Arsenal blow: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang & Alexandre Lacazette both doubts for Chelsea clash

Arsenal downed by Brentford

Arsenal got their 2021/22 Premier League campaign underway on Friday evening.

The Gunners faced a trip across London for a clash with newly-promoted Brentford.

The Bees have lit up the Championship for the last several years with their exciting brand of attacking football, and look set to continue that into the Premier League as well.

Brentford would take the lead in their first-ever PL game after just 22 minutes via a lovely curling effort from winger, Sergi Canos.

Christian Norgaard then put the result beyond doubt after 73 minutes, earning Brentford a historic win that will live long in the club’s memory:

Aubameyang & Lacazette could miss Chelsea game

Arsenal, meanwhile, must now turn their attentions to yet another London derby, this time facing off with Chelsea on Sunday, August 22nd.

The Gunners, though, once again look as though they could be without two key stars for that game.

It was reported on Friday afternoon that both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were set to miss out vs Brentford due to them being ‘unwell’.

And now, football.london are reporting that the pair are also both doubts for Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea next week.

Little more information has been provided as to what is actually wrong with the pair, but hopefully it is nothing too serious.
