Checkout Arsenal  Injury and  suspension list vs. Brentford
Arsenal open the new Premier League season on Friday evening as they take on newly-promoted Brentford in the 2021-22 opener.


Mikel Arteta's men are seeking to improve on a dismal eighth-placed finish last term and will navigate a campaign without European football for the first time in 25 years.


The Gunners claimed a pair of 4-1 training ground victories over Watford and Millwall in pre-season, but three of their more high-profile clashes against Hibernian, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all ended in defeat.
