Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has admitted that his team “always suffer” against Brentford.

The Gunners host Thomas Frank’s men this Saturday looking to go top of the Premier League.

Arteta’s head into the game in stunning form, having scored 24 goals in their last five top-flight games.

But Arteta is worried about Brentford, who held Chelsea to a 2-2 draw last weekend.

The Bees held Arsenal to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture last season, and speaking to reporters on Thursday, Arteta said: “Every point that we left [last season] hurts.

“It’s still there and that’s it. But we have a lot to play for. We know the difficulty of the match. We always suffer against Brentford.”
