Arsenal vs Brighton LIVE Football Score 23/5/2021
NAME: Arsenal – Brighton & Hove Albion
DATE: 23 May 2021
TIME: 15:00 UTC
VENUE: Emirates Stadium, London, England
Arsenal will be without Hector Bellerin as the full-back has been ruled out with a leg injury that he sustained against Chelsea earlier this month so he may have played his last game for the club amid rumours of a possible summer move. David Luiz remains a doubt with an on-going thigh injury that’s kept him out of the past four games while second choice goalkeeper Mat Ryan is ineligible to face his parent club. Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard are pushing for recalls after making impacts off the bench against Crystal Palace while Granit Xhaka should return to the starting eleven after recovering from a groin injury.
Arsenal’s run of four consecutive Premier League wins is their best since a seven-match streak under Unai Emery in October 2018. An Arsenal defeat would set an outright club record of eight Premier League home losses in a season. The Gunners, who begin the day in ninth, could finish outside the top eight for only the third time in their past 38 top-flight campaigns.
Brighton’s nine victories this season equals their final tally from each of their top-flight campaigns since promotion in 2017. They need one point to finish with a club record total in the Premier League, surpassing the 41 earned last year. Albion can also set an outright top-flight record of six away victories in a season. Pascal Gross has registered six Premier League assists in 2021, more than any other player.
