Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Brentford’s first-ever Premier League pre-game press conference, where Thomas Frank will be discussing Friday night’s home game against Arsenal as the excitement mounts.

The Bees will be the 50th club to have appeared in the Premier League since its inception, while this campaign also marks their first in England’s major league since the 1940s.

And the welcome by Mikel Arteta’s team from across the capital to the first crowd in their new stadium, which was left empty for much of last season due to the pandemic, adds another layer to the hustle and bustle.

Aside from team news and undoubtedly a lot of history-making talk, expect the head coach to address the transfer at the latest with Congolese winger Yoane Wissa, who arrived from Lorient last night.

Frank will appear in an online conference call from around 4 p.m. and you can follow everything the Dane has to say here.
