With the Europa League dream dying at the semi-final stage after a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Spanish outfit Villarreal, Arsenal have had to switch their attentions to the Premier League in the final stages of the campaign. That switch has paid off too, with the Gunners winning their last four consecutive league fixtures.
Those 12 points keep Mikel Arteta’s side in with a chance of securing seventh place on the final day of the season and entering European competition next season. They’ll need to pick up all three points here however and hope that both Everton and arch rivals Tottenham drop points, although that’s very much a possibility with both of those sides facing tough final day fixtures.
Brighton & Hove Albion are the visitors to the Emirates Stadium on the final day. The Seagulls have done well to remain above the relegation zone and pull away from the bottom three in the second half of the season and they now seem to be enjoying playing without pressure, particularly at the Amex Stadium where they are unbeaten in five games.
On the road however, Graham Potters’ men have still shown their vulnerabilities at times and they’ve managed to pick up just one point from an available 12 across their last four league games. In beating champions Manchester City in midweek though, Brighton showed they’re certainly still up for the fight in these final fixtures of the season.
Arsenal vs Brighton: Match Stats
Amid this run of improved league form, Arsenal have been saving their better performances for the first-half of games. The Gunners have led at half-time in all four of those matches before going onto win the game. If they lead at the break on Sunday, they’ll be sure to be particularly keen to avoid any complacency after Brighton’s comeback win over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in midweek.
Although he has lacked consistency in his time with Arsenal, Nicolas Pepe has shown some of his better form in recent weeks. The Ivorian scored three times in Arsenal’s last four Europa League games and he has found the net a further three times in their last three league matches to boot.
