THE PREDICTION

Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong for Arsenal on Wednesday night against Man City. They are likely to make wholesale changes here due in part to picking up several injuries and after playing half a game with just ten men. The game may have benefitted them in some respects ahead of this game but that remain to be seen as to what kind of team Mikel Arteta can field. Brighton have it all to play for with relegation a major concern but Graham Potter at least has all but one of his squad available. They were proving tough to beat at home prior to the break and with defensive solidity Potter’s focus, this could well prove to be a stalemate.
