PREDICTION
Arsenal's season has completely unravelled in recent weeks and a top four place looks beyond them now. Wenger's demoralised men face a confident Brighton side here who have picked up two wins and two draws from their last four league outings to put a little distance between themselves and the relegation zone. Morale at the Amex is good at the moment and Hughton's charges are good value to pick up a point against the beleagured Gunners.

MEMORABLE MEETING
January 2013 saw the two sides paired together in the FA Cup fourth round as then Championship outfit Brighton looked to create a cup giant killing at the AMEX Stadium. It looked as if they would at least earn a replay back at the Emirates with the score at 2-2 with just five minutes remaining. Unfortunately for Gus Poyet’s men, their hearts would broken by a late Theo Walcott strike as the Gunners moved on to the next round of the competition.
