Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion match preview

Will Arsenal keep their fading title hopes alive?

Last weekend, the Gunners enjoyed one of their most impressive victories of the entire season, beating Newcastle 2-0 at St James’ Park.

Martin Ødegaard broke the deadlock with a long-range strike, before Gabriel Martinelli provoked an own goal that sealed the points.

That’s now back-to-back wins for Mikel Arteta’s team, who were winless in four just before that, relinquishing top spot to Man City during this period.

So, Arsenal start the day one point below the leaders, having played a game more.

After this, the Gunners visit Nottingham Forest and then host Wolves, needing to win all of their games and hope the leaders slip up twice.

This is undoubtedly Arsenal’s toughest remaining fixture but, having won 13 of 17 Premier League home games so far this season, they’ll be confident of claiming all three points.

Brighton & Hove Albion meantime need the points as they seek to qualify for Europe for the first time in their entire history.

On Monday evening, the Seagulls’ top seven hopes suffered a real blow, smashed 5-1 by Everton at the Amex, a result literally no one could’ve seen coming.

Four days earlier, Roberto De Zerbi’s team beat Manchester United at home, with Alexis Mac Allister’s 99th minute penalty snatching the win.

Nevertheless, Brighton remain eighth, two points below both Aston Villa and Spurs, having played three games less than both.

After this, the Seagulls face Newcastle (A), Southampton (H), Man City (H) and Aston Villa (A), with Arsenal fans certainly hoping for a favour on 24 May.

There are some tough fixtures in there, so every point counts as De Zerbi’s side seek to overtake Spurs or Villa.

Since August 2021, only three away teams have won at the Emirates in any competitions.

They are Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton, all of whom have claimed two victories there in this period.

The Seagulls were victorious 2-1 in North London 13 months ago, before claiming a 3-1 victory in the Carabao Cup back in November.

So, can Brighton end Arsenal’s dreams of winning the title, or will the Gunners keep the race going for another week?

Arsenal team news

It’s been reported this week that Oleksandr Zinchenko will miss the rest of this season, joining William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu in the treatment room.

So, Kieran Tierney will come in, with Jakub Kiwior starting a third successive match at centre-back.

Similarly, in midfield, Jorginho has been excellent in recent wins over Chelsea and Newcastle, so will continue at the base of midfield, chosen over out-of-form Thomas Partey.

If Leandro Trossard is going to feature against the club he left in January, it’ll be from the bench.

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ramsdale; White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Tierney; Jorginho, Xhaka, Ødegaard; Saka, Martinelli; Jesus.

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

Roberto De Zerbi confirmed this week that he’ll be without centre-back Adam Webster and winger Solly March, both of whom are massive blows.

So, Levi Colwill will partner Lewis Dunk at the back, while teenager Facundo Buonanotte will attempt to fill March’s void out-wide.

In goal, Jason Steele had a bit of a nightmare on Monday, scoring an own goal, so don’t be surprised if Robert Sánchez returns.

Evan Ferguson, who came off the bench against Everton, could lead the line, displacing former Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Sánchez; Groß, Dunk, Colwill, Estupiñán; Gilmour, Caicedo, Mac Allister, Buonanotte, Mitoma; Ferguson.
