Arsenal vs Brighton LIVE: Team news confirmed as Tavares out and Martinelli starts
welcome to football.londonLive coverage of Arsenal vs Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium. It’s officially a new game week which means the Gunners have a great opportunity to make amends for what was an unfortunate setback at Selhurst Park on Monday.
Despite the recent upset, Mikel Arteta’s men remain in a strong position to secure Champions League qualification and will know that a win today puts them back on track.
However, they will have to do the job without Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey. The club announced on Tuesday that Tierney is likely to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery for a knee problem, while Arteta revealed Partey is expected to ‘be out for a few weeks’ with a ‘significant’ injury.
It’s certainly been a week to forget for Arsenal fans so far, but let’s hope the mood changes this afternoon. Follow all the game action below with Kaya Kaynak and Chris Davison bringing you every moment until kick-off at 3pm BST.
