The Albion came off to a bad start into the season with losing three of their first six matches, but with one draw and one win in the past two matches, Brighton go into the match with confidence as head coach Melissa Phillips said in the pre-match press conference: “We’ll take a lot of confidence from the directions that our performances are going”.
Phillips has previously been impressed with the fans at the Broadfield Stadium and described the atmosphere as “absolutely electric”. For the first time ever, the Seagulls now have the opportunity to play in front of a sold out stadium.Embed from Getty Images
Arsenal won their past four games and are hoping to extend their winning streak to five. As Chelsea won against Liverpool, the Gunners hope to keep the lead of the Blues to three points.Embed from Getty Images
Nonetheless, head coach Jonas Eidevall is certain about Brighton’s previous performances: “You can see it’s a really well-built group (and) those teams are always very hard to play against”.
