Watch Brighton vs Arsenal Live match and Goal Highlights
After a disastrous start to the season, when they lost their opening three league games, Mikel Arteta’s side appear to have turned a corner, winning three on the spin, culminating in last weekend’s 3-1 thumping of Tottenham at the Emirates.
The big decision for Mikel Arteta will be as to who replaces Xhaka, because he surely won’t tinker with the team that was so good against Tottenham last Sunday, given they’ve had a week break in-between.
Brighton team news
One player who has got underneath Arsenal’s skin on more than one occasion is Neal Maupay.
Back in June last year, the Brighton forward was involved in a clash with Bernd Leno which led to the keeper sitting on the sidelines for 4-6 weeks and then to make matters worse, the 25-year-old scored a winning goal in the dying minutes where he then pretended to cry as his celebration.
Brighton XI: Sanchez, Duffy, Dunk, Burn, Veltman, Gross, Lallana, Cucurella, Trossard, Moder, Maupay.
Subs: Lamptey, Connolly, Mac Allister, March, Steele, Locadia, Roberts, Richards, Sarmiento.
Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Lokonga, Smith Rowe, Odegaard, Saka, Aubameyang
Subs: Leno, Cedric, Holding, Tavares, Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Pepe, Martinelli, Lacazette
