Arsenal will be hoping to make it back-to-back Premier League victories when we take on Brighton at the Amex Stadium this evening.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is given a recall as he replaces Alexandre Lacazette up front after being named on the bench against Chelsea. Emile Smith Rowe is rewarded for his fine performance last time out as he keeps his place in the Arsenal starting eleven.

Gabriel Martinelli keeps his place in attack after impressing since his return from injury while Bukayo Saka also starts once again so we have a very exciting attacking line-up on show this evening. Nicolas Pepe and Eddie Nkektiah must settle for places on the bench along with Laca.

Gabriel is still out as he’s self isolating so Pablo Mari continues alongside Rob Holding in defence while Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney occupy the full-back positions for Arsenal.

Mo Elneny keeps his place ahead of Dani Ceballos in midfield and Granit Xhaka also starts. Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles must make-do with sub roles this evening.

These are the teams for the game:


Sanchez, Veltman, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Bernardo, Bissouma, Propper, Gross, Jahanbakhsh, Mac Allister

Subs: Steele, White, Connolly, Maupay, Trosard, Welbeck, March, Zeqiri, Molumby


Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney, Elneny, Xhaka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Saka, Aubameyang

Subs: Runarsson, Mustafi, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Ceballos, Willock, Pepe, Nketiah, Lacazette
