Arsenal vs Brighton team news
The Gunners will once again be without William Saliba who continues to suffer with a nagging back injury, and it seems unlikely the French defender will play again this season. The same was thought of Oleksandr Zinchenko, who will miss out here but Arteta has given a more positive update.
Mikel Arteta could persist with Jorginho in midfield, ahead of Thomas Partey, while Leandro Trossard is hoping to start in place of Gabriel Martinelli to take on his old club.
Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasua are both long-term absentees with knee issues.
Solly March will miss out after picking up a hamstring injury against Everton, with Adam Webster also ruled out. Evan Ferguson though is available.
A relatively long list of injuries includes Jeremy Sarmiento (ankle), Tariq Lamptey (knee), Adam Lallana (thigh), Jakub Moder (knee) and Joel Veltman (hamstring).
Arsenal vs Brighton prediction
The Seagulls have enjoyed an excellent season but their shock thumping by Everton underlines the potential for it all to fall apart and deny them European football at the death.
A tricky fixture run-in leaves Brighton vulnerable to becoming the latest victims of the Premier League’s sheer ruthlessness, and it is hard to see them bouncing back to defeat an Arsenal side who confidently beat Newcastle last time out.
Arsenal to win, 3-1.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
