Arsenal Preview

The Europa League may not be where Arsenal intend to play, but their results so far suggest no lack of motivation to get the job done, even across the other side of Europe. It was an entertaining game in Belarus, with the Gunners going 3-0 up inside 25 minutes through two Theo Walcott efforts and Rob Holding’s first goal for the club, with Mirko Ivanic making it 3-1 before the break. Olivier Giroud’s second-half penalty made it 100 goals for the Gunners for the Frenchman, and although Mikhail Gordeychuk pulled another one back for the hosts, Arsenal held on to make it two wins from two in the Europa League. With five wins and a draw from their last six matches in all competitions, there has been a definite response to their heavy defeat at Liverpool at the end of August, with the team looking especially solid in the Premier League. After leaking four at Anfield, the Gunners have since kept three clean sheets on the bounce and were particularly impressive away at Chelsea, while also defeating Bournemouth and West Brom 3-0 and 2-0 respectively. With four goals from six Premier League appearances, Alexandre Lacazette has made an impressive start to life at Arsenal and will be targeting more goals here.

Arsenal Team News

Arsenal will be without Calum Chambers (hip), Francis Coquelin (hamstring), Santi Cazorla (achilles) and Danny Welbeck (groin) through injury for this one.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Brighton bounced back from their Bournemouth woes last weekend, as they defeated fellow newly-promoted Newcastle United 1-0 at the Amex Stadium to move up to 13th in the Premier League table. The game’s only goal came in the 51st minute courtesy of striker Tomer Hemed, who produced a neat finish from Dale Stephens’ ball across the face of goal that ultimately proved to hand the Seagulls the three points. Despite putting apparent pressure on their opponents, at no point did Newcastle ever really threaten for large portions of the game, as they struggled to break down their stubborn opponents. Chris Hughton places a lot of emphasis on organisation in his teams and would’ve been delighted to see his side keep their first home clean sheet of the season against the Magpies - their second of the season in total. They have struggled away from home in the early stages of the season, taking just one point from a possible nine thus far, with this undoubtedly being their biggest test on the road so far. Brighton have faced Arsenal twice in the previous four years, with both games coming in the FA Cup at the Amex and each ended with the Gunners running out 3-2 winners.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News

Tomer Hemed serves the first of a three-match ban this weekend, while Steve Sidwell (back) and Biram Kayal (broken leg) are both ruled out through injury.
