Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 2-0 loss in the Premier League to Brentford.
The Gunners were hit with a couple of major team news blows before kick off with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette being ruled out with illness.
The pair were replaced by Gabriel Martinelli and Flo Balogun in an exciting looking line up for Mikel Arteta’s side but there was little they could do at the Brentford Community Stadium.
The Bees took the lead through an early Sergi Canos shot and despite dominating possession Arsenal once again looked clueless in the final third.
Thomas Frank’s side then doubled their lead in the second half as Christian Noorgaard headed in after some shoddy defending from a long throw.
It was an awful start to the season for the Gunners who look in desperate need of some reinforcements in the transfer market.
