Arsenal will be aiming to bounce back from a disappointing Manchester city defeat when they travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Mikel Arteta’s team went down 3-0 at Manchester City on Wednesday, putting an end to their eight-match league unbeaten streak. They were also poor in that match failing to register a shot on target in 90minutes.
Brighton vs Arsenal latest odds
Nevertheless, they are 2.54 favourites with 1xbet to put the loss behind them by coming out on top in East Sussex.
However, the Seagulls have been a sort of buggy team for Arsenal recently winning two and lost none of the last four encounters with this opposition. They can be backed at 3.104 to claim maximum points yet again here which will be a historic double over the gunners.
Five of the hosts’ last seven fixtures in all competitions have resulted in draws with 2 draws in 3 home matches during this period, and there are odds of 3.34 on offer on them sharing the spoils once more in this one.
Brighton vs Arsenal team news
Aaron Connolly is available despite undergoing knee surgery since play was suspended, although Jose Izquierdo is out for the rest of the season.
This means Graham Potter may line up in a possible 4-4-2 formation as they battle the drop.
Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari joined Calum Chambers and Sokratis on the sidelines after going off injured at the Etihad Stadium in the loss against Manchester city, with David Luiz suspended following his red card in that match.
This means Rob Holding may pair Mustafi at centre back position with Bellerin and Tierney flanking them.
Brighton vs Arsenal preview
Despite waiting three months to see their side back in action, Gunners supporters must have wished the hiatus had never ended after a thoroughly disappointing display against the champions. They were thoroughly beaten and could have conceded more if not for Leno smart goalkeeping.
Their away performance is nothing to write home about as they have won just 2 matches out of a possible 14. This is bad for a team gunning for top 4.
Arteta will look to bring Martinelli, Pepe, and Ozil back into the team in order to produce some spark in attack.
Brighton vs Arsenal predictions
The horror show away at Etihad stadium is nothing to write home about and Arteta will want to change that in todays fixture. They face a Brighton side that claimed a massive victory at the Emirates and their is no better time to revenge than now.
Arsenal will look to dominate the game and create scoring opportunities to see off a win. The potential attack trio of Martinelli, Aubameyang, and Pepe should see them get a good result in this match.
Arsenal win or draw at odds 1.42 is great to back.
