What a delivery that is from Xhaka, who dinks a delightful ball into the six-yard box where Gabriel Jesus is lurking.
He has plenty to do with the header but does excellently to get it past a diving Raya.
Jensen trying to pierce the Arsenal back line with a couple of long throws in quick succession.
That tactic caused issues in this fixture last season but Ben White and his Arsenal team-mates deal with the danger very effectively this time.
Gabriel felt a similar issue, just below his right knee, in the warm-up but will continue for now.
Tomiyasu is warming up as play resumes.
Brentford have no conceded four headers this season from set pieces. That’s not a stat Thomas Frank will be happy with.
His side must respond now but they have looked a little toothless going forward so far. Toney’s most telling contributions have been defensive.
Gabriel Jesus wins a pretty soft-looking free-kick from Ben Mee and Arsenal have the chance to deliver. Martinelli swings it across and Brentford deal with it well, with Mathias Jensen clearing.
Arsenal with a high line there and Ivan Toney was in space and clear but Josh Dasilva just delayed playing it and it let Gabriel off the hook.
It has been a fairly low-key lunchtime match in west London but first blood goes to the Gunners with the help of goalline technology.
Lots of time left in this one and Brentford won’t panic. A delay first as Gabriel is down injured.
