Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal registered a convincing 3-1 home win over Spanish club, Valencia, during the week in their 1st leg semi-final of the Europa League, but it’s back to domestic action for The Gunners who have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in the Premier League.

Recent defeats to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester City have prevented Unai Emery’s side from already occupying a top four position in the top flight and still trail London rivals, Chelsea, by two points ahead of this clash with Brighton.

Arsenal’s job may have been made a little easier as Cardiff City’s relegation was confirmed in yesterday’s loss to Crystal Palace, making Brighton possibly easier opponents, but the hosts still need to balance a potential Europa League cup final appearance with ensuring Champions League football for next season.

Arsenal possess a decent home record which stands at 14-2-2 41/15 and although they lost 3-2 to Crystal Palace last time out, The Gunners had previously recorded 10 wins on the trot – but they’ve won by 3+ clear goals in just 2 of these 18 home matches to date.

Brighton Prediction

Ironically, it was Brighton’s fierce rivals, Crystal Palace, which handed The Seagulls a massive favour when they recorded a 3-2 win away at Cardiff City yesterday which sealed Cardiff’s relegation fate, and Brighton can now make the trip to Arsenal with a huge weight lifted off their shoulders with Premier League safety now guaranteed.

This is just as well for the visitors have have now gone 7 matches without a win in the top flight, and gaining just 2 points from the possible 21 on offer following draws with Wolves (away 0-0) and Newcastle United (1-1 at home).

Brighton’s away record reads a poor 3-3-12 15/31 on the road so far this season as they’ve collected just one win on their travels out of their last 10 matches, but this doesn’t concern us for this pick.

The Seagulls have lost by a 3+ goal margin in just 1 of their 18 away matches this season and that was a 3-0 loss away at Chelsea, and I’m tipping the visitors can keep it close against an Arsenal outfit with perhaps one eye on their upcoming 2nd leg against Valencia.


Key-Facts – Arsenal v Brighton

  • Arsenal have won by 3+ clear goals in just 2 of these 18 home matches to date
  • Brighton are unbeaten in their last 2 meetings against Arsenal
  • Brighton have lost by a 3+ goal margin in just 1 of their 18 away matches


Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal are still fighting on two fronts while Brighton are relaxed knowing they’re safe for another season.
