Brentford’s friendly can lead to Arsenal in the weekend’s clash with Emirates

Brentford's friendly could hint at how Arsenal will line up on Saturday

A three behind in Brentford’s win could be repeated against Norwich

Arsenal is over 4-0 winners against Brentford in a closed-door friendly at London Colney last Thursday, with social media in overdrive mocking the club for failing to win in their Premier League “open house” match.

But the result, which saw Mikel Arteta use a three-way system on his back, could be the key to how Arsenal will look to finally get their campaign off the ground against Norwich next Saturday at the Emirates Stadium.

Both Ben White and Gabriel started with Pablo MarĂ­, while CĂ©dric was deployed on the left side with Calum Chambers on the opposite flank. And it was CĂ©dric who came out of the friendly looking like gold dust after hitting a double at the end of the second half to leave the game out of question. Gabriel also found the back of the net, putting Arsenal 1-0 ahead early in the second frame.

While many will expect Arsenal to run out of winners against Daniel Farke’s Norwich despite the club’s poor start to the 2021-22 campaign, something has to give under Mikel Arteta if the Gunners are to finally get out of the garage. No goal scored with nine goals delivered and propping up the Premier League is a poor display, even with losses expected against Chelsea and Manchester City.

Utilizing a back three would allow Arsenal to remain confident of creating opportunities from wide areas while also having additional coverage at the rear given the lack of a true midfielder in the first-choice XI. But with Kieran Tierney almost certain to return to the team despite being out in international service with Scotland, the only place at stake in the back at the birth of the right-back will have to be contested by the aforementioned CĂ©dric & Chambers. as well as potentially Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Maitland-Niles languishes without definition

One of the most uncomfortable stories to come out of the summer window for Arsenal is Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ status. The English international looked poised to leave the club this summer amid Everton’s interest, but opted to stay in the final hour after having sit-down conversations with Mikel Arteta.

On the surface, this would suggest that Maitland-Niles will have a more defined role in the team this season, after languishing on the outside looking in last season in the wake of Arsenal rejecting advances from the Wolves last summer after they the club failed to meet the Hale End Graduate Gunner Ratings.

His record for the club as it is is one that has seen him displayed on the right side of defense and he has shone for the club in a right-back role before. Now that HĂ©ctor BellerĂ­n has left the club for Real Betis, there is scope to suggest that Maitland-Niles will play a role there once again, but his desire to also deploy down the middle in central midfield could offer valuable, and necessary depth. , in a position where the club is incredibly light.

Both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are ready to leave for AFCON in the middle of the season. And with the former also struggling to stay in shape during his stint in North London thus far, and Recent interest from Turkish clubs in securing Elneny’s signature Before his transfer window closes, Maitland-Niles can still get his desire to be used in central midfield alongside Partey, Granit Xhaka and Sambi Lokonga as the club’s top picks.

As with almost everything right now with Arsenal, there are many more questions than answers, and the situation is likely to remain frustrating until guidance is provided.
