Arsenal hosts Brighton & Hove Albion
Arsenal hosts Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium in a match from the 15th week of the Premier League. In our Premier League predictions we will examine this fixture for you. Let’s go!
Arsenal are currently in a negative run of six consecutive games without a win in the Premier League. This is the main reason why the managed Unai Emery was sacked by the club’s board. He was replaced by the club legend Fredrik Ljungberg, who already debuted with a 2-2 during the visit to Norwich City in the weekend. Right now the Gunners are 8th in the league standings with 19 points and they must find a quick fix to the situation.
Against Norwich City Freddy Ljungberg left the young star Nicolas Pepe on the bench, not puttng him on the pitch even for a second. Lucas Torreira also started from the bench. The Swede could make some changes for the next match. We believe that Nicolas Pepe could be a good addition to his starting line-up.
A player Ljungberg can’t use against Brighton & Hove is the Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos, who is recovering right now.
Brighton & Hove Albion are 16th in the Premier League standings with 15 points won, but only three points ahead of the 18th Southampton and the relegation zone. Their record so far looks like that: four wins, three draws and seven losses.
At this moment Brighton & Hove are in a run of three consecutive losses in the league. In their last game Graham Potter’s lads visited the leader Liverpool and suffered a 1-2 defeat. Lewis Dunk scored Brighton & Hove’s only goal in the game.
That’s our Premier League predictions for the match between Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium. Can Freddie Ljungberg secure his first win as an Arsenal manager? We shall see.
