Newcomer Brentford opens the Premier League by beating Arsenal
Brentford have embarked on its first airline campaign since 1947 with a stunning 2-0 win over Arsenal in the opening game of the Premier League season.
BRENTFORD, England (AP) – Brentford kicked off their first flight campaign since 1947 with a stunning 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Friday in the opening game of the Premier League season.
Sergi Canos put Brentford ahead in the 22nd minute and Christian Noergaard scored the second in the 73rd minute after Arsenal failed to tackle the ball for long, giving the club a boost to a Premier League start in front of nearly 16,500 fans on the pitch.
Those fans finally had the opportunity to celebrate inside the stadium, which opened last year during the closing when no sponsors were allowed to enter the games.
They waited even longer for a time like this. Brentford’s last game in the English Premier League was won by Arsenal 1-0, in May 1947. The team is now at the top of the league at least tonight, ahead of the rest of the weekend.
“No one here will ever forget that. I’m proud to be a part of that, “said Brentford manager Thomas Frank.” I believe in this team of players, so even though I knew we were going to face Arsenal, a big club with incredible players, I felt I would be disappointed if we didn’t beat them. “
For Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, it was another disappointing performance and a worrying start. The team finished only eight last season and showed no signs of fixing its previous problems. With strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both missing – Arteta said they felt “unhealthy” – Arsenal have also struggled to create any kind of clear scoring chances despite controlling the game’s stretches.
And their defensive mistakes show up again.
Brentford’s first game came after right-back Calum Chambers cut the ball off the line, only to return with Ethan Pinnock to Canos, who cut inside the defender and fired a low shot into Bernd Leno’s post.
By scoring the second goal, Arsenal defenders allowed Mads Bech Sorensen to throw a long distance into the six-yard box and Norgaard reached a distance to the empty net.

Arsenal academy striker Folarin Balogun was given his first Premier League debut but was sent off an hour earlier. He was replaced by Buka Saka, who was given a chance to strengthen Brentford fans after he was subjected to racial harassment following his defeat by England in the final European Championship match against Italy.
“I do not want to make excuses. We had enough team there to get different results, ”said Arteta. “We know we have to improve.”
