Brighton & Hove Albion took to social media on Friday to point to a clear dig at Arsenal, with the latter’s fanbase responding in their numbers.
Showdown by the sea
The Seagulls and the Gunners, of course, are ready to renew their rivalries tomorrow night.
In the first meeting between the teams in 2021/22, Arsenal will make the trip to Amex, aiming to seize a good moment recently.
After falling into a trio of successive defeats to open the campaign, Mikel Arteta’s men have made a major comeback in recent weeks, racking up four consecutive victories in all competitions.

Brighton, however, will not be easy on Saturday.
Graham Potter’s team have proven to be the surprise package of the Premier League season thus far, placing second, alongside players like Manchester City and Chelsea.
As such, it seems certain that a trial matter will be awaiting both parties within 24 hours.
And, as described above, as the South Coast clash continues to draw closer, the hosts have now chosen to target their next opponents.
This comes in the form of a simple but completely effective post on the club’s social media platforms.
As shown below, Brighton has posted a photo of Neal Maupay, making a crying gesture, accompanied by the caption ‘Arsenal at home is next’:

For those unaware, this is a less than subtle dig by the Seagulls, referring to the club’s controversial encounter with Arsenal at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, which ultimately culminated in the expulsion of Bernd Leno, Maupay. bagged a winner in the 95th minute, and Matteo Guendouzi launched an outburst that nearly ended his Gunners career.
In turn, it should come as no surprise to hear that many of Arsenal fans have failed to see the funny side of Brighton’s taunt, with just a few of the hundreds of responses to the post shown below:
