head into Sunday’s game in confident mood after hitting a hat-trick in the 5-2 win against Leeds last time out, and he looks the most likely contender for an anytime goal for the hosts.
