Brighton salvaged a 1-1 draw with fierce rival Crystal Palace on Monday.

Why you should back Arsenal
The Gunners had a rough start, with some illness and injury issues and a brutal early schedule. A shocking loss to Brentford was followed by setbacks to Chelsea and Manchester City, but they have turned things around. They scored three first-half goals in the win against Spurs, with Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting on the board. Martin Odegaard joins Saka and Smith Rowe to provide top-notch support for Aubameyang, who has five goals in his last six matches in all competitions. He has 66 goals in 119 games for Arsenal.
Arsenal won both meetings last season and dominated the most recent matchup, a 2-0 home win in May. It outshot Brighton 16-5 and got a pair of goals from Nicolas Pepe. Brighton managed three shots on target over the two matchups. A defense featuring Kieran Tierney, Gabriel and newcomers Takehiro Tomiyasu and Ben White has been stout in front of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. Ramsdale has two clean sheets in three starts, and the preferred starting unit is starting to gel. The Gunners will be eager to go into the international break on a high note.
Why you should back Brighton
The Seagulls are tied with four other teams a point behind first-place Liverpool, and they are having more success in the attack this season. They rank near the bottom in shots but put 32.8 percent on target, fifth-best in the league. Neal Maupay saved the day against Palace on Monday, scoring the equalizer five minutes into second-half stoppage time. He leads the Seagulls with four goals, tied for second in the league, and has 22 EPL goals in two-plus seasons. Brighton is fifth in possession at 56 percent, while the Gunners are 14th (45.7),
The defense also has looked strong, with Brighton yielding five goals so far. Before last season’s Arsenal sweep, the Seagulls were on a five game unbeaten run in the series (3-2-0). The match at Amex last season was almost dead even. Brighton had a 13-11 edge in shots but the Gunners had one more on target (3-2) and a 51 percent to 49 advantage in possession.
