Arsenal are trying to keep up in the title race, but Brighton & Hove Albion are desperate for redemption entering Sunday's English Premier League match. Arsenal (25-6-4) can't slip up again if they are to catch Manchester City as the reigning champs entered the weekend one point ahead at the top of the EPL table, with a game in hand. The Gunners clinched a top-two spot with a 2-0 victory at Newcastle United last Sunday, but they led the league for much of the season, so the title is the goal. Brighton (16-7-10) are in seventh place and are looking to rebound from an inexplicable 5-1 loss to 17th-place Everton on Monday. They can still earn a spot in European competition, but it will be an uphill battle as their final five matches include meetings with the EPL's top three teams.

Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. ET in London. Arsenal are -129 favorites (risk $129 to win $100) in Caesars Sportsbook's latest Arsenal vs. Brighton odds. Brighton are +305 underdogs, a draw is priced at +300 and the over/under for total match goals is 3.5.

Why you should back Arsenal

The Gunners will be on a mission after relinquishing the top spot in the table. They are always tough to beat at the Emirates, where they are 13-3-1 and plus-26 in goal differential this season. They have scored 83 goals overall, second-most in the league and 20 more than Brighton. Four players have scored at least 10, led by Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli, who both have 15. Gabriel Jesus missed a few months after having surgery on the knee he injured at the World Cup. He has five goals over the past seven matches and 10 in 23 games overall, while the trio has a combined 17 assists.

Bukayo Saka joins those three in spearheading the Arsenal attack, and he is tied for fourth in the league in combined goals (13) and assists (11). Arsenal's only loss at home was a 2-1 setback to Manchester City in February, as they have scored at least three goals in all six league home matches since then. The Gunners beat Brighton 4-2 in the most recent meeting on Dec. 31, getting goals from Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah. Arsenal have some key injuries on defense, but goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is second in the league with 13 clean sheets and has 90 saves (T-9). See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Brighton 

The Seagulls know they're a better team than they showed last weekend. They did dominate overall, holding the ball for an eye-popping 78% of the match and outshooting the Toffees 23-10. They put just five of those shots on target (and allowed five), and that's not typical. Arsenal lead the league in shots, but Brighton have more on net. Their 192 on target is second in the league behind only Man City (193). They put an average of 36% of their shots on net. Arsenal's defense is depleted, with both William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko ruled out for the rest of the season earlier this week.

The Seagulls have won three of their past four trips to the Emirates, and they had a few impressive victories before the loss to Everton. They beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in mid-April and knocked off Manchester United 1-0 just 10 days ago. They lost to United on penalties in the FA Cup semifinals last month. Brighton haven't scored at Arsenal's pace but have the fifth-most goals in the league, and seven players have at least four. Alexis Mac Allister got his 10th on Monday, and Pascal Grob (eight goals) and Danny Welbeck (six) each scored twice in a 6-0 victory against Wolves on April 29. See which team to pick here.
