Arsenal vs Brighton prediction comes before the 15th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Thursday, December 5th, at the Emirates Stadium in London, England. In this match preview, we bring you some useful betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two.
Arsenal vs Brighton Betting Tips
Unai Emeri has been sacked last week and the new caretake manager is Fredrik Ljungberg. His tenure started badly as this weekend Arsenal failed to beat the newly-promoted Norwich. The final score was 2:2 after Arsenal were 2:1 down at the half time, which shows that the managerial change hasn’t made too much of an impact on this team’s play. The situation seems to be pretty much the same as before.
In that game, Ljungberg used pretty much the same formation as his predecessor, although he decided to pull Aubameyang a bit behind. You would think that this move was brilliant considering that Aubameyang scored both Arsenal goals in that game. But, both of the goals he scored came after set-pieces.
The fact that Arsenal failed to score from a planned attacking action is what makes their fans worry a lot ahead of the clash with Brighton. In fact, some of them are so suspicious of Ljungberg’s managerial abilities that they’ve started a ‘Freddy Out’ campaign. Of course, he’ll probably be out once Arsenal board of directors decides on the new permanent manager. But, that surely won’t happen before Thursday, meaning that the Swede will have to lead the Gunners against Brighton.
What’s giving Arsenal supporters some hope ahead of this game is that they’re playing against a team that’s been fairly disastrous lately. Brighton have lost three Premier League games in a row. To be fair to them, they played against some pretty heavyweight teams, namely Manchester United, Leicester, and Liverpool.
Brighton are looking to put an end to their losing streak and getting a point in London would definitely be a big success for them. That’s why many punters assume that they’re going to defend with all they got on Thursday evening. Still, that might not be the case this time. This team can smell blood and they want to take advantage of Arsenal’s poor form. Even though they’ve scored very little goals this season, they will probably want to try to score as many as possible against the Gunners. And that shouldn’t be such a problem considering that Arsenal are having a lot of injury troubles at the back.

Arsenal Form and Latest News
The Gunners have been in a poor form for a while and you can’t blame only the managers for that. It’s also because the atmosphere in the locker-room is not that good. Plus, some players like Xhaka are having beef with fans. And on top of everything, their defense is decimated with injuries. Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Mustafi – they’re all out due to injuries.
Brighton Form and Latest News
They’re the second-worst team in the Premier League when away performances are concerned. They’re also very poor in the attack, with only 16 goals score so far. And the main reason for that is that they tend to play very defensively when faced with stronger teams. Although in normal circumstances, they would defend ferociously against Arsenal at the Emirates, this time, they might decide to attack and hit the Gunners while they’re down.
