Arsenal is involved in another massive game in the Premier League this weekend when it welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion to London. The Gunners still have one eye on the Premier League title with three games left to play, whereas Brighton hopes to jump into the Europa League spot.

To help with your Premier League, here are our picks for what could be the most important game of the season for both Brighton and Arsenal.

Arsenal to Win

Despite falling into second in the Premier League, Arsenal has still been sensational this season. It heads into this game off of becoming the first team to beat Newcastle United at St. James’ Park this campaign, thanks to another goal each from Martin Odegaard.

After a fantastic win last weekend, Arsenal has now defeated rivals Chelsea and third-placed Newcastle since their 4-1 beating from Manchester City. It means 25 wins and 83 goals scored from 35 league games.

At the same time, Brighton heads to Arsenal after a stunning 5-1 defeat at home to relegation-threatened Everton. It went 3-0 down at half time and it was its heaviest loss of the season.

Arsenal to win, over 2.5 goals and Martin Odegaard to score anytime is +419 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Brighton to Score

Although we are picking Arsenal to win, Brighton defeated Arsenal in the League Cup in late 2022 at Arsenal. Danny Welbeck, Kaoru Mitoma and Tariq Lamptey all scored a goal each that day in what was a comfortable win for the Seagulls in the end.

Brighton also scored twice in the 4-2 loss to Arsenal in the league a few weeks later. It has also scored at least one goal in the past 11 Premier League games, including a 6-0 thrashing over Wolverhampton Wanderers two weeks ago.

It is likely to lose, but after 63 goals in 33 Premier League games, Brighton is the fifth-highest scoring team in the Premier League, despite playing two fewer games than the majority.

Both teams to score and Arsenal to win is +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook.

Plenty of Shots on Target

In the past two games, Arsenal has had 16 shots on target. At the same time, Brighton has had 45 shots towards goal with 11 hitting the target in its past two games.

Gabriel Jesus has also scored within these past two games for Arsenal and he is going to be in search of his 11th Premier League goal from 23 games. 

The young superstar, Evan Ferguson, is also set to start for the first time since coming back from injury in this game and he has scored nine goals in 23 games in his first senior season. Ferguson also scored in the last game against Arsenal and he scored four goals in the 10 games before his recent injury.

The Irishman and Jesus will likely start as central strikers for their teams and they should get some shots away.

Gabriel Jesus and Evan Ferguson over 0.5 shots on target each is +175 with Unibet.
