Brighton vs Arsenal Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Arsenal are set to continue their resurgence at the Amex Stadium in an English Premier League fixture against Brighton. The Gunners were on the rise before the break but their poor defence means goals are on the menu in this clash.

Brighton Form


Brighton did well to earn a 0-0 draw at Wolves in their previous Premier League fixture. They were organised at the back and looked lively going forward, finishing with seven attempts on goal.

The Seagulls are still seeking their first win of 2020 having played 10 matches this year. Graham Potter’s men suffered a 3-1 defeat at Everton in that run and were also beaten 1-0 at home by Crystal Palace and Championship team Sheffield Wednesday.

Brighton’s progressive style has earned a lot of plaudits but defending has been a problem. They have kept just two clean sheets in their last 19 matches in all competitions.

Brighton News


Winger Jose Izquierdo remains the only injury absentee for Brighton ahead of Saturday’s match. Pascal Gross is in contention to start after sitting out the draw at Wolves.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal were on the rise before the break having claimed five wins in their last six matches. They beat a number of teams in the bottom half of the table in that run, including a 4-0 victory over Newcastle and a 1-0 triumph against West Ham.

The Gunners are well off the pace in the top four race and need to keep winning to maintain their pursuit of Champions League football. 

Mikel Arteta’s men have been plagued by defensive problems throughout the season and have conceded in 10 of their last 15 Premier League matches. 

Arsenal took on Manchester City at the Etihad on Wednesday and lost 3-0. David Luiz had a shocker, making an error that led to City's opener and conceding a penalty that resulted in a red card for the Brazilian defender.

Arsenal News


Centre back is an issue with David Luiz suspended, Sokratis doubtful with Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers injured. Full back Cedric Soares and defensive midfielder Granit Xhaka are injured.

Mikel Arteta dropped Mesut Ozil from the squad against Man City. Forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe will hope to start in Brighton.

Left back Kieran Tierney is likely to sit this one out with Bukayo Saka his replacement.

Brighton vs Arsenal Head to Head


Arsenal have an 8-4 advantage with three draws from 15 previous matches against Brighton.

Brighton vs Arsenal Match Up 


Brighton’s defensive problems are evident having failed to keep a clean sheet in 17 of their last 19 matches. They often attempt to balance things out at the other end of the pitch, particularly with Neal Maupay who was on target in the reverse fixture. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be the one to watch for Arsenal having scored 17 Premier League goals this season. He has a good understanding with Alexandre Lacazette and they should trouble the Brighton defence.
