Brighton v Arsenal Match Preview & Predicted Score

Arsenal will make the short trip to Brighton for today’s Premier League clash, as they look to continue with their upturn in fortunes.

The Gunners have been in torrid form in the last two months, but put that to bed with a resounding 3-1 demolition of Chelsea on Boxing Day, and will be keen to kick on now.

That win was their first win in eight Premier League matches, with five devastating losses in that time also.

Brighton come into the clash with only one win from their last 13 PL matches, or two from all 15 league meetings so far this season, and interestingly have failed to win any of the fixtures in their home stadium where today’s clash will take place. They have earned four draws from their last five at the AmEx however.

I’d hate to get ahead of ourselves given our inconsistencies in recent, but this is very much a match that we should be winning, even if we weren’t to bring our very best, and I can’t help but take some confidence from our win over Chelsea.

I predicted that we could get that result against our London rivals, so naturally I feel like this is very much a win that should be achieved, and I’m going with a 2-1 win this evening.

What are your predictions for today’s meeting with Brighton? Was the win on Boxing Day enough to build the confidence for this tie?

    Mikel Arteta says he has had to adapt his tactical approach “much more” than he expected since taking over as Arsenal boss, due to the composition of his squad.

    No brainer buddy! We said it for months so better late than never.

    One more request please. Stop barking constantly at the players, sit down and relax.

    I put 2-1 to us in the predictor post earlier but today’s game could be far harder than against Chelsea. Brighton are high tempo and they have Welbeck playing!

    So we have 3 players out with covid related problems (Ist teamers aswell ) how many do we need until the match maybe cancelled?
    Man City last night had this happen ,does anyone know the numbers we are talking about before this happens because for me that as put us at a massive disadvantage of losing nearly 25% of your starting 11

    1. Declan says:

      Dan, Gabriel is the only player who has tested positive for Covid. Willian and Luiz tested negative and will be back with the squad Friday, not that I want to see those two in the first team.
      City have two players and two staff members positive.

    Brighton and Hove Albion 1 – Arsenal 3
    I know we have not had a decent result against them in a while but everything comes to an end.
    We are truly motivated to get away from the drop zone and with the hope that our result against Chelsea has lifted a lot of gloom, we will do well because we have always done well whenever we want or feel motivated enough to.
    Shut them up GOONERS

    Surely I am not the only one who noticed that we had an extra days rest than Brighton? They had ONLY two days, which will cause them more fatigue in the latter stages of the game. With a smaller squad of players, they will feel the effects more than we will, who had three days. Big difference between two and three days rest. 2-1 to us!
