Why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang & Alexandre Lacazette are set to miss Arsenal’s clash with Brentford

Brentford vs Arsenal

The Premier League is finally back on our screens later today.

The first match of the 2021/22 campaign will see Brentford play host to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

This game will be the Bees’ first-ever in the Premier League after they won the 2021 play-off final.

Brentford are a very attack-minded side and should bring an exciting brand of football to the top-flight this year.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are looking to secure a top-six finish for the first time in several years.

The Gunners have now been forced to settle for two 8th place finishes in 2019/20 and 2020/21.

But after a fairly active summer and a positive end to last campaign, Arsenal fans were no doubt fairly optimistic heading into Friday’s game.

Lacazette & Aubameyang to miss out vs Brentford

However, that optimism is likely lessened somewhat following the latest Arsenal team news update which has emerged on Friday afternoon.

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will miss Arsenal’s opening game of the Premier League season tonight.

The reason for this is said to be that both forwards are ‘unwell’. No further details are given as to what is actually wrong with the pair, but it will nevertheless come as big blow to Arsenal, who are already without the services of Thomas Partey.
