The battle for the Premier League title continues this weekend, as Arsenal look to record a third straight victory. Brighton will be the visitors to the Emirates, as they bid to respond following last week’s no-show against Everton.
Before Betting On Arsenal vs Brighton
Arsenal remains in the title race this term, but it appears an uphill struggle for the Gunners to end their long wait for a top-flight title. However, all Mikel Arteta’s side can do is win their games, and hope that Man City slips up between now and the end of the season. Arsenal currently sits one points behind their championship rivals, but they have returned to form in recent weeks after winning their last two.
Arsenal’s home form has remained solid throughout the season, and that is evident from their previous six matches. Over that period at the Emirates, they have claimed five victories and one draw. Meanwhile, they have netted at least three goals in each of their six home matches. Only two sides have scored three or more over more consecutive home matches in the Premier League.
Brighton will be looking for an immediate return to form this weekend, as their European hopes were hit last week with a 5-1 home loss against Everton. That was a shocking defeat that few saw coming, but the Seagulls remain in a prominent position for a European finish.
It aids their chances this weekend that they have only lost back-to-back games in the Premier League on one occasion this season. But, on the road, Brighton has lost of their previous three. That is as many defeats as they had suffered in their previous ten on their travels. The Seagulls have also lost nine of their ten away games in the Premier League against sides sitting in the top two positions.

This is a testing match for the Gunners this weekend, as Brighton certainly look a side capable of creating chances against Arsenal. We can see both teams finding the net, but we would be surprised if Arsenal don’t manage to claim maximum points.
