Ahead of the game, a number of interesting stats regarding both Brighton and Arsenal have been revealed:

  • Arsenal are looking to complete the Premier League double over Brighton for the second time, previously doing so in the 2020-21 campaign.
  • Since losing 3-1 to West Ham United in August, Brighton are unbeaten in their last 12 home Premier League matches, their longest unbeaten run at the Amex in the competition.
  • Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four away Premier League matches – only once in their league history have they kept five in a row, doing so between February and April 1997.
  • Brighton have won just three of their 18 Premier League games kicking off at 17:30 on a Saturday.
  • Since the turn of the year, Arsenal haven’t trailed for a single minute in any of their five away Premier League games, conceding the fewest goals, allowing the lowest xG against (2.26) and facing the fewest shots on target on the road of any side in 2024.
