The teams are coming out onto the pitch, with kick off rapidly approaching.
Bukayo Saka struggled a little in the early stages of the season when he deployed on the left flank and told to drift inside. However, after reverting to the right flank, he was excellent against Tottenham. The England international is set to start on the right again today, which could bring the best out of him.
This is a big game for Ben White, with the defender facing Brighton for the first time since his £50million move to Arsenal. Will he be able to deal with the threat of Neal Maupay?
Manchester United 1-1 Everton
Burnley 0-0 Norwich
Chelsea 3-1 Southampton
Leeds 1-0 Watford
Wolves 2-1 Newcastle
Here are the odds for the game, courtesy of Betfair:
Brighton to win – 21/10
Arsenal to win – 7/5
Draw – 9/4
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score 13/8
Neal Maupay to score 15/8
Arsenal endured a very difficult start to the season but they have responded in impressive fashion, especially in the way they dispatched of rivals Tottenham last weekend. This evening’s clash against Brighton is unlikely to be straightforward, however, with Graham Potter’s side having started the campaign well.
Arsenal beat Brighton home and away last season but prior to that Brighton were unbeaten in five games against the Gunners.
Brighton bring in Jakub Moder for the injured Danny Welbeck.
Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka is out injured for Arsenal so Albert Sambi Lokonga comes into the side.
