On Saturday evening for a Premier League clash Brighton & Hove Albion will play against steadily improving Arsenal at the Amex Stadium. Last time out, the Seagulls earned a point against Crystal Palace towards the death, while Mikel Arteta’s side thrashed Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby. Here is everything you need to know about Brighton vs Arsenal football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
Yves Bissouma was unable to recover in time and the club is concerned about his availability against Arsenal.
After suffering a hamstring injury on Monday ex-Arsenal attacker Danny Welbeck is certain to miss the match against his former club.
Steven Alzate and Adam Webster are not anticipated to return until after the international break.
After sustaining knee ligament damage in last weekend’s 3-1 triumph over Tottenham Granit Xhaka will be out for at least three months.
Emile Smith Rowe or Martin Odegaard may drop deeper to cover for Xhaka’s absence with Nicolas Pepe or Alexandre Lacazette coming into the side.
On the other hand, Albert Sambi Lokonga is more likely to replace Xhaka in an otherwise unchanged Arsenal XI.
Brighton vs Arsenal prediction Prediction
In their first six Premier League games, Brighton has won four of them. Mikel Arteta now has his first-choice defense to call on, and Arsenal are looking much better after a poor start to Premier League.
On the South Coast, Arsenal hasn’t always had it their way, and Brighton’s impressive start to the season suggests that a memorable three points against the Gunners aren’t out of the question.
However, during the first 45 minutes of the North London derby, we witnessed Arsenal play some of their greatest football under Arteta, and if they can repeat that intensity and drive at the Amex, they should be able to grind out another hard-fought victory.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup: Sanchez; Dunk, Duffy, Burn; Veltman, Bissouma, Gross, Cucurella; Trossard, Connolly; Maupay
Arsenal possible starting lineup: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Lokonga, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang
