Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between Arsenal and Brighton.
  • Brighton have lost only one of their last five encounters with the Gunners.
  • Arsenal have dropped points in 11 of their last 16 home league games.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Brighton’s last three Premier League fixtures.

Arsenal aiming to secure continental qualification

Arsenal’s 2020/21 Premier League campaign has been one of disappointment and underperformance, though a late flourish has opened up a European qualification opportunity on the season’s final day on Sunday.

The Gunners – who have won four league games on the bounce – snatched three points at Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening thanks to two injury-time efforts, securing a vital 3-1 victory that keeps them in the hunt for seventh spot and a place in UEFA’s mysterious new tournament, the Conference League.

Mikel Arteta’s men need results in Tottenham’s clash with Leicester and Man City’s tussle with Everton to go their way on Sunday however, though beating a confident Brighton outfit will be a tough primary objective on its own.

Albion show their class

Many of Brighton’s slick-passing performances this season have gone unrewarded, though that certainly wasn’t the case in midweek when the Seagulls came from behind to beat champions Manchester City at the Amex Stadium.

Albion made full use of their one-man advantage after Joao Cancelo was sent off for the visitors, roaring to a 3-2 comeback win in front of the buoyant returning supporters on the south coast.

Brighton have now lost just three times in their last ten league assignments and they will land in the capital on Sunday armed with plenty of self-belief.

Tricky test for Arsenal

A win on Sunday is vital for Arsenal in their pursuit of European football, though we have already seen on numerous occasions this season that the Gunners tend to struggle when the pressure is on.

In front of an expectant crowd at The Emirates Stadium, where they have won only once in their last seven attempts, Arsenal could really feel the squeeze and a Brighton team playing with confidence could take advantage.

Albion have avoided defeat in five of their last six meetings with Arsenal and they have pocketed four points from their last two visits to the red half of North London.

Both teams found the net in each of those fixtures – indeed, goals were plundered at both ends in five of the clubs’ last six tussles – and the same market appeals for Sunday.

Our 1-1 correct score prediction tips Albion to frustrate their hosts on the campaign’s final day. Arsenal have dropped points in 11 of their last 16 Premier League home games and they could suffer in North London again.

Arsenal injuries and team news

Martin Odegaard should return to the team in what could prove to be his final game for Arsenal. David Luiz is leaving this summer and Hector Bellerin could follow him out of the club and both players are major doubts here.

Brighton injuries and team news

Solly March and Tariq Lamptey will both miss out again for Brighton while Danny Welbeck is also injured and won’t face his former employers. Neal Maupay is suspended, though skipper Lewis Dunk is back having served his ban.
