In the last 5 encounters, the results of both teams are quite equal when each side won 2 and 1 time was undefeated.
The home team will not have the service of many key players in the upcoming match.
The duo Jakub Moder and Adam Webster will both miss this encounter due to injury. In addition, Brighton will also be without the service of World Cup champion – Alexis Mac Allister.
Notably, Moises Caicedo was also unable to play because of a suspension. While Danny Welbeck’s ability is still a question mark.
Two factors in attack, Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson, will still need time to recover. But Gunners fans are hoping for the return of the Emile Smith Rowe duo alongside Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Smith Rowe has been sidelined for a long time while undergoing surgery, he has now started training again and will also be available for the upcoming match.
Meanwhile, Tomiyasu, after having physical problems, also returned to training.
With Welbeck still undecided on his ability to play, the biggest hope in Brighton’s attack will rest on Leandro Trossard, who has been in impressive form this season with 7 goals and 3 assists in 15 games at home. Premier League.
As usual, the trio of Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard will still be the names responsible for scoring and bringing back 3 points for the Gunners.
Brighton had lost both matches before the World Cup, including defeat at the Carabao Cup arena. But they came back strong during the gift-giving holiday when they won all 3 points against Southampton.
On the other side of the line, Arsenal continues to write their own dreams when marking their 13th victory in 15 EPL matches after a classy comeback against West Ham. However, every time they encounter Brighton, they often have a bad result.
In the last 2 confrontations, the Gunners received bitter fruits against this opponent. Therefore, the upcoming match may be a big test for Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students.
However, Arsenal is still being appreciated this season, especially when they have an even squad with a good combination of each link. While Brighton lacks the key player Moises Caicedo, this may cause the home team to lack a plan to intercept and deploy the ball quickly in the middle.
Therefore, the Gunners will probably win the trip to Falmer Stadium.
Prediction: Brighton 1-2 Arsenal
