We look at a few stats to predict the game.
Graham Potter’s Brighton have had a dream start to the season with 13 points from six matches, currently sitting on sixth in the league just because of a low goal difference. Brighton were always a great side to watch because of their attractive football, but have definitely improved in a drastic way and it is totally visible. They had a chance of going to the top of the table last weekend but a draw against Palace kept them one point behind league leaders Liverpool. With four wins in six games, the Seagulls would love to defeat Arsenal on their way to the top.
With eight goals scored and five conceded, they have been a very compact side. They have snatched victory at the 90th minute against Brentford and last week took a point away from Palace in the injury time. Their intensity in the matches have been unmatchable.
Brighton have been clinical in front of goal than ever before with 25 shots on target from a total of 65 attempts. Neal Maupay has been the highest scorer with four goals.
Arsenal are high on confidence now, more than ever. They have changed their fortune in the league with three back to back wins and climbed up to 10th in the league with nine points now. The Gunners come into the match on the back of a huge victory in the North London Derby.
With 23 shots on target from 78 shots, they are just neck to neck with Brighton. Arsenal have now scored five goals in the league, they have conceded 10 goals but only one of them have come in the last three matches. Aubameyang leads the chart with the most goals in the team with two. Arsenal would want their main man to be on song if they are to defeat Brighton on Saturday.
Gunners love to be in possession and play passes near the opposition penalty area , trying to create chances and it is going to be a great battle as Brighton just lets the opposition play nine passes on average before challenging for the ball in their half, their low ppda being the proof. While Brighton look to press a lot more intensely , Arsenal does let the opposition play a lot more passes before trying to win the ball back. This might prove to be dangerous against the Seagulls who have rarely failed to take their chances this season. An intense battle is up for all fans to witness tomorrow.
While Yves Bissouma looks set to return, Adam Webster will miss the game against Arsenal. Steven Alzate and former Arsenal man, Danny Welbeck are unlikely to feature as well.
Granit Xhaka has been ruled out with a knee injury while Mikel Arteta all other players available to choose from.
An intense 2-2 draw is our prediction.
Brighton(3-4-1-2) : Sanchez, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Cucurella, Bissouma, Gross, Veltman, Connolly, Maupay, Trossard.
Arsenal (4-2-3-1) : Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Lokonga, Partey, Smith-Rowe, Odegaard, Saka, Aubameyang.
