Arsenal head to the south coast of England on a wave of confidence after defeating Tottenham 3-1 in last week's North London derby. With four straight wins in Premier League and Carabao Cup action, the Gunners are riding high. Mikel Arteta has more tools at his disposal now that the injury list is dwindling. That said, a new name was added to it when Granit Xhaka returned against the Spurs from a three-game suspension, only to go down with a knock on the knee; Albert Sambi Lokonga replaces him. Still, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are starting to gel in attack, and the Gunners stand a very good chance of making it five in a row.
Brighton, meanwhile, have had a smashing start to the season, with four wins, one loss and one draw. The latter came last week, when the Seagulls barely escaped against Crystal Palace thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Neal Maupay. Manager Graham Potter will surely push the side to return to victorious form on their home field. He'll still be without the injured Danny Welbeck, so Jakub Moder comes in, with Maupay the main man up front.
Here's how they line up:
Brighton & Hove Albion: Sanchez, Cucurella, Dunk, Maupay, Trossard, Gross, Lallana, Moder, Duffy, Burn, Veltman
Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tierney, White, Partey, Gabriel, Saka, Odegaard, Smith-Rowe, Aubameyang, Tomiyasu, Lokonga
