Arsenal have a trip to Amex Stadium this weekend to face a tricky opponent, Brighton, who have only lost once in the Premier League this season.
A win at the Amex is not a wish, but a necessity, as every Arsenal fan expects them to defeat Brighton, who may be without their midfield engine, Yves Bissouma, and their front man, Danny Welbeck, a former Arsenal player.Arsenal, for their part, go to the game without the services of Granit Xhaka, who has been sidelined after being injured in the North London Derby.
According to how Arsenal may line up, Arteta is tipped to revert to the 4-3-3 formation, which, as seen below, will have Partey playing as the sole defensive midfielder while Emil Smith Rowe and Martin Odergaard feature as double Number 8s. From the players that started against Tottenham, Pepe may be the player to take Xhaka's spot in the starting line-up.
Can the above Arsenal starting line-up silence Brighton and elevate Arsenal from their number 10 league position? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
