The Gunners have won their last four matches against Brighton in all competitions, with three of those last four wins coming in the FA Cup, most recently a 3-2 win in January 2015 at the Amex.
49% of Brighton’s shots this season have come from outside the box (27/55); a league-high proportion.
Arsenal haven’t lost a home Premier League match in the month of October since 2002; a 1-2 defeat to Blackburn – since then, they’re unbeaten in 26 matches in the month (W21 D5).
Arsene Wenger has currently won a Premier League game against 44 different teams – level with Sir Alex Ferguson. If he wins this match, Brighton will be the 45th different club he’s defeated in the competition and it would be an outright Premier League record for a manager.
- Arsenal win
- Brighton win
