Brighton vs Arsenal

Following a routine 2-0 win over Luton Town, Arsenal will be aiming to stay in the title race when they take on Brighton at Amex Stadium. Mikel Arteta rested several first-team regulars in the midweek triumph. But the Spanish tactician is going to field the best possible side against the Seagulls. All Declan Rice, Jorginho, and Gabriel Jesus should be recalled to the starting XI. While Bukayo Saka should recover in time to face Brighton.

The hosts, on the other hand, played out a boring goalless draw with Brentford in midweek to remain in the top half of the table. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Mikel Arteta is going to count on key players this time out. Danny Welbeck is widely expected to return to Brighton’s starting line-up, whilst all Billy Gilmour. Jack Hinshelwood, Kaoru Mitoma, and James Milner are sidelined with injuries. Talented attacker Evan Ferguson has overcome his injury.

Outright Betting

Despite avoiding defeat in 13 of their 14 Premier League home games this season. Brighton are big outsiders at 9/2 while the draw is an unfancied 7/2 with the same firm.

Arsenal are odds-on 8/13 favourites on JILI777 as they look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 11 matches.

Betting Angles

Here, I think Arsenal if anything are a tad short so I’m instead going to back the visitors on the Double Chance alongside Both Teams to Receive a Card and Pervis Estupinan To Commit a Foul at 4/5.

As already alluded to, the Gunners are in the midst of a 10-game unbeaten run at present and they will know the importance of earning three points on the south coast on Saturday evening.

Whilst Arsenal can ill-afford any slip-ups at the Amex. Brighton do hold a strong home record this season. So much so that I would rather get the added insurance of Arsenal avoiding defeat onside.

With an action-packed and competitive contest anticipated. I’ll also back referee John Brooks to brandish at least one card to both teams during this televised tussle.

Brighton vs Arsenal Prediction

In theory, Brighton might give Arsenal a game here. After all, they’ve lost just 1 of 14 league games on the home patch in this term of the Premier League. The reality is somewhat different, though.

Arsenal have been almost impeccable since the short winter break in January. The fact they won eight and drew one of the last nine league games speaks enough. Their players are as motivated as ever, being still in contention for the Premier League glory.

On the other side, Brighton lost four of the previous six matches across competitions. It is very hard to bet on anything other than Arsenal’s win here. The pick is paid at the 1.61 odds.

We will alternatively shoot for the Under 2.5 goals bet at the very attractive 2.37 odds. The main reason is both teams’ recent playing style. We’ve seen a total of one goal in Arsenal’s last two matches against Porto (a 1-0 win in extra-time) and Manchester City (a goalless stalemate).

Brighton have also been very tough to break down in their own backyard lately. The Seagulls allowed just two goals in the last five home matches in all competitions. Four of these five outings ended with fewer than three goals scored.
