After a successful win during Boxing Day, Arsenal will be looking to build on their win as they travel to Falmer Stadium to take on Brighton. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 9 pm.
In contrast, the hosts head into the match following a 2-2 draw to West Ham in which Brighton was pegged back by the capital outfit twice on Sunday.
The Seagulls traveled to a high-flying West Ham side with hopes of ending a five winless run in the Premier League, with their position become more precautious in the league. Graham Potter’s side could not grab the critical three points as they played out a 2-2 draw with the Hammers on Sunday.
The one point picked up on Sunday means the Seagulls are still hovering above the dotted line. However, Potter managed to climb up above Burnley into 16th after Sean Dyche fell against Leeds United.
Arsenal marked an exciting performance at Emirates against Chelsea. Most fans second-guessed the starting XI with a splash of youth, including Martinelli, Saka, Smith Rowe, and Willock. However, it ended up paying off with Saka pulling a stunner with Rowe given the assist.
The win was a sigh of relief for Arteta, who has come under heavy scrutiny over the recent performances. The win marks the first win in December for the Gunners. Falmer Stadium has been a difficult ground for the Gunners over the past.
