Though beaten in their last three Premier League (PL) games, Arsenal have produced some pleasing trends at home. Most notably of all, they have scored the last match goal inside the final half-hour in each of their last four PL home games, reinforcing their sense of staying power.
Additionally, since the start of May 2018, Arsenal have only conceded an equaliser once after scoring first in a PL home match. In relation to this, each of the Gunners’ last three home league victories to-nil have seen them win five of a possible six halves of football.
Winless in seven PL matches ahead of kick-off (D2, L5), and losers to-nil in each of those five defeats, Brighton have lost on all preceding PL trips to a top-six club this season. Relevantly, a majority of those have seen the ‘Seagulls’ lose to-nil (four times) and/or lose the first half to-nil (four times).
