Arsenal v Brighton Match Preview & Predicted Score for League Cup clash

Arsenal are set to take on Brighton in the League Cup this evening, with both sides in top form.

The visitors come into the tie on the back of consecutive victories, having beaten Chelsea by a surprise 4-1 scoreline, before beating Wolves at the Molineux 3-2 at the weekend.

We have the better form however after extending our winning run to three straight wins when beating the Blues also, maintaining our hold on top spot in the Premier League table, and with us currently amongst the favourites to win two trophies already this term, we will be hoping to maintain that positivity by going deep in the League Cup also, starting with today.

We will obviously not be taking Brighton too lightly, but with both sides likely to ring the changes to their starting line-ups, you would have to believe that we would be the better off given our impressive squad depth at present.

I feel like a nice 3-1 win could be on the cards, with Eddie Nketiah to get his first goal since scoring against Bodo/Glimt back on October 6. Gabriel Jesus could well feature at some point also, and hopefully he will add to his goal tally also by ending his current goal drought which stretches back to October 1 when we beat our noisy neighbours Tottenham.

What are your early predictions for today’s clash?

  1. As both sides are likely to rest key players, much will depend on the strength of the back up players introduced.If Brighton leave out Dunk and Webster for example, they will be seriously weakened , whereas we can bring in Cedric, Holding, Tomi(if fit) and Tierney who will be out to continue the good form he showed against Zurich.I would deploy Elneny as DM with Lokonga and Vieira in the more advanced midfield roles.Up front, Nelson,Nketiah and Marquinhos should start.Whatever team is chosen I expect a narrow win against a side which has my utmost respect.

  2. The English teams have been drawn with tough oppositions, this means it is likely that both Liverpool (against Realmadrid) and Man U ( against Barcelona) could be out of Europe very early. Even Chelsea against Dormond isn’t easy. These three teams without the involvement of European cups can have a go at the Premier league.

    We should be on top of issues once we come from the break.

  3. I do not care what anybody else Says, I really want us to play the kids in this game.

    If we win, great, but if we lose, I won’t lose any sleep over it.

    If we do win, I hope we continue playing the kids.

    We do not know who we will face when the Europa League restarts. It could be Barcelona.

    If it is, I would like to have our best team fit and available. So give our best eleven as much rest as we can after the WC.
