Arsenal vs Brighton Preview:

Title contenders Arsenal welcome the high-flying Seagulls at the Emirates with the league title potentially being wrapped up if results don’t go the Gunners’ way. Mikel Arteta’s men kept their title hopes alive after a well-deserved 2-0 victory over Newcastle. Manchester City currently sit top of the table, one point ahead of Arsenal with a game in hand – Arteta’s men however have it in their own hands to keep Pep’s side pushing and possibly forcing a slip-up from the reigning champions. Irrespective of their league position finish, Arsenal have had more than an overwhelming campaign, being top for the majority of the season. The Gunners ended their four-game winless run with victories against Chelsea and Newcastle, as they aim to make it three in a row at the Emirates. Arsenal have struggled defensively lately and the clean sheet at St. James’ Park was their first in nine matches. However, with the third-best home record in the division, Arsenal fans will be hoping for a positive result on Sunday. The Gunners enter this matchup on a 17-game scoring streak as well, having scored 14 goals in their last 4 home matches as they next face a Brighton side who shipped 5 goals to the league’s lowest scorers Everton last weekend.

Brighton on the other hand enter this game on the back of a 5-1 mauling to Everton who boosted their survival hopes at the expense of the Seagulls. This result came following convincing victories over the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United. De Zerbi’s side currently sits eighth in the table with three games in hand over the likes of Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspurs. The Seagulls have the fourth-best away record this campaign in the Premier League having won 25 points in 16 matches and scoring in 11 consecutive trips. However, clean sheets have been hard to come by for De Zerbi’s men on the road, keeping their opponents out on just two occasions. The last two trips to the Emirates have seen the Seagulls prevail victorious and with both teams scoring goals for fun, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a high-scoring encounter on Sunday.
