Arsenal will hope to keep up with Manchester City when they host Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Sunday.

Having only recently led the table, Arsenal could go into this game four points behind Man City who take on Everton just before kick-off at the Emirates. It’s a downfall somewhat of Arsenal’s own doing as they embarked on a four-game winless draw which included three draws — all of which had Arsenal leading by two goals — and a 4-1 defeat to Man City.

Even if Man City were to drop points against Everton, Arsenal still wouldn’t be able to take control, as Pep Guardiola’s side do have a game in hand, however, anything but a victory for Arsenal will surely end their title hopes.

Brighton, meanwhile, are fighting for Europa League qualification and have games in hand on all the teams around them, but suffered a blow on Monday. Hosting relegation-battling Everton at the Amex, no one would have expected Brighton to be on the wrong end of a 5-1 scoreline, keeping them eighth.

Arsenal team news

William Saliba remains sidelined for Arsenal with a back injury and is yet to return to training, so won’t be back in action for a bit. Rob Holding and Jakub Kiwior have shared the responsibilities of partnering Gabriel at centre-back, and the Polish defender appears to have found favour with Mikel Arteta in recent matches.

Also out for Arsenal are Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasu, with the latter out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury in March.

Solly March suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat to Everton on Monday and Roberto De Zerbi is now waiting to find out the extent of the problem. It’s a period of struggle for Brighton with regards to injuries as the Seagulls are also missing Tariq Lamptey, Joel Veltman, Adam Lallana, Jeremy Sarmiento and Jakub Moder — with the latter having been out since the start of the season.

Arsenal v Brighton: What’s being said?

Despite Arsenal’s rocky form as a whole, going four consecutive matches without a win in the Premier League, one man the Gunners have been able to rely on is Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian midfielder has scored five goals in his past four Premier League games, including a brace against Chelsea, to take his total tally for the season to 15.

Including assists, only six players have been directly involved in more goals this season than Odegaard’s 22 – though that obviously includes Erling Haaland who has scored more goals than anyone else has managed contributions. One goal contribution ahead of Odegaard is Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne, and Jamie Carragher believes the Norwegian is of similar importance to his Arsenal side as Guardiola’s midfield maestro.

“They were hugely impressive, I think it was a game people felt that would end this title race and put Man City in even more of a pole position,” Carragher said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“This man Odegaard gets a goal in a captain’s performance. He is Arsenal’s Kevin De Bruyne if you like.

“He is the guy that has to take the responsibility of getting on the ball for Arsenal.”
