They are facing the Emirates Stadium in London, the formation led by Àrsene Wenger, Arsenal, and the visitors training, led by Chris Hughton, Brighton,
in what will be the third time that both formations have faced, being that the Arsenal always triumphed before the equipment of the Southwest of the United Kingdom.
On the side of the Gunners, Alex Iwobi, Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin and Calum Chambers,
while on the side of Hughton’s team, Steve Sidwell, Beram Kayal, Glenn Murray, Sam Baldock and Tommer Herned are confirmed casualties for this match in London.
The Wenger-oriented team, after a somewhat inconsistent start to the season, seems to have entered a more consistent phase of results,
adding a series of six consecutive matches without adding defeats, being that six of these finished with triumphs of the places
(although only two of these matches have been held out of doors, an important point to note). In the league table, the “Gunners” are in the seventh position with 10 points added.
As for the Brighto, to the beginning of season also something alternating,
has managed to rise in the league table over the last few games, winning important victories against teams that are direct opponents in the fight for the maintenance in the competition.
Still, they have one of the worst records to play away from home, scoring just one point in nine chances and only scoring a goal against Bournemouth.
At the entrance to this match, the team adds 7 points and is in 14th place in the leaderboard.
Prognosis Arsenal vs Brighton:
Brighton are a team that has a coach who is looking to put his teams in a defensively consistent football, especially when playing against the biggest clubs in England,
I think this match could be tricky for Arsenal if it does not score relatively early (and if the visitors are concentrated, I think it will be a long time coming).
Anyway, being Arsenal a very strong team in their field, even if they make a less successful game,
which may be natural after the wear and tear of the Europa League, I believe it triumphs but by a shorter margin.
