Brighton v Arsenal Betting Tips

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. 

All prices correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

    Neal Maupay struck a dramatic injury-time winner as relegation-threatened Brighton boosted their Premier League survival hopes by completing a first league double over Arsenal.

    Maupay, who scored the winner at the Emirates Stadium in December, calmly lifted the ball over substitute Gunners goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez deep into added time to repeat the 2-1 scoreline and secure Albion’s maiden success of 2020.

    Nicolas Pepe’s superb second-half strike had put the visitors on course for a much-needed victory in their pursuit of European qualification but Seagulls captain Lewis Dunk quickly scrambled an equaliser.

    A miserable day in the south-coast sunshine for Mikel Arteta’s men was compounded by a serious-looking knee injury suffered by first-choice keeper Bernd Leno.

    Germany international Leno was carried off on a stretcher shortly before half-time having been left writhing in agony after falling following a nudge from Frenchman Maupay.

    The Seagulls’ overdue win – their first since December 28 – puts distance between them and the bottom three ahead of a daunting run of fixtures against Leicester, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.

    Arteta’s side travelled south with a point to prove following a midweek mauling at Manchester City. They initially showed no ill effects of that 3-0 loss with a fast-paced start which almost brought an early breakthrough.

    Bukayo Saka, searching for his maiden Premier League goal, rattled the crossbar of stranded Seagulls goalkeeper Mat Ryan inside eight minutes, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang twice threatened and only a well-timed block from Dunk denied Alexandre Lacazette.

    Attacking duo Lacazette and Pepe had been recalled as part of five changes by the visitors, who lost Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari to injury and David Luiz to suspension three days ago, while Mesut Ozil was afforded a place on the bench.

    The hosts were in action for the first time in 105 days and originally appeared slightly rustier than their opponents as they struggled to create in the absence of a vocal home support, which had been partly replaced by a host of cardboard cutouts.

    After stunning a Gunners side under the caretaker management of Freddie Ljungberg late last year, Albion had won only once in 15 fixtures in all competitions and not tasted success since the turn of the year.

    Just after the half-hour mark, they were indebted to keeper Ryan as he impressively clawed away a goal-bound diving header from Lacazette following a Saka cross.

    Arsenal’s growing momentum was soon disrupted though as they lost Leno.

    Substitute Martinez was called into immediate action to stop a thunderous low drive from Aaron Mooy as Brighton registered a first attempt on target shortly a goalless first half was brought to an end.

    Gunners top scorer Aubameyang, seeking his 50th Premier League goal, twice tested Ryan in the second period, either side of correctly having a cool finish chalked off by an offside flag and subsequent VAR check.

    Moments after Ezequiel Schelotto headed straight at Martinez, the away side deservedly edged ahead thanks to only Pepe’s fifth league goal since his £72million transfer from Lille.

    The Ivorian collected the ball wide on the right, switched the ball to his left foot before curling a delightful strike into the top left corner.

    Given the hosts lack of attacking threat, Arsenal looked well place to see the game out.

    Yet they were made to pay as centre-back Dunk poked home from close range 15 minutes from time following a right-wing corner.

    On the balance of play, Albion may have been content with a single point but they finished with all three after Maupay coolly lifted the ball over Martinez five minutes into stoppage time.
