Is Brentford vs Arsenal on TV? Gunners aim to get over disappointing Spurs draw in huge Carabao Cup clash – team news | The Sun

ARSENAL face their second London derby in three days when they travel to Brentford for a thrilling Carabao Cup fourth-round match.

The Gunners thought that they were on their way to a fourth consecutive North London derby win at the Emirates when Bukayo Saka tucked his penalty away against Tottenham on Sunday,

However, Jorginho's "painful" mistake led to Spurs skipper Son Heung-min equalising within seconds of the restart, forcing the points to be shared between the bitter rivals.

But the Bees didn't have the best of weekends either as they handed out-of-form Everton their first win of the season.

So with both teams itching for a win to avenge their previous outings, it makes for an interesting Carabao Cup encounter.

Furthermore, former Brentford goalkeeper David Raya returning to the Gtech Community Stadium makes things a little more spicy.

Mikel Arteta also has a number of concerns including £105million man Declan Rice who suffered a back issue in the North London derby draw.

But it has been confirmed that Rice's injury is not as serious as first thought and he could return for the away trip to Brentford along with Brazilian sensation Gabriel Martinelli.

However, the Arsenal gaffer will be sweating over the fitness of Leandro Trossard who was forced to pull out of Sunday's encounter with a slight muscle issue.
