Arsenal’s Premier League season got off to a losing start as the Gunners went down 2-0 to Brentford.
Sergi Canos fired the home side in front in the second half, beating Bernd Leno at his near post, and the German keeper was fouled from a long throw which led to the second – although the Arsenal defending was weak.
Far from ideal for Mikel Arteta, who was without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Lacazette through illness, as well as the injured Thomas Partey and Gabriel.
Next up, Chelsea. Yikes.
