Arsenal’s encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion will begin in a few minutes from now and their lineup has just been released with Mikel Arteta selecting a squad that he believes will be able to get him all the three points. Arsenal will be eager to win this game to make it two league wins in a space of three days.
ARSENAL STARTING ELEVEN TO FACE BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION
Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney, Xhaka, Elneny, Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Aubameyang
Runnarson, Mustafi, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Ceballos, Willock, Pepe, Nketiah, Lacazette
Thomas Partey will once again not be involved in today’s game as he is yet to be ready for selection but his recovery is going well so far as he has begun training outside on the grass. David Luiz and Willian are also not in the squad as they have an illness but they will be back at the start of next year as per the latest injury update released by the club.
Arsenal are still in the bottom half of the Premier League table and so Mikel Arteta will hope to win today’s game so that they can begin their climb up the table before the start of the new year and to of course avoid getting sacked since rumours linking the recently sacked Paris Saint Germain boss Thomas Tuchel to a move to the North Londoners have begun getting reported.
