Brighton vs Arsenal Betting Tips & Preview - Arsenal bid to bounce back at Brighton

  • Arsenal have won 5 of their last 6 matches
Brighton vs Arsenal

Arsenal are set to continue their resurgence at the Amex Stadium in an English Premier League fixture against Brighton. The Gunners were on the rise before the break but their poor defence means goals are on the menu in this clash.

Brighton Form


Brighton did well to earn a 0-0 draw at Wolves in their previous Premier League fixture. They were organised at the back and looked lively going forward, finishing with seven attempts on goal.

The Seagulls are still seeking their first win of 2020 having played 10 matches this year. Graham Potter’s men suffered a 3-1 defeat at Everton in that run and were also beaten 1-0 at home by Crystal Palace and Championship team Sheffield Wednesday.

Brighton’s progressive style has earned a lot of plaudits but defending has been a problem. They have kept just two clean sheets in their last 19 matches in all competitions.

Brighton News


Winger Jose Izquierdo remains the only injury absentee for Brighton ahead of Saturday’s match. Pascal Gross is in contention to start after sitting out the draw at Wolves.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal were on the rise before the break having claimed five wins in their last six matches. They beat a number of teams in the bottom half of the table in that run, including a 4-0 victory over Newcastle and a 1-0 triumph against West Ham.

The Gunners are well off the pace in the top four race and need to keep winning to maintain their pursuit of Champions League football. 

Mikel Arteta’s men have been plagued by defensive problems throughout the season and have conceded in 10 of their last 15 Premier League matches.

Brighton vs Arsenal Match Up 


Brighton’s defensive problems are evident having failed to keep a clean sheet in 17 of their last 19 matches. They often attempt to balance things out at the other end of the pitch, particularly with Neal Maupay who was on target in the reverse fixture. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be the one to watch for Arsenal having scored 17 Premier League goals this season. He has a good understanding with Alexandre Lacazette and they should trouble the Brighton defence.
