Brighton vs Arsenal Preview and Prediction:
|Start Date||4th March 2018 – 13:30 GMT|
Arsenal need to beat Brighton on Sunday to keep any faint hopes of qualifying for Champions League football next season.
destructive defeats to Tottenham and Manchester city have seen the Gunners drop 10 points in the back of fourth place with 10 games to go.
Arsene Wenger is dealing with huge pressure on his job, not for the first time in current seasons, and anything less than a win on Sunday would all but quit the Gunners’ top-4 hopes.
Brighton are unbeaten in six games across all competitions and thumbed Swansea 4-1 last time out.

Jurgen Locadia will hope for a 2nd competitive begin after netting in appearances following his arrival from PSV.
Hughton, though, may want to name the same XI that started the 4-1 win over Swansea last time out.
Nacho Monreal, Alexandre Lacazette and Santi Cazorla are all ruled out for the Gunners here.
Arsene Wenger may want to revert to a 4-3-3 setup, with Elneny starting alongside Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey inside the middle of the park.
