Arsenal v Brighton – Confirmed lineups – Wenger suffers major blow as midfield ace ruled out
Arsenal take on a newly promoted Brighton in the Premier League today as they look to register back-to-back wins.

The Gunners host Brighton at the Emirates stadium today while kick-off is scheduled for 12:00 (GMT).
Arsene Wenger is unable to call upon star playmaker Mesut Ozil due to a knee injury. The Germany international hasn’t started a game for the Gunners in over two weeks.
Alexis Sanchez keeps his place in the starting lineup while Alex Iwobi comes on in place of an injured Danny Welbeck.
The Gunners can move up into joint fourth place today if they register a win over Brighton.
