Brentford played their first game in the Premier League in 74 years in the wake of being advanced from the Championship last season. They completed third and beat Swansea City 2-0 toward the finish of May in the Championship play-off last and they were to confront an Arsenal side that had a terribly anti-climactic season, completing eighth and without European football. Mikel Arteta's side had effectively played four pre-season matches without winning any of their four matches and really would have liked to have the option to acquire three points off the recently advanced side. The Brentford team clearly had different plans as had they played their last top division match 74 years prior (26 May 1947) against Arsenal who sent them off with a 1 nil win.
The Brentford team played better compared to the Arsenal peers all through the first half as it seemed like the Gunners were still nostalgic of their pre-season break. Arteta also began the match without a lot of central members because of injuries and illnesses for instance Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Lacazette, Thoma Partey, Gabriel and Henry Nketiah.
By the 22nd moment, Sergi Canos put the ball past the Arsenal Goalee after some appalling defending and the stadium went wild with scenes deserving of any blockbuster sports film. The first half likewise featured some half chances by the Brentford players with Mbueno missing the goal after dribbling past two defenders and Mbueno also hit the upright once.
Subsequently, Christian Nørgaard scored again after another horrendous mistake in the penalty box as the Arsenal defenders could not stop a throw-in. The second half ended with Arsenal pummeling the Brentford defence with neither giving an inch ending the match two-nil in favour of Brentford.
