Arsenal will attempt to keep their title hopes alive when they host a rattled Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal won 2-0 at Newcastle United last weekend, ensuring that they will finish at least second in the Premier League. They’ve travelled too far and battled too hard to be satisfied with that and keep their eyes on the prize.

Arsenal manager Arteta sought to instil fear in his players by showing them highlights from their Amazon documentary of last year’s humiliating 2-0 loss to Newcastle, which effectively ruined their hopes of a Champions League comeback.

Last weekend’s strong performance at St James’ Park could have had serious ramifications for Arsenal’s end-of-season ambitions, but Arteta’s side unexpectedly neutralised the Magpies’ threat and made the long journey home in high spirits thanks to a sweetly struck Martin Odegaard opener and Fabian Schar’s own goal.

Arsenal’s encounter against Brighton on Sunday will be their toughest test of the season. Arsenal are expected to win their next two games against Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Meanwhile, Brighton travel to the Emirates after a thrashing at the hands of Everton last weekend at home. The Seagulls were defeated 5-1 by the Goodies in what was possibly the most unexpected result of the weekend.

Brighton’s European hopes are still alive for the time being, as they have two games in hand on Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, who are presently fifth and sixth in the table, respectively.

As a result, it goes without saying that this is a crucial game for the Seagulls. When they face Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
