Brentford marked their return to the top flight with a magnificent win over Arsenal.The Bees took the lead in the 23rd minute after former Liverpool man, Sergi Canos scored the newly promoted side’s first top flight goal in 74 years.Arteta would bring on Bukayo Saka, who received a round of applause from both set of fans as a form of support for the youngster, after his penalty miss at the Euro 2020 final loss and the subsequent racist abuses he was subjected to.He would fail to make an impact even as Pepe spurned some good chances.Brentford put the game to bed late on after Christian Norgaard headed home the winner past Leno in the 73rd minute.Arsenal began the day top of the table but are now last on the log and there is no doubt Mr. Arteta is already feeling the heat, as many see this season as a make or mar campaign for the young gaffer.
