Brighton Vs Arsenal: Match Preview & Predicted Line-Ups

Arsenal are in Brighton already as they look to keep pace in their race to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

The Gunners recovered from a dip in form to beat Burnley 3-1 on Saturday after consecutive defeats to Southampton and Tottenham ended their 22-match unbeaten streak.

“You look at pivotal moments in any season – one was getting our first win at the Amex, then our first away win and then our first win against a top-six team.

“We'd found it difficult – we played Manchester City on the first day of the season and that was a very tough game, and Chelsea was a difficult game as well.

“The Arsenal win was a fairly significant moment for us and one that we deserved,” Brighton coach Chris Hughton said.

“Brighton is the same, a very tough match physically, very organised and, like with Burnley, a very good coach who is working very well.

“We need to defend very far in our box to defend better against that,” Arsenal manager Unai Emery said.

Shane Duffy will replace Lewis Dunk in central defence for Brighton.

Predicted line-ups

Brighton: Ryan; Montoya, Balogun, Duffy, Bernardo; March, Gross, Propper, Bissouma, Knockaert; Murray.

Arsenal: Leno; Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Koscielny, Kolasinac; Torreira, Xhaka; Iwobi, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
