Arsenal can still secure a place in Europe if it beats Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium on Championship Sunday and gets a little help around the Premier League (start time 11am ET online via Peacock Premium).
The Gunners are going to finish with their second-fewest points this century — the worst being last season — and Mikel Arteta would love to finish strong even if the best Arsenal can do is a Europa Conference League spot.
The ninth-place Gunners would need to win and have both Tottenham and Everton drop points to lay claim to seventh.
Brighton, meanwhile, hopes to build on famous win over Man City to finish as high as 13th on the Premier League table.
