Brighton & Hove Albion vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4 March 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium (Falmer).
Arsenal continued to sink on Thursday evening when they’ve once again gotten demolished by Manchester City. The Citizens have picked up consecutive wins with the 0-3 scoreline in just four days against the Gunners who are now miles away from the top-four finish in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger now only has Europa League as a potential way to save another dreadful season, but Arsenal will have a very challenging task in that competition as well since the last 16 round draw gave them red-hot Milan side as the opposition.
Next up for the Gunners are Brighton & Hove Albion and we would not be surprised to see the Gunners continue their horrendous streak at The American Express Community Stadium. The recently-promoted side has been quite prolific in front of the home crowd lately nettings even goals in back-to-back wins over Coventry City (3-1 in the FA Cup) and Swansea City (4-1 in the Premier League).
Glenn Murray has been the standout performer for the hosts in these wins and the English striker will come into this clash high on confidence after bagging five goals in last five games for the Seagulls. Knowing how vulnerable Arsenal’s defense has been throughout the entire season and particularly on the road, we’d just not be surprised to see Murray maintain his hot run of form and score at least once against the top half opposition here.
Arsenal have been struggling badly on their most recent travels in the league losing three on the bounce ahead of the trip to Falmer.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Arsenal: Prediction
The H2H wins will count for little for Arsenal here as the momentum is entirely on Brighton’s side.
We just have to notice the massive value in backing the Seagulls to avoid a defeat in front of the home crowd at the odds of 1.90.
