Brighton & Hove Albion v Arsenal Live Commentary & Result, 20/06/2020, Premier League

    3′ Kolasinac goes down in the box as Brighton swing a corner into the middle, and there’s a brief pause to check on him. The left-back appears to be fine, and play resumes.

    2′ CHANCE! Guendouzi threads a lovely ball into the right channel for Pepe to race onto in behind. The Ivorian crosses for Aubameyang in the middle and the striker tries an acrobatic finish, but can’t connect and Brighton counter, only for Guendouzi to break up the attack on the edge of the Arsenal box.

    1′ We’re off! Arsenal get us underway at the Amex.

    However, Arsenal are winless in their last four away league games against Brighton (D1 L3), last winning there back in April 1981.

    Brighton remain the only side without a win in the Premier League in 2020, with the Seagulls drawing six and losing three since the turn of the year.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is forced to make five changes as he rotates his team after their defeat against Manchester City three days ago, with Holding, Pepe, Ceballos, Lacazette and Kolasinac all coming into the side. On-loan defender Pablo Mari and midfielder Granit Xhaka both miss out after suffering injuries early on in that game, while Nketiah, Willock and Tierney drop to the bench. David Luiz is suspended after being sent off against the reigning champions, while Calum Chambers, Lucas Torreira, Cedric Soares and Sokratis Papastathopoulos are all unavailable due to injury.

    Brighton boss Graham Potter makes just two changes to the side he picked in the Seagulls’ last game before football was suspended – a goalless draw with Wolves at Molineux. March and Montoya drop to the bench, with Gross and Schelotto taking their places.

    Arsenal substitutes: Emiliano Martinez, Mesut Ozil, Reiss Nelson, Zech Medley, Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, Gabriel Martinelli, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Kieran Tierney.

    Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding, Sead Kolasinac; Matteo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos, Bukayo Saka; Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

    Brighton and Hove Albion substitutes: Tariq Lamptey, Glenn Murray, Solly March, Alexis Mac Allister, Aaron Connolly, Shane Duffy, Martin Montoya, David Button, Dale Stephens.

    Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Mat Ryan; Ezequiel Schelotto, Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn; Davy Propper, Yves Bissouma; Aaron Mooy, Pascal Gross, Leandro Trossard; Neal Maupay.

    Brighton’s first game back sees them host Arsenal, with both sides desperate for points. The Seagulls are just two points clear of the relegation zone, whilst Arsenal are eight adrift of the top four and lost 3-0 to Manchester City last time out.
