Arsenal vs Brighton Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record: Premier League 2021/22, Gameweek 7
The Gunners and Seagulls have had some feisty encounters recently and both of them are actually closer in the table than many would have predicted them to be at the start of the season. And Alley Sport brings you the Arsenal vs Brighton Preview, Prediction, Latest H2H record from the gameweek before the October international break that fans would be dreading so much.
Arsenal vs Brighton Preview
Arsenal and Brighton are just four points apart in the table as we approach gameweek seven. What would be surprising for any football fan unaware of the table right now is that it is Brighton who are on 13 points from a possible 18 while the Gunners have amassed just 9 points. It may even out as the season goes on, but for the first gameweeks, Brighton have shown that they belong in the Premier League.
Arsenal are flying high recently with 3 wins in 3, which is a welcome run considering they lost their first three games in the Premier League, including a London derby against Chelsea. It is probably what has kept Mikel Arteta in the job too. Arsenal had an active summer and it seems like the new signings needed a few games to gel in properly. A 3-1 win against rivals Tottenham Hotspur this weekend means they will be as high on confidence as they can be.
Brighton are flying high so far under Graham Potter with four wins in six games. They actually had the chance to go top of the table this weekend when they took on Crystal Palace. However, a 1-1 draw meant that they trail Liverpool by one point at the top of the table. Considering they returned to the PL just four years back, Brighton have done an immense job making themselves a regular in the top division.
Arsenal vs Brighton H2H Record
Arsenal and Brighton have met very few times in their history but that is because of Brighton and Hove Albion’s absence in the top division until very recently. Out of the 23 total meetings between the two sides, Arsenal hold a clear edge with 14 wins to Brighton’s 5, while the other 4 have been draws.
The Gunners won both the league games against Brighton last season but the Seagulls did the double over them during the campaign before that. This will be truly a tough game to call at the Amex.
Arsenal H2H record vs Brighton and Hove Albion (last 10 games): W-W-L-L-D-D-L-W-W-W
Arsenal vs Brighton Match Prediction
Brighton’s attack has been good but their defence has really stolen the show despite the club losing Ben White to the Gunners this summer. It seems that they made the right call because their defence is stronger than ever while they are £50million richer. And we expect them to rub salt in the wounds of the high-flying Gunners this weekend by securing a scoring draw.
