Brentford v Arsenal LIVE: Vieira, Partey and Tierney start as Odegaard and Zinchenko miss out as Arteta names 15-year-old on bench, Toney involved after England call-up

    Brentford’s Ivan Toney will be aiming to continue his good form against Arsenal today after receiving his first England call-up.

    The striker’s five goals and two assists has only been bettered by Erling Haaland so far this season. 

    After receiving his call-up on Thursday, Toney will now aim to prove Gareth Southgate right against Mikel Arteta’s high-flying side.

    The Gunners have won five of their opening six games and return to action after they had two consecutive matches postponed.

    In this fixture last campaign, Thomas Frank’s side came out 2-0 winners in the club’s maiden top-flight game.
