Brentford FC, Watford FC and Norwich City are the 3 new clubs who got promoted from the Championship league. Norwich City is the strongest of all, they won the championship trophy and also produced Emi Buendia as Championship best player.

However, Brentford FC is not a side to be underrated at all. They played the play-off last two seasons but were not successful, they also played it last season and have now made it to EPL.

This shows their level of consistency despite selling of Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma.

Bernard Leno will get back in action for Arsenal, he is 1st choice goalkeeper although there was a bit of bad performance from him last season.

Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes are the central defenders, this combination looks stronger than the combination of Maguire and Victor Lindelof. Kieran Tierney is back from injury, he will occupy the left-back position while Callum Chambers becomes the right-back.

Nuno Tavares can also come in for Tierney in the second half while Hector Bellerin replaces Chambers.
