27′ Norgaard gives away a foul

And we’re straight down the other end and it’s a compact and resolute Brentford that keep Arsenal out once more.

Brentford have done really well to spot the out-ball that Mbeumo offers on the left, and he has done well to get straight back up the pitch from a deep defensive position several times this afternoon already.

Arsenal get a free-kick after a coming together between Norgaard and Partey.

25′ Off the bar!

Should score!

Ivan Toney has his head in his hands – but he did so well in the build-up.

Arsenal struggle to clear the ball, and Toney and Mbeumo pounce on it.

The Cameroonian gets his head up and cuts the ball back into the middle of the box, and Toney lashes a strike on goal but it clatters into the crossbar.

24′ Arsenal’s turn for a corner

Brentford are back on the defensive now, and have all 11 men back behind the ball.

Odegaard wriggles clear on the right to send the ball into the box, but it’s repelled and Martinelli wins a corner.

Odegaard launches it toward Martinelli un marked on the edge of the box, but it is cleared by Brentford.

21′ Poor second corner

The first goes short, where will the second go?

Mbeumo sends it into the mix, but it’s cleared relatively easily and it goes all the way back to  Raya.

The Spaniard launches it towards Norgaard in the Arsenal box, but over hits it.
