The north London side received a lot of accolades for their outstanding performance against Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates last Saturday when they won 3-1.
Arsenal will now travel to the south coast in the hopes of continuing their recent strong form. For the first time since April 1981, Arsenal is attempting to win back-to-back away league games against Brighton.
Former Arsenal and England player Merson believes the Gunners have "struck a corner" in their season and are on track to win three points against the Seagulls.
Arsenal, who ended eighth in the Premier League last season and without winning a trophy, began the weekend in 10th place in the table, with Brighton in sixth place ahead of them.
The Seagulls have had a solid start to the new season, and they are only a point behind league leaders Liverpool FC heading into Saturday's match against Arsenal.
Here is how Arsenal should lineup against Brighton:
Goalkeeper and defenders:
At the moment, Aaron Ramsdale is Arsenal's indisputable No. 1. In his first four games for the Gunners, the Englishman only gave up one goal, and he will likely start on Saturday.
At each end of the defence, Kierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu will start. Nicely such a short time, the Japanese right-back appears to have adjusted in at his new club.
Gabriel has been an absolute tank for the Gunners in the middle of the backline, and he will start at centre-back with Englishman Ben White.
Thomas Partey is the defensive cornerstone for Arsenal, and the Ghanaian will be hoping to keep his good form going. He will be joined by Odegaard, who was relatively unknown until the Burnley game. Odegaard's performances against Burnley and Spurs, on the other hand, painted a picture of him as the player who keeps the midfield ticking.
After returning from suspension, Granit Xhaka put in a strong performance against Spurs. However, he suffered an injury in the Derby and will now have to sit out for a long time. Albert Sambi Lokonga will take his place immediately and hope to maintain the excellent form that he has shown since arriving in England.
Smith, Emile Rowe had a quiet start to the season, but in the North London Derby, he shattered all the restraints around him. He will begin the attack on the left side of the field.
On Sunday, club captain Aubameyang scored, and the Gabonese striker will be looking to continue his scoring form against the Seagulls.
Bukayo Saka will start on the right side of the attack after the young Englishman recently kept Nicolas Pepe out of the squad. The Ivorian, on the other hand, will be hoping to ruffle some feathers from the bench against a sluggish Brighton defence.
