A Brighton & Hove Albion that are struggling for wins host Arsenal on Saturday afternoon, as Mikel Arteta’s Gunners return to action after their postponed midweek fixture.
Arsenal are enjoying their best form under Mikel Arteta, exiting Europa at home to Olympiakos aside, and while they were far from their best last weekend, they still got the job done with a 1-0 victory over West Ham to make it three in a row in a league.
The Spaniard has only lost one league match as Gunners boss, and the team are currently enjoying the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League (eight games).
They were due to take on Manchester City in midweek, but it was postponed late on due to fears of coronavirus, but the latest word is this fixture is set to still go ahead as scheduled, and Arteta will be able to choose from a well-rested crop of players for this trip down to the South Coast, so expect top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (17 goals) to continue alongside the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil.
Brighton, meanwhile, are now ten games without a win in all competitions - nine in the league is the longest current run in the Premier League. However, they do have a good recent record against the Gunners, going unbeaten in four meetings since losing their first Premier League clash with them, back in October 2017.
Each of their last five games on home soil have featured less than three goals in total, with a pair of 1-0 defeats alongside three 1-1 draws. If last week’s goalless draw against Wolves is any indication, you can expect another tight match here with few chances at either end.
We recommend backing a draw here. The Seagulls have drawn four of their last five games, and only visitors Arsenal have drawn more games in total with 13 from 29.
