After finally ending a wretched run of form in the Premier League on Saturday, Arsenal head into their clash against Brighton tonight hoping to pick up some further momentum.
Mikel Arteta’s side put in an impressive display to beat London rivals Chelsea 3-1, and the Spaniard will no doubt be reluctant to make too many changes to his starting line-up.
But with the games coming thick and fast, the Arsenal boss may feel like he has no choice, and with that in mind, below is a look at how the Gunners might line up against Graham Potter’s side on Tuesday evening.
In goal, Bernd Leno will be looking to add to his penalty heroics at the weekend by keeping a clean sheet, whilst the back four is also likely to remain the same.
Central midfield could be the first area in which Arteta decides to shake things up, with Dani Ceballos ready to come in for Mohamed Elneny and provide a little bit more creativity in the engine room.
Further forward, it was the youngsters who really impressed for the Gunners on Saturday, with Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe adding a bit of spark and energy, whilst Bukayo Saka added to his growing reputation with a goal.
The trio will be hoping to be given another start, but Arteta may play with a bit more caution, especially when it comes to Martinelli. The 19-year-old has only just returned to first-team action following a long spell out injured, and given the fact he played against Manchester City and Chelsea back to back, the Gunners boss may feel he needs a little breather.
That could see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang make his return on the left-hand side, with Alexandre Lacazette set to lead the line once again after scoring from the penalty spot at the weekend.
Predicted XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
