Arsenal’s midweek game in Manchester was called off after a number of players were put into quarantine after Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis tested positive for coronavirus, with the Gunners recently exiting the Europa League to the Greek outfit.
However, those put into self-isolation have since tested negative for the virus, so it looks very much like this game will go ahead as planned.
Brighton head into this fixture in an extremely poor vein of form, as their last victory came as far back as last year when hosting one of the worst travellers in the league, Bournemouth.
Indeed, that’s 10 straight fixtures now across all competitions where they’ve come up short, though they still managed to draw six of these, including fixtures with Wolves, Sheffield Utd and Chelsea to name a few.
In fact, the Seagulls are a respectable W4-D6-L4 at Amex this term in league action and W10-D11-L12 since the start of last season, so they need to be respected when playing on the south coast.
Brighton And Arsenal To Draw
By contrast, the Gunners have been one of the worst travelling teams over that period, going W9-D12-L11 and they look plenty short in the outright market considering.
Of course, Mikel Arteta has come in and shaken things up for the better as they’ve now won three of four unbeaten matches on the road across all competitions, but as the saying goes you can’t teach an old dog new tricks that looks very prevalent in the Arsenal camp.
They’ve drawn their last five trips in the league and have just one win in 12 dating back to their trip to Anfield back in August.
The head-to-heads between these two certainly doesn’t favour the shorter-priced visitors either. Arsenal have lost two of four winless meetings with Brighton since the start of 2018, as two of the last three ended all square, and we’d be very surprised if this one swayed from that norm.
Only Wolves have drawn as many times as Arsenal’s 13 times this term, while Chris Potters’ charges are next in line with 11.
Under 2.5 Goals
Although the visitors are known for their extravagant attacking play, they have in fact seen a maximum of just two goals in seven of their last 10 league trips.
Meanwhile, Brighton have seen fewer than three strikes in eight of their last 10 home or away, as well as each of their past six at this stadium.
Moreover, when including the cups, the Gunners have registered three consecutive clean sheets, so the 0-0 or 1-1 certainly comes into play.
