Arsenal are set to face Brighton & Hove Albion this evening. The gunners are expected to continue with rhythm back to winning ways after three consecutive wins. The most noticeable of them all is the North London Derby which went in a thrashing 3-1 victory over spurs.
It will be interesting how the Arsenal boss lines up his team against the formidable team. Mikel Arteta will be focusing on the game with new energy after winning Premier league manager of the month after the draw was conducted yesterday.
It will be a bigger test for Arsenal to the technical side Brighton who have this season changed play of style under Graham Potter. One player to watch is Yves Bissouma who makes all the difference at the middle of the park for the Seagulls. Formerly linked to Arsenal, the CDM plays quality football breaking the attacks and moving the team forward. In simpler terms, he is a box to box midfielder.
He is expected to start against Arsenal should the Seagulls stand any chance against the Premier league giants. He has been the main man used as the sole pivot making Brighton compact in their defence. This is evident enough as they now occupy the European spot at position six, two points ahead of Arsenal.
It will be interesting also to watch how Martin Odegaard and Smith Rowe break into the defence against formidable Brighton defence. The two teams are expected to put up a good show as three points are as good as winning the silverware for either side as there is a difference of five points with the top sides.
With the Seagulls formidable form and the gunners back to winning ways, who do you think will triumph? Drop your Comments and follow @ WexhMichael Dope for more news.
