The hosts are a point adrift of the fourth-placed Chelsea currently, and they need a victory at any cost to keep up the pace with their rivals. Regardless of the result in the Europa League Semifinals, Unai Emery will desire to finish in the top four to ease his burden during his debut year with the English outfit.
Brighton are four points above Cardiff City, who are positioned 18th in the league table. The Seagulls have not won a game in three months and Houghton is in a huge pressure to deliver results and keep them in the Premier League. The gap will be cut short to just one point if Brighton lost tomorrow and Cardiff beat Crystal Palace in front of their home fans.
We will look at Arsenal’s team news, injury news, and predicted lineup as they prepare to take on Brighton and Hove Albion.

Aaron Ramsey will not be available for Arsenal unless they reach the Europa League finals later in May. The Welsh International picked up a hamstring injury against Napoli and it is likely to keep him out for the next two weeks.
Denis Suarez, who is currently on loan from FC Barcelona will miss the remained of the campaign due to a groin injury. Laurent Koscielny suffered a huge knock after a 3-1 victory over Valencia on Thursday. The Skipper’s inclusion on Sunday remains to be watched over the next day.
Has Chris Hughton done enough to keep @OfficialBHAFC up?
