Brighton vs Arsenal 31.12.2022
Brighton are having a great season thus far. A 3-1 win at Southampton on Boxing Day kept them in the hunt for European places as they remain 7th on the log, just one point behind 6th-placed Liverpool. That win was also their third in their last 4 league games, a run they will be looking to maintain when they welcome league leaders Arsenal in Saturday’s late kickoff. They will be quietly confident as they have a fairly decent record against the Gunners, including a 3-1 win to eliminate them from the Carabao Cup in their last encounter at the start of November.
Arsenal picked up from where they left before the World Cup break. They however had to work hard to get the 3-1 win over West Ham in their Boxing Day London derby. They trailed 1-0 at home at the break and looked to be in real danger of losing just their second game of the season. A 16-minute 2nd half blitzkrieg that saw Saka, Martinelli and Nketiah score for them turned the game on its head and they maintain their five-point cushion atop the table.
With both teams coming into this match in good form, we expect an end-to-end encounter here that could possibly yield a few corners either way. 9 of their last 10 meetings have had at least 10 total corners and we are backing a repeat of the same here.
