The hosts have only managed to win twice this season and one of those victories came in the previous round of the Carabao Cup, against Newport County. They are winless in their last four league games and have lost their last two games in a row.
The Gunners, on the other hand, are heading into the mid-week Cup tie on the back of a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in their first North London Derby of the season. They will be looking to return to winning ways with what should be a straightforward challenge away from home.

Mikel Arteta has provided an update on Arsenal's squad ahead of their Carabao Cup third-round clash with Brentford. Unfortunately, Declan Rice, who was substituted with a back issue during the North London derby, has not yet trained and remains uncertain for the upcoming game.
Bukayo Saka, who also came off during the derby, has been unable to participate in sessions, making his availability for the Brentford match questionable. Leandro Trossard, Thomas Partey, Jurrien Timber and Gabriel Martinelli won't be fit for the game either.
