Attacking trio Yves Bissouma, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Solly March all return for the Seagulls, with Beram Kayal and Florin Andone dropping the bench and José Izquierdo missing out through a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Stephan Lichtsteiner makes his first Arsenal appearance since February, coming in for the suspended Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Nacho Monreal also starts in place of Sead Kolasinac who drops to the bench, whilst Mesut Ozil has been named ahead of Alex Iwobi.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both start.

The pressure is off for Brighton this afternoon after their place in the Premier League was assured for a third successive season after Crystal Palace won 3-2 at Cardiff last night.

However, the Gunners need a win to maintain their hopes of a top-four finish.
