Arsenal will clash heads with Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Saturday as they try to grab maximum points away from home in the Premier League. The Gunners managed to earn an impressive 3-1 win over West Ham United in the London derby recently which will give them a lot of momentum heading into this game.
Mikel Arteta will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could keep changes to a minimum for this clash. Hence, we can once again expect to see Eddie Nketiah lead the charge for the Gunners up top in the injury absence of Gabriel Jesus.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton
Aaron Ramsdale will feature in goal for the North London club after he shipped in one goal versus the Hammers in his last outing. William Saliba will function alongside Gabriel at the centre of Arsenal’s backline as they focus on stopping the Seagulls from scoring this weekend.
Ben White will continue to play as the right-back while Kieran Tierney gets another chance to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them would be eager to put in a positive display out on the wide areas.
Rob Holding and Cedric Soares will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.
Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard will make up Arteta’s midfield as they look to dominate the game at the centre of the park and create some clear-cut chances for his teammates on the attacking end of the field.
Odegaard will be the one who would carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Arsenal in the final third.
Mohamed Elneny will have to be content with a place on the bench as he awaits his chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if Arteta opts to call upon his services.
Gabriel Martinelli will operate as the left-sided wide player while Bukayo Saka looks to weave his magic from the right flank. Both of them would try to use their pace to get in behind the Brighton backline.
Eddie Nketiah will lead the line for the North London giants in the final third. He managed to get his name on the scoresheet in his last league outing, so he will be eager to impress once again in the Premier League this weekend.
Marquinhos will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the final quarter of the game if Arsenal are in need of a goal by then.
