A win at Selhurst Park would have seen Arsenal leapfrog their bitter rivals Tottenham and reclaim the coveted final Champions League qualification spot, but a 3-0 demolition followed, as Crystal Palace ran away with the match. Arsenal may still be a little shellshocked, but they need to quickly get their top-four challenge back on track with a win against Brighton. 

The defeat to Palace was damaged beyond the final result. Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey suffered injuries before and during the match respectively, meaning that Arsenal could come into this fixture weakened. Nevertheless, Arsenal will be comforted by having the third-best home record in the Premier League this season. The Gunners have won 10 of 14 matches at the Emirates and only suffered defeats at home to Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. 

Meanwhile, Brighton are coming off the back of a goalless stalemate against bottom of the table Norwich City. This was a hugely frustrating afternoon for the south coast club, as it now marks three league matches without a goal for the Seagulls, and they’ve also failed to score in six of their last seven. The situation wasn’t helped by striker Neal Maupay missing a penalty. 

At least this draw did halt Brighton’s run of six straight defeats, but it wasn’t an especially inspiring point when you consider the quality of the opposition faced. In the reverse fixture, Graham Potter’s men were able to hold Arsenal to a 0-0 draw, but a repeat of that scoreline seems fairly unlikely. 

Arsenal have everything still to play for, while Brighton’s squad appears to be dreaming of their summer holidays already. The winner of this match seems like a forgone conclusion, but football often throws up curveballs. Find out how this one plays out by watching the Arsenal vs Brighton live stream — and we'll show you how to do that below. 

Here's how they line up:

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Gabriel, Saka, Odegaard, Lacazette, Smith-Rowe, Soares, Lokonga, Xhaka, Martinelli.

Brighton: Sanchez, Cucurella, Dunk, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Trossard, Mwepu, Gross, Welbeck, Caicedo, Veltman.
