In just a few minutes' time, Arsenal will be active and ready for action in the English Premier League today when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Emirates Stadium in what looks to be an intense game of football. The Gunners are still very much in the race for the Premier League title this season and will be looking forward to defeating Brighton in order to mount pressure on table-toppers Manchester City.
The Seagulls are also no pushovers in the competition as they have what it takes to condemn Arsenal to a shocking defeat.
Arsenal's starting lineup for this game have officially been released as Mikel Arteta brought out his best possible team to grind out the result against Brighton.
Well, I believe there are two mistakes the Spanish Manager made in his starting lineup that might make Arsenal lose to Brighton in this game. Let's take a look.
1, Refusing To Start Thomas Partey.
The Ghanaian International was benched by Mikel Arteta for Arsenal in another Premier League game today. The Spanish Manager stuck with using Jorginho in the defensive midfield position which could create problems for the Arsenal team in this game. We all know Brighton to be an aggressive attacking side and could pose a lot of threat at Arsenal's defensive area. Instead of using a sluggish Jorginho in that position, Thomas Partey could have been a better option to help assist the team's defense against the Seagulls.
2, Refusing To Bench Gabriel Jesus.
Gabriel Jesus hasn't really been at his best performance for Arsenal recently. The Brazilian International is one player who Arsenal can't rely on to get them goals in important matches of this kind. His poor finishing in front of goal is a major flaw in his performance and this could affect Arsenal attacking-wise against Brighton. Edward Nketiah would have been a better option for the Gunners.
