Arsenal welcome Brighton to the Emirates Stadium for their final match of the Premier League season today.
Mikel Arteta’s side are on a run of four straight wins in the Premier League and could climb to seventh in the table if they stretch that run to five. The Gunners would need Leicester to beat Tottenham and Everton to fail to win at Manchester City, however.
Finishing seventh would result in qualification to the new Europa Conference League, which will be introduced by Uefa from next season.
Brighton, fresh from defeating champions Manchester City 3-2 on Tuesday, could rise as many as three places and finish 13th if they win their final match of the campaign.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match this afternoon.
