Premier League Martinelli, Saka Available For Brentford Clash- Arteta

Manager Mikel Arteta stated that Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are probably in the starting lineup when Arsenal hosts Brentford on Saturday.

During Monday’s 6-0 victory over Sheffield United, Saka was ruled out due to illness and Martinelli had a cut.

With 61 points, Arsenal is two points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League. On Sunday, Liverpool will take on the reigning champions, Manchester City, who are second in the standings with 62 points.

Arsenal, who have won seven straight league games, according to Arteta, should concentrate more on keeping up their own momentum than on the outcomes of their championship competitors.

We’re pretty positive that hopefully they can be part of that. But we’ll have to see,” Arteta told reporters on Thursday.

We just have to focus on our game, try to win and then on Sunday it’s a game that should be beautiful to watch for any supporter,” he said.

“I will enjoy watching two of the best teams in Europe. I will sit there with my kids and enjoy the match.”

In November, Brentford, with 26 points and a great record, played a close home match against Arsenal until Kai Havertz scored the game’s winning goal in the 89th minute for the visitors.

We know the demands we have and what Brentford will ask of us to win the game… we always suffer against Brentford,” Arteta said.
