Premier League Arsenal vs Brighton
Arsenal vs Brighton Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-1.

This is one of the most intriguing fixtures in the penultimate round of Premier League games this season as Arsenal – who are closing in on a top four spot – host Brighton, who are in the midst of a relegation battle.

Predictions

Arsenal’s hopes of a top four finish have been severely derailed in recent weeks – they have lost three matches in succession and have slipped to fifth.

The Gunners have suffered notable defeats to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester – their worst run of results in the campaign at the worst time.

Brighton are on an even worse run of form – they are winless in eight matches but their 1-1 draw against Newcastle last time out ended their seven-game goal drought.

The Seagulls are still unlikely to be relegated – they sit four points clear of Cardiff with just two matches of the season remaining.

The hosts will be favourites to bounce back to winning ways in this game due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Brighton.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be comfortable – a 2-0 triumph for the North London side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Arsenal too are struggling for goals, they have just seven from their last seven matches making this among the best online betting odds for this round of fixtures, priced at 13/10 at 888Sport.

The Gunners are likely to make changes for this game as it falls in between the two legs of their Europa League semi-final against Valencia, with the German playmaker likely to be introduced. He scored in the recent home game against Crystal Palace and should be the man to unlock a deep-lying defence like Brighton’s. He’s 3/1 anytime at Unibet.
