For Arsenal, after a shaky start to the new premier League season, they have recorded three consecutive league victories, including the North London derby last weekend against Tottenham Hotspur. They are in-form at the moment and will test Brighton's credentials to maintain a their current standing in the Premier League.

Likely Formations To Be Deployed By Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta opted for a 4-1-4-1 formation against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, with Thomas Partey as the lone anchor man In the deep Midfield. Against Brighton Hove Albion on Saturday, he should opt for a more flexible 4-1-2-1-2 formation.

Son's goal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend denied Aaron Ramsdale the chance to keep three consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League, and he is likely to continue between the sticks ahead of Bernd Leno. At the back four, the central defence partnership of Benjamin White and Gabriel Magalhaes should continue, with Kieran Tierney starting from the left side defence while TakehiroTomiyasu in the right side. Thomas Partey in the holding midfield role alongside Lokonga and Martin Odegaard in the central Midfield areas, while Emile Smith Rowe should start in the No.10 role. In a two man forward line, Bukayo Saka should operate from the right side forward while Aubemeyang, who has five goals in his last five matches in all competitions, should start from the left side forward.

Predicted Match Result

The Seagulls may have started the season well but against an in-form Arsenal, they will be rearing to show their mental credentials to pit their wits against the big boys in the Premier League. However, it is Arsenal are more likely to triumph on Saturday Evening, with Aubemeyang, Saka and Lacazette all likely to get on the score sheet.
