Arsenal would kick off the new premier league season in less than 7 hours from now, as they travel away to welcome Brentford to the premier league after 60 years. The gunners would be looking to start the season strong, but their chances of doing that has greatly reduced as reports from reputable journalist David Orsntein claims that the North London club would not have the likes of Aubameyang and Lacazette against Brentford, as they are both currently down with an undisclosed illness.
Mikel Arteta now has to make a bold decision in promoting one of his numerous wingers to center forward today, especially with the likes of Martinelli and Balogun available. Third choice striker Eddie Nketiah has an ankle injury and would not be available tonight as well, which would limit Arteta to either starting Folarin Balogun, or playing Gabriel Martinelli as the strikers for the night.
Arsenal need to win this match by all means, but this would be a big blow to them and without their captain and second striker Brentford may seem impossible to defeat. What player would you start as strikers in the absence of both Lacazette and Aubameyang?
