0

ARSENAL’S title race run-in continues with a tough trip to Brighton – and they cannot afford any slip-ups.

The Gunners are on a rich vein of form having won nine out of their last ten Premier League games.

And relegation-threatened Luton most recently fell victim to Arsenal’s good run courtesy of Martin Odegaard’s opener and Daiki Hashioka’s own goal.

But Mikel Arteta‘s men now face a Brighton side who they have had many issues with in the past.

However, Arsenal should feel confident as the Seagulls failed to beat 15th-placed Brentford in their last outing and they have been inconsistent all season.

When is Brighton vs Arsenal?

Arsenal’s next fixture in the title race run-in against Brighton will take place on Saturday, April 6.

It is scheduled to get underway at 5:30pm BST.

Amex Stadium is the chosen venue for this thrilling match and it can host approximately 30,666 fans.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz helped Arsenal secure a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

What TV channel is it on and can it be live streamed?

Brighton vs Arsenal will be broadcast LIVE on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK.

Coverage is expected to commence from 5pm BST on both channels – 30 minutes before kick-off.

Fans can stream the entire action through NOW TV.

Alternatively, SunSport will have minute-by-minute coverage of the whole match through our live blog.

What is the team news?

Roberto De Zerbi is expected to be forced to continue without some key names for this crucial fixture.

Evan Ferguson (knock), Jack Himshelwood (foot), Kaoru Mitoma (back), Solly March (knee), James Milner (thigh) and Billy Gilmour (knee) are all likely to miss the clash.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta will be hoping star boy Bukayo Saka will be fit enough to return having missed the 2-0 win against Luton.

But it looks as if it is too soon for Jurrien Timber to be back in the squad despite being in full training after his long-term knee troubles.

What are the odds?

Brighton to win 4/1

Draw 16/5
