The Premier League returns with the opening match scheduled for the London derby, with promoted Brentford hosting Arsenal.
Brentford was promoted to the Premier League through the play-offs last season, which was the first time the team played in the top league.
In the off-season, the team kept recruiting. However, limited by the problem of financial resources, the team took the practical route and did not have any big name players to join.
In its first season in the Premier League, it is OK as long as the team can stay in relegation.
Brentford’s home performance in the Championship was very impressive. They have only lost 2 home games in the whole season, but there are many draws.
Arsenal only got 8th place in the league last season, which was very disappointing. There was no major reinforcement in the off-season, and I think it will be difficult to reach the top 4 again this year.
The new season will see little improvement in the midfield and forward line, and continue to solidify the defense.
Brighton’s star center back Ben White joined the team and was praised by the media in turn. But Ben White was playing as a center back at Brighton, and it’s not sure if he has the same rhythm and so many chances to show after switching to Arsenal as before.
And Ben White has only played in the Premier League for one season, so experience is not much to talk about, and the media is overrating him.
Judging from the few friendly matches Brentford played in the off-season, the team seems to be well prepared.
Despite being in the Championship before, the team did not fall short in several encounters with the Premier League. Brentford’s front line is not comparable to Arsenal’s, but Arsenal’s front line players are not in good form either, so I don’t think there will be too many goals in this game tomorrow.
Prediction one：Arsenal to win
Prediction two：Total Goals-under 2.5
