Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League Preview and Odds

May 05, 2019 16:30pm - John Smith`s Stadium (Huddersfield)

Premier League

Four defeats in their last five Premier League matches have left Arsenal with it all to do in the race for the top four places. The Gunners will have to hope that the teams above them slip up if they are to qualify for the Champions League via the domestic league route. If they fail to reach the top four they can still qualify for the Champions League by winning this year`s edition of the Europa League. They moved a step closer to that objective with their semi-final first leg win over Valencia in mid-week.

On home soil, Unai Emery`s men had been unbeaten in 16 league matches until the defeat to Crystal Palace a fortnight ago. They will hope to get back to winning ways this weekend in their last home match of the campaign. Prior to conceding three goals at home to Palace, the North London team had only conceded two goals in their six previous Premier League home matches. A return to that kind of defensive stability will be welcome on Sunday.

What could have been a must-win game for Brighton and Hove Albion has been reduced to a mere formality following the confirmation of Cardiff City`s relegation on Saturday. The Seagulls can now travel to London in a celebratory mood and with their Premier League status intact.

With the pressure off, it is hard to predict how Brighton will perform but boss Chris Hughton will want his team to make a statement in the final two games against two top-six teams with plenty still to play for. In fact, his side could dictate the destination of the Premier League trophy when they travel to Manchester City next Sunday.

Betting odds and tips

Brighton have won just one of their last 10 Premier League away games this season and have never won away to Arsenal in their entire history.

The Gunners have lost just one of their last 16 home matches in the league and still have it all to play for. As a result, the 2/1 odds for a home win looks like the best option here.

You can back the Home Win at 2/1.
