Arsenal are still on vacation

The Gunners were overtaken by a newly promoted who was making his Premier debut. Spanish Sergi Canós scored the first goal of the season.


The return to the first division could not have been better. After 74 years without reaching the elite of English football, Brentford have returned to the Premier League and have done so with a 2-0 win against Arsenal. The 'bees' fans filled their stadium in what was also the return of the fans to the stands and celebrated with euphoria Sergi Canós' goal, in the first half, which put them ahead on the scoreboard. The 24-year-old Spanish footballer picked up a ball at the peak of the area, outlined inward and kicked Leno's short post, scoring his first Premier League goal after making his debut for Liverpool in 2016 ... when he played the final matchday .

The 'Gunners' failed to turn the game around. Although they improved in the second half, the initiative of Smith-Rowe and Tierney was not enough to generate a goal. Mikel Arteta could not count on Thomas Partey, Gabriel, Lacazette or Aubameyang, so he had to start the young Balogun for the first time. Ben White also made his debut in the center of the rear, but was signaled in Brentford's first goal ... and in the second, when he failed to clear in his own area and led to the arrival of Norgaard to finish at pleasure after a serve of your team's band.

Brentford is the first leader of the 2021/22 season in the year of their promotion to the Premier League. Those of Thomas Frank will be one of the teams to follow during the rest of the course. Their letter of introduction, defeating Arsenal 2-0, is already a cause for praise.
