Roberto De Zerbi, the coach of Brighton, has identified an exceptional player from Arsenal who constantly gives him anxiety. It’s not Saka or Martinelli, but rather the unwavering power of a special talent on their squad.
This player in particular causes the opposing defenders to become nervous whenever he gets the ball, which makes him Brighton’s main source of worry.
De Zerbi recognizes the special danger that this Arsenal player poses, as he appears to be the lone fighter keeping him up at night before their impending match.
Even though Joao Pedro’s late goal gave Brighton a thrilling 1-0 victory over Marseille, Scottish international Billy Gilmour is already turning his attention to Sunday’s matchup against Arsenal at the Emirates.
After winning their Europa League group, the 22-year-old midfield player, who is currently enjoying a run of great form, expressed his desire to advance as far as possible in the competition.
Gilmour expressed the team’s joy at getting three points in an interview with TNT Sports immediately following the Marseille victory, but he quickly focused on the impending matchup with Arsenal.
Recognizing Arsenal’s strength—especially in light of recent additions like Declan Rice and Kai Havertz—Gilmour feels confident that the team can repeat its success against these tough rivals.
Gilmour is happy to be working under Coach Roberto De Zerbi’s direction and is savoring the chance to keep up his present form. Gilmour acknowledged the difficulties encountered in certain past outcomes while stressing the team’s collective effort and expressing his desire to make a major contribution on the field.
In addition to guaranteeing Brighton’s place in the Europa League’s round of 16, the victory over Marseille also set the date for their next knockout stage match, which is set for March 2024, after the draw on February 23.
Brighton has a very clear goal: they want to succeed on many fronts. They want to show that they are resilient and determined to succeed not only in the Premier League but also in the Europa League.
