Some juicy stats in Brighton vs Arsenal game handpicked for you

Arsenal will visit Brighton in their next match and after beating Chelsea at the weekend, the Gunners will hope to get another win at the Amex tomorrow.

The Seagulls have been tough opponents for Arsenal to beat recently, and a win for Gunners would show that their victory over the Blues wasn’t a fluke.

Ahead of the match, BBC Sport pointed out some interesting facts and stats and we have handpicked some of them for you.

Arsenal is a much bigger team when compared to Brighton, but the Gunners haven’t won a game against them at their home since 1981.

Brighton did the double over Arsenal for the first time last season with two 2-1 wins.

Arsenal has kept three league clean sheets this season, and they have all come on the road.

Losing their final game of a calendar year is one bad habit Arsenal has to get rid of. If they lose this game, they would have done that in three straight seasons.

Arsenal has played three games against teams below them on the league table and they have won two of those matches.

Brighton has won just a single league game at home this year, and that was their 2-1 win over Arsenal in June.

    OT.. Omg… Diego Costa!! Apparently we’re following developments closely..
    I hope this is a load of codswallop, as I can’t stand him!
    32 years of age – 3 year deal?!! 😖

    As a deep thinker I can see that certain stats, esp when relevant to recent form, CAN be of use and on occasions even “interesting”(to quote MARTIN). As that same deep thinker though, I can also see that historical stats are irrelevant and used as fillers for articles to attract non thinkers.
    Another “interesting” stat that will “amaze” some is that in every year this century we have had more rainfall in December than in September.Wow! That must mean something eh?
    I’ll say! WHAT it means is that almost all stats are a complete waste of time and effort, though SOME- and only when relevant and used properly- are useful.

    It’s going to be a tough game y’all. I will take a scappy win, a win is a win eh? 1981 is a long time to not fly over the seagulls at their backyard. COYG!
