'It feels like any team can cause Arsenal problems': Mark Lawrenson gives prediction for Brighton clash
- Lawro admits Arsenal haven't improved yet under Ljungberg.
- However, the ex-Liverpool defender back Arsenal to win and keep a clean sheet.
- Mark explains that Brighton are not looking like a team that score goals at the moment.
"But the Seagulls will have been disappointed to concede two goals to set-pieces, and that was not the first time that they have done all right, but still ended up empty-handed.
"As for Arsenal? Well, Freddie Ljungberg is in charge now but nothing changes, does it? They are good going forward but still open at the back and it feels like any team can cause them problems.
"If Thursday is a good night for Arsenal, they win. If it isn't, they will drop points.
"The only thing that might help the Gunners is that, having watched the Seagulls at the weekend, I am not really sure where their goals are going to come from."
Lawro's prediction: 2-0
Arsenal have already let in 21 goals in the Premier League in 14 games. Brighton conceded the same number. The Seagulls sit sixteenth in the table 3 points behind us.
