Brighton vs Arsenal Post-Match Opta Facts

  • Arsenal won both Premier League meetings with Brighton in 2023-24 without conceding a goal; the first time the Seagulls have lost and failed to score home and away against an opponent in the Premier League under Roberto De Zerbi, having last done so in 2021-22 against Aston Villa (under Graham Potter).
  • Brighton suffered their first home defeat in the Premier League since August (3-1 vs West Ham), ending what was their longest home unbeaten run in the competition (12 games). Indeed, this was their heaviest home defeat to nil in the top-flight since February 2022 (3-0 vs Burnley).
