Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has spoken out on why their upcoming match against Brighton & Hove Albion will be a tough one to win. The Gunners are currently in a title race as they sit second on the 2022/23 Premier League table with 81 points after 35 games, closely following first-placed Manchester City which has 82 points plus one game in hand. Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion is currently fighting for a European spot as they are in the eighth position on the Premier League table with 55 points.

Arteta acknowledged that Brighton & Hove Albion is a strong team with a great mentality. He said as per Arsenal media, “When a team has that mentality I think it’s hard to stop them. But I believe in our qualities and I believe in every player. When you win games, you have a better chance of winning the next one because your confidence level is high, so we have to try and be ourselves and try and play the Arsenal way. Whenever we do that, we are able to beat any team.”

The Spanish coach also praised Brighton’s style of play and their never-give-up attitude. He added, “You can see [Brighton] play good football and their mentality is strong. They never give up. I think it will be a very difficult game because they want to keep the ball, and we want to keep the ball so we have to be good at doing that and stronger in recovering the ball and keeping it.”

Arsenal will need to be at their best if they want to secure all three points against Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls have been impressive this season under Roberto De Zerbi guidance, playing attractive football while also being defensively solid.


With just three games left in the season, every point is crucial for Arsenal if they want to win their first Premier League title since 2004. The Gunners will be hoping that their quality and experience will shine through against Brighton & Hove Albion, but they will need to be prepared for a tough battle at the Amex Stadium.
