Ideally, the contestants must solve the opposite problem in the season, as Arsenal is one of the perennial favorites the Premier League, and Brighton – permanent outsider. The “southerners” remain the only team in the League, which this year did not know the taste of victory. But the “Arsenal” until recently, remained the only team in the championship, which this year is not lost.
But it happened to “stars” this season, Brighton really is fully consistent with the predictions and oracles remains one of the contenders for relegation, occupying 15-e a place, but Arsenal did not meet expectations: the team has long been eliminated from the title race. The current position of the Londoners in the standings to ninth place. True, a certain share of luck the gunners can jump even in the top four. But it needs a total patronage of Fortune, which is still in no hurry to define their commitment to the team Arteta.
After a long pause related to the epidemic coronavirus, Arsenal resumed the season with a match against the yet current champion of England “Teams”. And was mercilessly bit the bulls – 3:0. “Teacher”, that is, Guardiola, was head and shoulders stronger than “student”, that is, Artery. Although the Islands as a result took for granted: the current Arsenal is not like the current “city”.
Despite the different “specific weight” of these opponents in the Premier League, Brighton in recent times is an inconvenient opponent for Arsenal. In the last seven meetings – almost parity: won three Londoners, twice – Brighton, two matches ended in a draw. It is noteworthy that the first leg (in London) ended in favour of Brighton – 2:1. And another thing: Arsenal can’t win against the gulls in four games.
Guests prior to the meeting faced a serious personnel problems. Due to suspension will not be able to participate in the game David Luiz and papastathopoulos, xhaka, Soares, Marie and chambers are in the club infirmary. “Brighton” will not be able to help the injured Esqueda.
