Brentford can shake off Saturday's loss to Derby County with an exciting trip to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup Third Round.
An away trip to one of the country’s biggest clubs could be just the tonic for the Bees after the weekend's disappointment. As for the players, the chance to pit themselves amongst Premier League elite is the perfect opportunity to impress the gaffer and nail a starting berth for Saturday’s Reading game.
Brentford will need to work hard to stop Aubameyang and Lacazette who have both scored in three of the last five Premier League games they’ve started together. They were on the scoresheet again against Everton during Arsenal’s last outing on Sunday and even if Unai Emery opts to rotate his squad for the game, they’ve got a good blend of youth and experience to call upon. The Gunners have now won five in a row, so beating them at the Emirates would be a huge boost before returning to Championship action.
Leo’s Prediction: Both teams to go in goalless at the break - 11/2
