Arsenal today remain in the hunt for European football as they take on Brighton on the final day of the Premier League season.

The 2020/21 campaign has been one of highs and lows for Arsenal - mostly lows, if we’re being brutally honest - but the Gunners have been in form of late despite their Europa League semi-final disappointment, and look to be signing off on a high.

Arsenal face the prospect of not playing in Europe for the first time in 25 years, but will qualify for the new Europa Conference League if they beat Brighton and Tottenham and Everton both fail to win on Sunday.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Arsenal vs Brighton is scheduled for a 4pm BST kick-off on Sunday, May 23, 2021.

Thousands of Arsenal fans will be back at Emirates Stadium following the easing of lockdown restrictions in England.

Arsenal vs Brighton prediction

Brighton’s momentous 3-2 win against champions Man City in midweek should serve as a warning to Arsenal, but that game may well have taken a fair bit out of the Seagulls. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a comfortable home win if the visitors are feeling the after-effects of that comeback victory.
