When is Brighton v Arsenal?
Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Saturday June 20.
What time does Brighton v Arsenal kick-off?
Brighton v Arsenal will make history as being the first ever live broadcast Saturday 3pm game in the Premier League. It is the second of four Premier League games that day, all of which will be televised.
What is at stake?
It’s a vitally important game to both teams.
Arsenal need to start converting draws into wins to make a push for the European qualification places. Arteta’s troops are currently languishing down in an unfamiliar mid-table position, and no one at the Emirates will consider that even remotely good enough.
Brighton, meanwhile, are embroiled in a scrap for survival and need to create some wriggle room between themselves and the bottom three.
Where can I watch Brighton v Arsenal?
BT Sport is your port of call for this one, which is a prestigious pick-up given the history involved.
Is Brighton v Arsenal free-to-air?
I’m afraid not. BT Sport have opted against making any of their remaining live matches free-to-air, so you’re going to need a subscription.
What is the team news?
Hector Bellerin and Lucas Torreira are likely to be fit again for Arsenal after taking full advantage of the coronavirus break to recover from long-standing injuries. Callum Chambers is still some way from returning, though.
Brighton duo Steven Alzate and Aaron Connolly are minor doubts, but other than that boss Graham Potter has a full squad to pick from.
What happened in the reverse match?
Goals from Adam Webster and Neal Maupay handed Brighton a surprise, but most welcome, 2-1 win at the Emirates back in December.
What are the odds?
Arsenal are the favourites at around 21/20 with hosts Brighton priced at 12/5. The draw can be backed at 5/2.
