Having failed to get going against Manchester City last time out, Al Hain-Cole expects the Gunners to start slowly when they take on Potter's men

Arsenal will be aiming to bounce back from defeat when they travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Mikel Arteta’s team went down 3-0 at Manchester City on Wednesday, putting an end to their eight-match league unbeaten streak.

Nevertheless, they are 5/4 (2.25) favourites with bet365 to put that behind them by coming out on top in East Sussex.

However, the Seagulls have won two and lost none of the last four encounters with this opposition, and can backed at 2/1 (3.00) to claim maximum points yet again here.

Five of the hosts’ last seven fixtures in all competitions have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 5/2 (3.50) on offer on them sharing the spoils once more in this one.

Aaron Connolly is available despite undergoing knee surgery since play was suspended, although Jose Izquierdo is out for the rest of the season.

Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari joined Calum Chambers and Sokratis on the sidelines after going off injured at the Etihad Stadium, with David Luiz suspended following his red card.

Brighton vs Arsenal preview

Despite waiting three months to see their side back in action, Gunners supporters must have wished the hiatus had never ended after a thoroughly disappointing display against the champions.

Having scored just two first-half goals in 11 league matches on the road, it is hard to see them hitting the ground running at the Amex following Wednesday’s poor showing.

Brighton vs Arsenal predictions

Considering Graham Potter’s men have hit the net before the break just twice in nine fixtures themselves, even money (2.00) seems generous on the majority of the goals going in after half-time here.
That bet would have paid out in three of Arsenal’s last four league games, as well as December’s reverse encounter against Brighton.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
