Brentford Marks Historic Return to the English Premier League on First Match: A Review

Brentford’s return to English Premier League was signaled with an outstanding performance in their first match.

Marking an epoch making even after being absent from the top tier League for 74-year.

It is worthy to note that such moment will remain memorable and magnificent with victory over woeful Arsenal as they began their Premier League campaign in style.

Brentford had completely everything in stock to take on Gunners and emerge victorious on their first match.

The were vibrant, skilful and energetic on a night of high emotion at the home stadium (Brentford Community Stadium), indicating a great start to the campaign. Where as, putting a deep cut with huge pain on the Gunners in an engaging 90 minutes for the Mikel Arteta’s side.

Sergi Canos, gave Brentford the lead in 22 minutes when he drove low past keeper Bernd Leno at the near post, even though, Arsenal complained that the ball had went off the pitch.

Rowe clearly, went beyond underrating for Arsenal, proving a save out of Brentford keeper David Raya, who also brilliantly denied Nicolas Pepe late on before the home fans thrilled in huge cheers and elation when the second goal came with barely with 17 minutes left on the clock.

Arsenal had to pay a ransom of not having favourite upfront pair of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they were sick, paid the price for a needlessly attempting to defend substitute Mads Bech Sorensen’s routine long throw.

New arrival Ben White, (£50m defender) was particularly blame deserving as Christian Norgaard emerged to head home.

Home supporters, knowingly, jubilated wildly at the final whistle, but this was a result and performance that immediately turns focus of pundits and every other lover of the round leader game on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as he desperately needs to better he’s performance compare to last season.

Indeed, it was an emotional moment for the management, fans and supporters of Brentford as the broke a 74 year old record of defeating a big team.

To them, it was unbelievably possible that they could achieve such a task owning to team they logged horns with. But clearly speaking, their show of determination, energy and winning attitude really made this possible.
