Brighton and Hove Albion face a tough visit to the Emirates on Sunday to face Arsenal but perhaps the timing will work in their favour.
Arsenal beat West Brom on Monday evening in the league and travel to BATE Borisov in Belarus for a Thursday night Europa League game. Thursday night games, renowned for their remarkable consistency in draining the energies of top teams, always play into opposition hands. Furthermore, the 12 pm kick-off time will scupper Arsenal fans' usual pre-match preparations and thus they are less likely to create a daunting atmosphere foe the visitors, especially when facing a newly promoted side. Arsene Wenger has lamented the demands which the schedule is placing on his players, describing it as "cruel". Perhaps this stroke of luck is what will help Brighton get an unexpected result in London. Sep 27 - 11:20 AM
