Arsenal were in the doldrums after three consecutive defeats although Mikel Arteta’s side have since rallied to land a hat-trick of wins. Their most recent victory was a 3-1 triumph over arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur and the confidence levels have significantly increased as the Spaniard gets his first-choice players back in the team and looking strong.

Arteta will have been particularly encouraged by the fact that three of the front four found the net against Spurs, with Bukayo Saka, Emil Smith Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting on the scoresheet. Martin Odegaard is also back at the Emirates and it was his goal that gave the Gunners the victory at Turf Moor in their previous clash.

Graham Potter is currently favourite to be the next Tottenham Hotspur manager and Brighton managed to score a late equaliser at Selhurst Park on Monday night to continue their strong start to the campaign, with Neal Maupay having a great season in front of goal and he could cause problems for a Gunners defence who wobbled during the second half of the North London derby.

The Seagulls are playing some typically attractive football but we do feel as though Arsenal have that firepower in their ranks which means they are more likely to come out on top. Therefore, we’ll take a wager on the visitors to keep that impressive run going.
