Next Up: Arsenal

Bees head to North London next week

14 February 2022

Brentford's next fixture will be a second London derby in consecutive weeks. The Bees hosted Crystal Palace on Saturday in a match that finished 0-0. This coming Saturday, 19 February, Brentford will head to North London to face Arsenal in a match that will kick-off at 3pm.

Arsenal were not in action this weekend. They were due to face Chelsea but the game was postponed. Chelsea were winning the FIFA World Club Cup on Saturday so were not in Premier League action and the game will be played later in the season. Last time out, Arsenal beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 away from home.

That win was Arsenal's first in the Premier League in 2022, albeit they have only played three games. Recent home matches have seen them lose to Manchester City and draw with Arsenal. They also lost a Carabao Cup Semi Final Second Leg, and the tie, to Liverpool at home and were knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup away to Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal won four in a row to end their 2021 in the Premier League and are in the upper echelons of the table. They are sixth in the standings with games in hand over every team around them. Only the top three have won more games this season.

Brentford's draw with Palace leaves them 14th in the table, where they have been for much of the past few months. There are a group of seven teams separated by six points in the bottom half of the table. Brentford are in the middle of that pack.

These teams met on the first day of the Premier League season. Brentford’s first top flight game since 1947 finished with a well-earned victory thanks to goals from Sergi Canós and Christian Nørgaard. The Bees scored a goal in each half to record a deserved victory.

Our last trip to Arsenal was in September 2018, in the Third Round of the Carabao Cup. Arsenal won 3-1 in North London despite a memorable free kick from Alan Judge. The teams have not met in league competition since the 1946/47 season, Brentford's last in the First Division. Arsenal won at Griffin Park that season while the game in North London finished 2-2.

Tickets for the match are sold out and it will not be live on UK TV but Brentford fans can listen live on Bees Player. Full information on the service can be seen here. Bees fans living overseas should check this page to see if they can watch the game live.
