Arsenal will entertain Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night as both teams looked to get the better of each other in the third round of the EFL Cup. The Gunners managed to earn a 1-0 win over Chelsea recently. Similarly, the Seagulls managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Arsenal Vs Brighton: Talking Tactics

Mikel Arteta will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game and could ask his players to dominate the ball and orchestrate a few meaningful chances to find the back of the net.

Roberto De Zerbi will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation as well and might instruct his men to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before trying to expose the home team’s defensive weaknesses on the counter.

Team News


Emile Smith Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu will miss this clash due to injuries. Otherwise, Arteta has a fully fit squad to choose from but is expected to rest most of his first team stars in midweek.

Arsenal Predicted XI

Turner; Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Elneny, Lokonga; Marquinhos, Vieira, Nelson; Nketiah

Jakub Moder will be sidelined for this contest because of an injury. Otherwise, Brighton are injury-free heading into this cup clash on the road.

Brighton Predicted XI

Steele; Veltman, Dunk, Colwill; Lamptey, Caicedo, Gilmour, Mitoma; March, Welbeck, Trossard

Key Men


Reiss Nelson and Marquinhos will be given the freedom to express themselves in the Brighton half and cause a lot of problems for the opposition defenders out on the flanks.

Both Gabriel and Rob Holding need to be at the top of their game if the Gunners want to keep a clean sheet and pick up a convincing win this Wednesday night.


Danny Welbeck and Leandro Trossard will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Seagulls in the final third. Welbeck will be the one who would try to use his pace to cause some headaches for the Arsenal centre-backs.

Billy Gilmour will be given the responsibility to link up the defence with the attack, so he has to find a way to get stuck in with a few tackles and provide some decent service to his teammates up top on the counter.
