Brighton and Arsenal face off on Sunday in their last English Premier League game of the season at Emirates Stadium.


Arsenal comes into this game sitting in 9th place in the standings having picked up 58 points so far this season. With a win and or a draw and a little help, they could move into the top eight, something that would make this less disappointing. Arsenal comes into this game hot having won each of their last four games inside the Premier League. In the last game against Crystal Palace, Arsenal was able to come away with the 3-1 victory. Arsenal had 69 percent of the possession in the last game and that was the difference as they were able to come away with the victory. Arsenal on the season has scored 53 goals total while their defense has given up 39 goals total. Alexandre Lacazette has been the best player for Arsenal scoring 13 goals total while adding another two assists. In this game for Arsenal it’s going to be about the offense getting out to a fast start, and they are going to need to control the pace of this play by keeping the possession strong early. 

On the other side of this matchup is Brighton who comes into this game sitting in 16th place in the standings having picked up 41 points. Even though Brighton has had their issues at times this season they are playing better as of late winning each of their last two games. In the last game against Manchester City it was the offense that was the difference putting up three goals and coming away with the victory. On the season Brighton has scored 40 goals total while their defense has given up 44 goals. Neal Maupay has been the best player for Brighton scoring eight goals and adding another two assists. In this game for Brighton it’s going to be about the defense being strong and trying to keep this game low scoring. 

Both teams are going to find offensive success early in this game and that is going to lead to a very high-scoring game. Look for this game to go well over the posted total. Back the over to cash.
