Brentford's last Premier League game was the 5-2 thrashing of Leeds – and that wasn't exactly a one-off. The Bees come into this tie as one of the most free-scoring sides in the division – they've scored two or more goals in four of their six games so far – with striker Ivan Toney earning his first England cap off the back of his performances so far this season. Can they keep it up when the Gunners visit on Sunday?

Thomas Frank has made two changes to the side that beat Leeds, with Ajer getting his first start of the season in place of Baptiste, and Arsenal academy graduate Josh Dasilva in for Keane Lewis-Potter. Sergi Canós makes the bench.

Arsenal succumbed to their first defeat of the season last time out when a rejuvenated Manchester United put three past Aaron Ramsdale, but they've been to Switzerland in the Europa League since then, beating FC Zurich 2-1 with a much-changed team. The Gunners lost 2-0 in this fixture last year, but this is a very different Arsenal side that will want to show that its good start isn't just a flash in the pan.

There are three changes to the side that lost at Old Trafford two weeks ago, with Partey returning to the starting XI, Vieira replacing Ødegaard, and Tierney in for the injured Oleksandr Zinchenko. 15-year-old midfielder Ethan Nwaneri is named on the bench.

Kick-off is at 12pm BST (7am ET) today, Sunday 18th September. Read on to find out on how to watch a Brentford vs Arsenal live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.

Premier League football fans in the US can watch a Brentford vs Arsenal live stream on USA Network which can be accessed through cable-cutting services Sling (opens in new tab) and FuboTV (opens in new tab).

Sling currently has an offer where you can get 50% off your first month of its Sling TV Blue package. That's $17.50 down from $35. Meanwhile, you can watch a Brentford vs Arsenal free live stream with the 7-day free trial of FuboTV (opens in new tab). There are no long contracts with either service. If you're not happy with them, you can cancel them at any time.

Of course, Sling and FuboTV are only available within the States so be sure to use a VPN (opens in new tab) if you're a US subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it's reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch a Brentford vs Arsenal live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Brentford vs Arsenal live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are easy to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Match Of The Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match Of The Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

Match Of The Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.

The show won't be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match Of The Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it's broadcast.

You can download Match Of The Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match Of The Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
