Now 10 PL games unbeaten with a 1-1 away draw against the Gunners

There was no way we were going to get anything at the Emirates against table-topping Arsenal. They were looking to bounce back following their defeat to Everton and they are the only team to beat us at the Gtech this season. Yet during a goalless first half we did have several opportunities to break the deadlock. A great cross from Toney sees Henry spurn a very good chance, then Toney hits the top of the post when he really should have scored. In the second half Arsenal pushed forward and despite Toney shooting into the side netting, it was only a matter of time before they scored. In the 66th minute the Brentford defenders were ball watching and Trossard tapped in at the far post. A very poor goal to give away. We got back on level terms when Toney headed in from close range in the 74th minute. The goal should have been ruled out because Norgaard who passed to Toney was offside when he got the ball. Somehow VAR missed it. I will take a point and overall we probably deserved it.
