Top marksman

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem like a good idea to side with Neal Maupay as he is the top-scoring player for Brighton in their last 6 matches. He managed to find the back of the net 4 times and will surely want to add some more goals on Saturday.

Arsenal, on the other hand, will be looking up to an in-form Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to find the net once again. The Gabon international has scored 5 goals in the club’s last 6 games.
