Arsenal will not take part in the newly-formed Europa Conference League next season despite beating Graham Potter’s Brighton side who offered little in an attacking sense despite proving difficult to break down.

Two goals from the in-form Nicolas Pepe were enough to hand Arsenal their fifth Premier League win in a row, the most consecutive victories the Gunners have enjoyed since the early days of the Unai Emery era.

Results elsewhere did not fall in Arsenal’s favour, with fierce local rivals Tottenham beating FA Cup winners Leicester City though Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton were on the receiving end of a rampant Manchester City display.

Before match

Arsenal today remain in the hunt for European football as they take on Brighton on the final day of the Premier League season.

The 2020/21 campaign has been one of highs and lows for Arsenal – mostly lows, if we’re being brutally honest – but the Gunners have been in form of late despite their Europa League semi-final disappointment, and look to be signing off on a high.

Arsenal face the prospect of not playing in Europe for the first time in 25 years, but will qualify for the new Europa Conference League if they beat Brighton and Tottenham and Everton both fail to win on Sunday.

Line-up

Arsenal XI: Leno, Chambers, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney, Xhaka, Partey, Odegaard, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang.

Subs: Runarsson, Saka, Ceballos, Lacazette, Cedric, Mari, Elneny, Nketiah, Martinelli.
