What is the team news?

Ben White looks set to make his first return to the Amex since leaving Brighton for Arsenal.

The England international should line up alongside Gabriel Magalhaes at the heart of the Arsenal defence – just as they did for the North London Derby win last weekend.

Mikel Arteta said: "I've been very impressed with how Ben handles the pressure and how he's handled the situation of coming through the Euros and paying the big fee and the composure and the calmness that he's shown.

"And as well, the willingness to learn, to improve, because he's realised that he is still really young, still in the development process and there are things that he can improve."

    Here is part two of Nicolas Pepe’s brace from the last time Brighton took an Arsenal in the Premier League.

    The Ivorian rubbed salt into the wounds with this coolly dispatched finish.

    Brighton should be encouraged by today’s encounter being at the Amex Stadium because the last time the Seagulls took on Arsenal at the Emirates, it wasn’t a happy hunting ground.

    A brilliant second half brace from Nicolas Pepe helped the Gunners to secure all three points in North London on the final day of last season.

    Arsenal were firmly on top from the first whistle and had it not been for narrowly missed effort and the strong right hand of Seagulls goalkeeper Roberto Sanchez, Thomas Partey would have had himself a brace in the early stages of the first 45.

    Rob Holding then believed he flicked the ball in the back of the net shortly after following Martin Odegaard’s corner but the referee never received a notification on his watch which meant that the ball didn’t cross the line.

    And Arsenal’s rock at the back Gabriel thought his floated header was going to crash in the goal just before half-time but the cross-bar denied him of a third goal in his debut season.

    However, that never threw Arteta’s men off because five minutes after the interval, a right-footed low drive from Pepe put Arsenal ahead.

    His second then came a little over ten minutes later when the £72 million man cut inside from the right hand side and perfectly placed his shot past Sanchez.

    Yves Bissouma did come close to pulling one back for the visitors, but his shot whistled past Bernd Leno’s post.

    Which meant that for a third successive season, Brighton lost their final fixture of the campaign.

    In 1997, Brighton said a fitting goodbye to former stadium Goldstone where they finally defeated Doncaster Rovers 1-0 after six consecutive defeats against the South Yorkshire club.

    Two years later the club would return as tenants of the Withdean Stadium which would eventually receive a capacity upgrade once Brighton were promoted the Division One (current name – EFL Championship)

    Fast forward to 31 May 2011, Brighton football club were officially handed over the keys to a finished project which originally went by the name of the Falmer Stadium.

    And now in 2021, for sponsorship reasoning, it is commonly known as the American Express Community Stadium (AMEX), the home of a now fully established Premier League team.

    Even in the rain, she’s a beauty.

    Greeting readers of SunSport. I hope you are all well and you have had a good Saturday so far.

    I want everyone to close their eyes and picture themselves being in Brighton on a sunny Saturday, ice-ring doughnut in one hand and a beverage of your choice in the other.

    Sounds good doesn’t it?

    Well there are two things for certain.

    One, you are not there and two, it’s not a sunny day in Brighton by any means, in fact it’s the complete the opposite.

    But fortunately that will not stop our live coverage this afternoon which will be the Gunners taking on Brighton in the South Cosst at the Amex Stadium.

    Seagulls, I take my hats off to you guys, what a start you have had.

    With four wins in their first six games, they find themselves in the European spots and dare I say it, only two points off current league leaders Cheslea.

    And if Graham Potter’s men had beaten Crystal Palace last Monday, they could have jumped to the top of the charts but a 95th minute equaliser from Neal Maupay, enabled them to scrape a 1-1 draw instead.

    As for Arsenal, the North London outfit have really started to turn their fortunes around after losing their opening three Premier League fixtures.

    According to the gaffer, the victories against Norwich and Burnley were building blocks but the convincing 3-1 triumph over their bitter North London rivals Spurs is now lift off.

    Fancy seeing if the Gunners can back their mangers words this afternoon?

    Well stick around because coming up are some quotes, statistics and team news, all before the main event at 17:30pm UK time.
