Arsenal vs Brighton Match Preview
Arsenal are in a fight to qualify for next year’s Champions League on two separate fronts at the moment. The Gunners currently occupy fifth place in the Premier League table but with time running out to overtake either of their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea, who currently sit in third and fourth respectively, but after Thursday night’s Europa League win over Valencia they have one foot in the final of that competition.
That 3-1 comeback victory against his former club will have come as a massive relief for Unai Emery as it came on the back of a three-game losing streak that had seen them drop nine vital points in defeats to Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Can they pick up three points in this game to keep the pressure on the top four or perhaps even overtaken one of them at odds of 2/5 with William Hill.
Brighton & Hove Albion are still not safe from relegation. With just two games remaining, they’re the only team that remain catchable for 18th placed Cardiff City, who currently occupy that final demotion spot with just two games left, with a four point gap separating the two sides at the moment, but with games against Arsenal and Manchester City coming up the Seagulls have a lot of work to do to confirm their safety.
Having been better in the early stages of the season and particularly in front of their own fans, Chris Hughton’s men have really struggled in the latter months of the campaign and they make the trip to the capital on Sunday afternoon on the back of a nine game winless streak in all competitions. Last weekend’s point at Hughton’s former club Newcastle could prove to be pivotal whilst three here at 15/2 with PaddyPower will confirm safety.
