13 - points behind rivals Tottenham in the race for fourth place and Champions League qualification.

4 - successive defeats for the Gunners in three different competitions, with Brighton adding to back-to-back losses against Manchester City (league and Carabao Cup final) as well as Ostersund in the Europa League.
