Arsenal are up against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium looking to profit from any slipups in other Premier League matches. The Gunners no longer have the top four in the hands with the team trailing Chelsea by two points going into the last two games of the season. Arsenal are also under pressure from Manchester United, who are just one point behind in the table. Brighton will be able to achieve safety by matching Cardiff’s results this weekend.

Arsenal lost three games on the trot after a 3-0 loss against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The red card to Maitland-Niles early in the first half was a decisive point in the game. Arsenal went on to win 3-1 against Valencia in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals.
Brighton are close to achieving safety after a 1-1 draw with Newcastle at the AMEX Stadium. The club have a four-point advantage over Cardiff with two games left.

Arsenal may have lost four out of the recent five league matches in the Premier League to put them on the verge of missing out on a top four place, but a game against Brighton should not be a problem. The Seagulls will defend with huge numbers and almost show no interest in going forward, but Arsenal like to play against such teams with the high defensive lines. Our preview would go with a win for Arsenal.

Correct Score odds
Arsenal were able to get three goals in the Europa League game against Valencia but the last time the Gunners scored more than 2.5 goals in a league match was in February. This will be a tight game with very few goals – especially if there is no early breakthrough from Arsenal. Brighton will sit deep and make it tight for the opposition. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-0 win for Arsenal.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been under 2.5 goals in the last four matches involving Brighton, as Chris Hughton has used his team in a very defensive organisation since the 5-0 hammering from Bournemouth. Arsenal are unlikely to get any space behind the defensive line and Brighton will also defend with two banks of four. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alexandre Lacazette remains on 13 goals for the Premier League season but he has been quite good in the second-half of the season in comparison with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Frenchman scored a brace against Valencia to put Arsenal in a commanding position. Lacazette came up with the opening goals for Arsenal in this game. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Alexandre Lacazette.
