Arsenal vs Brighton – The Gunners are set to battle another relatively ‘small’ team in the league as they take on Brighton on Sunday. On a normal day, everyone would have given the Gunners a victory with a wide goal-margin.
Unfortunately, the present Arsenal are a shadow of themselves, they hardly control the midfield; score goals and above all, their defence line now concede goals easily.
With so much respect for Petr Cech, but the Czech international looks like the goalie who has passed his prime. Petr Cech’s positioning while under constant pressure from opponents’ attackers, this season has left so much to be desired unlike his time at the Stamford Bridge stadium where he was described as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
The Gunners were defeated in their last three consecutive matches despite facing minnows in one of the fixtures. When fans thought they are back to great form after series of overwhelming performances, Wenger’s men surprisingly lost to Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK in the Europa League last-32 second leg fixture two weeks back at the Emirates stadium.

After the shock defeat, Wenger led his team out to the pitch against Manchester City in last Sunday’s Carabao Cup final but they were thrashed by a superior team who have more determination and quality to win their first trophy in the league.
Arsenal also met the same opponents Manchester City, this time in the league game last Thursday but they were defeated 3-0 by City for the second time in just one week.
Despite their current uninspiring display, former Liverpool player Ince believes the Gunners will come out victorious over Brighton who currently occupies the 12th position in the League table with just four points from relegation.
Ince told Daily Express that he expects an easy win for Arsenal despite huge criticisms from their followers. The Liverpool legend was so optimistic that he predicted a 3-1 away win for the North London Club.
“Arsenal have faced a lot of criticism recently, and I understand why and I agree with the majority of it….But that doesn’t mean they won’t get an easy win at Brighton this weekend.” Ince concluded.
