    Arsenal surrendered a 1-0 half-time lead as they were beaten 3-2 by Brentford in a friendly at The Emirates on Wednesday afternoon.

    Joe Willock fired the Gunners ahead as Mikel Arteta fielded two separate teams against the Championship promotion hopefuls in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

    The Bees hit back on the hour mark through Tariq Fosu, only for Alexandre Lacazette to put the hosts ahead again.

    However, it was the visitors who ran out winners with further goals from Halil Dervisoglu and late Shandon Baptiste strike.

    Bukayo Saka headed wide from close range and Nicolas Pepe fired in to the side netting in the first period which Arsenal edged,

    Arsenal switched their line-up at the break and the Bees made 10 changes in what was an open second period.

    Gabriel Martinelli forced Luke Daniels in to a low save and Lacazette headed wide as Arsenal pushed for a winner after Dervisoglu’s equaliser, but it was Baptiste who fired in from 20 yards off the post.



    Ahead of the game, and with just a week to go to the Premier League restart, players and coaching staff took a knee in a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The result comes after the Gunners hammered Charlton 6-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at the Emirates on Saturday.

    Arsenal’s First half XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Pablo Mari, Tierney; Willock, Ceballos, Saka; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang

    Arsenal’s Second half XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, David Luiz, Tierney; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette, Saka
