Brighton v Arsenal Build-up & Predicted Score with the chance to move into seventh

Arsenal have the chance to move up into seventh place in the Premier League with a win today, but it will be no easy to task to claim all three points against Brighton.

The Seagulls have been in fine form so far this season, racking up 13 points from their opening six matches, and missed out on the chance to move top of the table when failing beat Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Their only defeat thus far has come at home to Everton, another team who has started the term in form, and will definitely need to be taken seriously.

The Gunners can close to within a point of the aforementioned duo should they win today, having won and lost three each of their opening six matches, but come into this match on the back of four consecutive wins in all competitions.

We really came into our own when putting Tottenham Hotspur to the sword just last weekend, and having had a full week to prepare for the upcoming fixture, I struggle to believe that we wont be able to step-up to the challenge that Brighton will pose.

What will be interesting is the approach of Mikel Arteta, with him most likely to replace the injured Granit Xhaka with one of Lokonga or Odegaard in the middle, with the latter seemingly confirming a more positive approach to today’s matchup.

Our defence has really improved in recent weeks, with both summer signings Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu joining Gabriel Magalhaes and Kieran Tierney in a back-line worthy of fearing

    I wanna see Lacazette

  2. Reggie says:

    No reason at all why the run cant go to four wins. Brighton are good but dont process the clout we have with players. Their manager is vastly underated but he will do well to keep them in the Premier league this year, i think he will though.

  3. Lord Denning says:

    Just because this lineup worked against spuds doesn’t mean its the best Taveres can play in midfielder he’s a baller, martinelli or pepe on the wings. Coyg!

    1. John Andrews says:

      Always damn negative before games.dont you lot get tired

  4. Sean Williams says:

    I do rate this line up and think it’s our strongest. As long as they are positive and play ‘The Arsenal Style’ we should get a good result. Against the ‘North London Imposters’ last week ,we played the Arsenal way and won, let’s do it again today.

    1. Gurrosco says:

      Very similar to previous games. Perhaps it is fair time to realize this as our First 11.

    2. John Andrews says:

      Match unimpressive so far and partey giving the ball away in a dangerous position.

  5. Gurrosco says:

    How would you rate our chances of getting a clean sheet?

  6. lcebox says:

    2-0 to the Gunners..

    1. Perry ames says:

      Very poor so far only consolation is we must improve in the last hour but we look afraid to play

  7. sekman says:

    saka….

  8. Arsemirates says:

    It’s coming isn’t it. No good being up for against the Spuds, they should be up for it every game. Arteta needs to stick a rocket up there backsides at the break.

  9. SueP says:

    What a shile of pite that half was.

  10. David says:

    Fair play to Brighton, they have been very good so far. Auba has to hold the ball up better in the 2nd half to help Arsenal get up the pitch.

  11. peterhos says:

    No need to panic … yet. Hopefully a better improvement second half. Worrying that once again we seem to play second fiddle to a team who are not likely to end the season that high up the league.

  12. Sean says:

    Let Laca get involved, there are the sort of games he can hold the ball up and bring the guys into play… Smithrowr trying his best to push us, Saka has had a few moments!

    Øde off – Laca on

    Pepe also to make an appearance, Maybe Martinelli.

    Just win the game.

    1-0 to the Arsenal!!!

  13. Vlajko says:

    What is going on with their first touch!!??

  14. Perry ames says:

    Subs needed but what do I know coyg

  15. Gunners4life says:

    Brighton is controlling the game….

  16. Mickmematethemasterfarter says:

    Take pepe off rubbish, gabi on plz

  17. Mickmematethemasterfarter says:

    Saka how is he still on killing us

  18. Mickmematethemasterfarter says:

    Party wouldn’t pass water

  19. Vlajko says:

    So, what was the game plan, to park the bus and get a point? Miserable game, possibly of the worst I’ve seen. Not beeing able to make two passes all game… No Arteta for me
