Brighton v Arsenal Betting Tips & Predictions

Arsenal maintained their five-point lead atop the Premier League with a comfortable win against West Ham. 

They now face a Brighton side which has won three of its last four and has already produced results against some of the big six.

The hosts are missing sought-after midfielder Moises Caicedo for this match through suspension. 

Alexis Mac Allister is still unavailable after winning the World Cup with Argentina and Danny Welbeck is doubtful. Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson are the only confirmed absentees for the Gunners. 

Double Chance: Brighton Or Draw

3/4 (Unibet)

Arsenal have had to ride their luck at times away from home. While that is inevitable in a long season, their performances have not necessarily matched the results. 

Brighton are unlucky to only have 11 points from seven home matches.

With just six conceded in those fixtures and heavy wins against Chelsea and Leicester, Roberto De Zerbi’s team are great value to avoid defeat despite Arsenal’s stellar first half of the campaign. 

Total Cards: Under 3.5

Evens (Bet365)

Anthony Taylor takes charge of this match, and has averaged around 3.5 yellows per match since the start of last season. 

Both of these teams tend to stay out of trouble with the officials, ranking well-below average by cards received per match.

Brighton make a lot of tackles, with a few fouls inevitably following, but their style of play doesn’t tend to nudge the referee towards his notebook. 

Anytime Goalscorer: Eddie Nketiah

13/5 (William Hill)

He might be a downgrade from Gabriel Jesus, and he might not be the flashiest player in this Arsenal squad, but Eddie Nketiah is a proven goalscorer. 

The 23-year-old found the net in the win over West Ham to make it four goals for the campaign in eight starts.

His movement is sharp, and he’s a good finisher. With the creative talent around him, Nketiah is bound to have some good goal scoring opportunities here.
