            Arsenal vs Brighton Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Brighton travels to the Emirates this weekend, a venue that they have won at in three consecutive matches. This exact fixture last season ended in a 3-0 win for the Seagulls, and Arsenal will be desperate to end this run of poor form against this weekend’s opponent.

            Arsenal

            The Gunners have been excellent this season, playing with confidence and intent. After 16 matches in the Premier League, Arteta’s side has earned a position in second place with 36 points. They’ve only lost twice and won 11 times.

            Arsenal have been dangerous in attack and secure at the back, as reflected by their goals scored of 2.06 per game on average and goals conceded of just 0.94 on average, the joint best defence in the top flight.

            Last time out in the Premier League, Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat on the road to Aston Villa. The visitors dominated the ball but were unable to find their shooting boots at Villa Park.

            Brighton

            Roberto De Zerbi has had to deal with plenty of setbacks this season, mainly in the form of injuries. This has forced the Italian to rely on youth and inexperienced players. Nevertheless, Brighton are in eighth with 26 points after 16 matches.

            The Seagulls’ Achilles heel this season has been their poor defensive record, which has seen them concede 1.75 goals per game on average. They’re also one of two teams to have not kept a clean sheet all season in the league! However, Brighton have scored the same number of goals this season, 33.

            Last weekend, Brighton absolutely destroyed Burnley at home, registering 72% possession, 11 shots on target, and nine corners. However, the game ended in a frustrating 1-1 draw.

            Verdict?

            Arsenal go into the game with almost a fully rested squad, as Arteta was able to rotate in the 1-1 Champions League draw against PSV this week. Whereas the Brighton side played an intense game versus Marseille, where they topped the group.

            The visitors go into the game on a massive high, but they’ve only won three of their seven away games. Arsenal are unbeaten at home in eight games, winning six.

            The final prediction is Arsenal 3-1 Brighton.

            The exact same XI that was defeated by Aston Villa last weekend should be given a chance to redeem themselves. This means Bukayo Saka, Declan Rice, and Ben White will all start.

            Brighton have multiple players out of the tie, including Ansu Fati, Pervis Estupinan, and Solly March. De Zerbi will set his side up in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation.
