Arsenal will be relieved they weren’t punished for their loss as Manchester City fell 1-0 to Tottenham to keep their five-point lead intact.

The Gunners will be hoping to maintain their lead at the top of the table but Brentford will provide a stiff test.

Thomas Frank’s side are flying high in seventh and are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League games.

The Bees haven’t lost away from home since a 4-0 thrashing at Villa Park in October.
