BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Arsenal vs

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, in what is a must-win for the hosts if they want any chance of Europa League next season. 

ARSENAL

The Gunners have turned a corner with their form but it’s far too late in the season. They have won their last four games, beating Crystal Palace 3-1 last time out.

The team from north London are ninth-place in the Premier League table and two points behind Spurs in seventh place. For them to get into the Europa League, they need to win and Everton and Spurs need to lose.

Arsenal are in good form and will be confident of winning. Pepe is starting to show the player Arsenal thought he would be when they spent £70 million on him. We expect Arsenal to be at it from the first minute. Their defence haven’t kept many clean sheets this season and will need more than one goal in this game.

BRIGHTON

The Seagulls are safe in the Premier League for another season and welcomed home the fans midweek with a fantastic win. They beat Man City 3-2 after going 2-0 down.

They are currently 16th in the table with a win potentially taking them to 13th in the table. Their manager plays a very attacking style of football and has been linked with the vacant job at Spurs.

Against Arsenal, they will set up in a 352 formation again. They are a tough side to beat on their day but will have it all to do against an Arsenal side fighting for something.

Team News

For Arsenal, Bellerin and Luiz are the only doubts.

Welbeck, Propper, Veltman, March and Lamptey are out. Maupay is suspended.

Match Prediction

Arsenal are in good form in the Premier League and we are backing them to get a fifth win in a row.

Odds 8/13
