Danny Welbeck believes he is back up to speed at Arsenal after a truncated pre-season because of the World Cup. Yes, the opposition were from the division below but Arsenal needed to have a striker in the right place at the right time to make their early superiority count.

Despite the daunting task of facing Unai Emery's expensively-assembled team, Smith is trying to stay grounded and will not think about the occasion until he arrives in north London. There's the club, the player and the team, and my focus is the team.

Wednesday marks the first time that Arsenal and Brentford have played each other since 1947, when the Gunners won 1-0 at Griffin Park.

Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have started to link up well under the Spanish coach in the Premier League.

"I am very happy individually with the player", Emery said after the game. And Danny Welbeck is working with this commitment, and when he is playing with a performance like today, he is helping the team.

"He's a great player, we see it every day in training and he's had lots of great performances in the under-23s", Welbeck told Arsenal's official website.

He continued: "There are three things when we are speaking about an individual".

'The performance and the commitment of the player is very high and also Danny Welbeck's situation is one thing for the club and for them'. Like I said, it is doable.

Brentford were finding cracks in the Arsenal defence in the last five minutes of the first stanza but they could not test the goalkeeper Bernd Leno and went into the break trailing 2-0 as a result.
