Arsenal vs Brighton Team News: Bellerin, Ceballos, Bernardo, Izquierdo



Arsenal FC vs Brighton & Hove Albion is a match-up of two Premier League sides desperately in need of a win. The Gunners, now into life after Unai Emery and on the hunt for a new manager, are winless in their last six league fixtures. Brighton has lost their last three and now find themselves all the way down at 16th in the table.

The Seagulls are fighting to stay above the drop zone while the North London club hopes to make a push for the top four before it’s too late. In looking at the team news for this one, Arsenal will be without midfielder Dani Ceballos, who has a severe thigh injury. Hector Bellerin will be touch and go for tomorrow night, due to a tight hamstring.

In looking at how the Arsenal team shape might be for this match, one might see another start for both of the club’s outcast midfielders, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil.

Turning over to the visitors, Bernardo, Solomon March and Jose Izquierdo are all out of commission for this trip due to injury.
