Confirmed line-ups: Arsenal vs Brighton: Torreira and Bellerin start

By on December 5, 2019

Freddie Ljungberg needs to get Arsenal back to winning ways when we take on Brighton at the Emirates Stadium this evening.

The teams are in and Bernd Leno retains his place in goal while Hector Bellerin is recalled at right-back. Sokratis also comes back into the side with Shkodran Mustafi making way. Kieran Tierney has to settle for a place on the bench once again.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang keeps his place in the Arsenal attack after scoring a brace against Norwich while Alexandre Lacazette also starts but Nicolas Pepe has to make do with a place among the substitutes.

Lucas Torreira comes in to the midfield with Matteo Guendouzi making way. Granit Xhaka and Joe Willock keep their places along with Mesut Ozil.

This certainly wouldn’t have been my preferred line-up but let’s hope Freddie has got his team selection right this time. As he got it badly wrong at Norwich.

Here are the confirmed line-ups


Leno, Bellerin, David Luiz, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Torreira, Xhaka, Willock, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette

Subs: Tierney, Pepe, Chambers, Nelson, Martinez, Guendouzi, Martinelli


Ryan, Alzate, Dunk, Webster, Burn, Stephens, Propper, Gross, Mooy, Maupay, Connolly

Subs: Button, Duffy, Bernardo, Montoya, Bissouma, Trossard, Murray
