THE TEAM NEWS

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal picked up a draw in their first game since Unai Emery was dismissed but that extends their winless run to eight in all competitions.
  • Caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg made some changes but their defensive frailties reared their ugly head in the 2-2 draw with Norwich.
  • He is expected to make one or two changes for this match as Tierney, Torreira and Saka could all potentially come into the starting line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Chambers, Mustafi, David Luiz, Tierney; Xhaka, Guendouzi; Saka, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Unavailable: Dani Ceballos (Injured)

Doubtful: Holding (Injured), Bellerin (Injured)

BRIGHTON

  • Brighton come off their third league defeat in a row but they will have been heartened by their performance at Anfield against the leaders.
  • Boss Graham Potter has no new injury concerns coming into this match but he is expected to rotate his team for the trip to North London.
  • French striker Maupay was unexpectedly left out at Anfield but he should return to the line-up along with Belgian playmaker Trossard.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ryan; Montoya, Dunk, Webster, Burn; Bissouma, Stephens, Propper; Connolly, Maupay, Trossard

Unavailable: Izquierdo (Injured)

Doubtful: March (Injured), Bernardo (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Despite the departure of Unai Emery, Arsenal's weaknesses were there for all to see once again in the 2-2 draw with Norwich at the weekend. While their home form is typically strong, they remain vulnerable at the back and even if they do manage to win, Brighton can score against this defence.
