Arsenal FC vs Brighton Free Betting Tips
Revelations and confusions were most recently dismissed by Coach Unai Emery. He was followed by Freddie Ljungberg – but the arrival of the well-known Swede alone could not bring about a change: his debut against Norwich was sobering (2: 2). On Thursday, at Ljungberg’s home debut should be against Brighton & Hove Albion (15th, 15 points, 16:21 goals) everything better. Whether these hopes are confirmed?

The last three results: 2: 2 vs. Norwich City, 1: 2 Vs. Eintracht Frankfurt, 2: 2 Vs. Southampton FC
Freddie Ljungberg is the new strong man at Arsenal: The club legend inherited Unai Emery, after the Gunners against Eintracht Frankfurt had remained victorious for the seventh consecutive year (1: 2).
The results were one, the catastrophic mood the other: atmospheric disturbances, a captain’s debate, bizarre news about players who did not understand Emery because of its strong accent. The club responsible, which is now clear, have been calculating for a long time with a soon to leave the coach.
Luckily, who can present a true club legend in such a situation: Ljungberg, who was previously assistant coach, will take over the head coaching position interm. Some say he was promoted in the summer for that very reason – to replace Emery, who has been out of favor for a while, in the short term.
The Swede is said to have an ambitious, ambitious, but also very human nature, which he can now prove for the first time at a professional level. The young players in the squad should follow him – not a few owe him, formerly in the U17 and U23, their breakthrough. But what about the older people?
The first eye test, on Sunday against Norwich, leaves mixed feelings: The Gunners worked visibly endeavored, driven among others by Mesut Özil, but the weaknesses that have been apparent for weeks were again present. The defensive, headed by Shkodran Mustafi, makes some blatant blunders – which ultimately resulted in both goals – and lacked in the attack over long stretches of the river.
Ljungberg now stays three days in order to re-adjust his team, to initialise the first mechanisms and to make it fit for his home debut. Not much time. But maybe enough.
Possible lineup Arsenal FC
Ljungberg presented against Norwich a starting eleven without any surprises. With one exception, it should remain so: Mustafi could be replaced after his weak appearance by Sokratis.
Leno – Chambers, Socrates, David Luiz, Kolasinac – Xhaka, Guendouzi – Aubameyang, Willock, Ozil – Lacazette
Brighton & Hove Albion – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 1: 2 vs. Liverpool FC 0: 2 Vs. Leicester City, 1: 3 Vs. Manchester United
November was rock hard for Brighton & Hove Albion: Legs of a month were faced by Manchester United, Leicester City and Liverpool – and now Arsenal are next in line. At least nominally.
So far, the Underdog has not managed to score in this difficult phase: 1: 3 against ManUnited, 0: 2 against Leicester, 1: 2 against Liverpool – basically all three games were similar. The Seagulls always presented themselves respectably, always able to play along. But they were not seriously competitive.
The defeats cost Brighton a few places in the table – the team fell from 8th to 15th place. However, the development also shows that it should soon be uphill again, as soon as the Seagulls no longer meet top clubs. And if the FC Arsenal currently should count to this squad, the club has yet to prove.
Possible lineup Brighton & Hove Albion
Graham Potter looked to Liverpool as a solid to good performance for his team, with little, if any, change.
Ryan – Montoya, Webster, Dunk, Burn – Pröpper, Stephens, Bissouma – Big, Conolly, Mooy
Arsenal FC vs Brighton Free Betting Tips
Arsenal are in favor of a duel against Brighton & Hove Albion – but the current period of weakness has left its mark: With victory rates around 1.60, the Gunners are in the value range, although the Seagulls are a relegation candidate.
At the moment, it is hard to say to what extent the recent change of coach can lead the Gunners back on the road to success. Fact is: against Norwich was from Ljungberg’s handwriting as good as nothing to see – and given only three days of regeneration time, one should not expect this to change Brighton.
Accordingly, one should count on a not very respectable game in which Arsenal will make an effort and will have more play – but hardly dominate. It should therefore, as in previous games with Gunners or Seagulls involvement, come to an open exchange with some goals.
