BRIGHTON VS ARSENAL TEAM NEWS
BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey missed out the draw with the Hammers due to a hamstring issue, but Potter has reassured supporters that the highly-rated youngster’s injury is not serious and he should be back soon.

Lamptey could come back in for Ben White on the right-hand side if he is deemed fit, while Davy Propper is in line for a recall to the midfield with only 48 hours for Brighton to recover.

Joel Veltman is also an option for Potter if Lamptey remains sidelined for the visit of Arteta’s men, and Adam Lallana is also likely to miss out with a groin problem.

Brighton and Hove Albion Predicted XI : Sanchez; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Veltman, Bissouma, Propper, March; Maupay, Trossard; Welbeck

 

ARSENAL

Arsenal centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes will miss this game and the Gunners’ trip to West Bromwich Albion after coming into close contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.

David Luiz and Willian are also ill but have both tested negative for COVID-19, while Thomas Partey will not recover in time for the journey to the South Coast either.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shook off a calf problem to make the bench against Chelsea and he is expected to be recalled here, while Nicolas Pepe could start on the opposite flank.

Arsenal Predicted XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Xhaka, Ceballos; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang; Lacazette

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION VS ARSENAL PREDICTION

Brighton have become somewhat of a bogey team for Arsenal since the Seagulls earned promotion to the big time, but the Gunners ought to be full of confidence after a dominant win over Chelsea. In contrast, Brighton would have been frustrated to only take one point home from their showdown with West Ham, and with Arsenal having had an extra day off to recover, we can see Arteta’s men ending their Amex hoodoo with a narrow win.

PREDICTION: BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION 1-2 ARSENAL
