Latest Brentford team news
For Brentford, Christian Eriksen will not be involved despite playing in a behind-closed-doors friendly and Frank will make a late call on Ivan Toney.
Latest Arsenal team news
Gabriel Martinelli will not be available after his controversial red card during the win over Wolves although there is some brighter news in regards to Takehiro Tomiyasu.
The defender is stepping up his attempts to return to the starting lineup this weekend after picking up a calf injury in the Carabao Cup semi-final loss to Liverpool. Still, with Cedric Soares available, Arteta might be tempted to ease Tomiyasu back into the team slowly.
Bernd Leno will also be available after recovering from Covid.
