Brighton & Hove Albion FC
Brighton returned to winning ways against Southampton after the World Cup. They lost at home to Aston Villa just before the international break – Brighton’s only defeat in their last seven games. Despite losing Graham Potter to Chelsea, the Seagulls have done enough by their standards and are only six points away from the top four. Brighton knocked out Arsenal in the EFL Cup in November and would need to be on top of their game once again against a resilient Arsenal team.
Arsenal’s win over West Ham ensures they end the year on top of the league. The Gunners performed well in attack despite missing Gabriel Jesus through injury. Arsenal has four wins from their last five games in the league. The Gunners won their first five games in the Premier League this season and can match that winning streak with a victory at the AMEX Stadium. Mikel Arteta’s team has already gotten wins against the top guns in the league and would be looking to end the year with a victory.

Brighton vs Arsenal Betting Predictions
Both Teams to Score @ 1.67 (4/6)
Arsenal and Brighton arrive in very good scoring form. They are one of the best-attacking teams in the league and base their style on outscoring the opponents, and as such, goals are expected on both ends in this game. Arsenal has scored 36 goals in the league and is averaging over two goals per game. The Gunners have scored in all Premier League games so far and have also conceded in their last three games. However, betting on Arsenal itself can be dangerous against attacking opponents like the BHA.
Like Arsenal, Brighton has been very productive in front of goal. They are averaging over a goal per game and scored nine goals in their last five games. Brighton has not been great defensively, with just one clean sheet in their last five games. The last two matches between Arsenal and Brighton have seen both teams get on the scoresheet. Backing both teams to score is one of the best options with great value in this game.
Arsenal to Win @ 2.10 (11/10)
Arsenal is ending the year as league leaders in the English Premier League after a bright start to the season. The Gunners have won 13 out of 15 matches in the league, losing just once and sharing the spoils on one occasion. Arsenal has won five consecutive games in the league, and that run includes wins against tougher opponents like Chelsea and West Ham. Brighton is currently 16 points behind Arsenal and has one win in their last four games. Arsenal has a better squad and a bet on the Gunners to take all three points is worth the risk.
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.80 (4/5)
Looking at the recent results from both teams, this game has all the markers of a high-scoring fixture. Four out of Brighton’s last five games have ended with three goals or more, while three of Arsenal’s last five games have produced at least three goals at full-time. Both teams met earlier this season in the EFL Cup, and the game finished with four goals. The over 2.5 goal option has good value for punters looking to bet on UK football.
