Buoyed by their win over Chelsea, Arsenal go to the Amex Stadium on Tuesday to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.

The Gunners produced a superb performance at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening to beat Chelsea 3-1, with goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka.

That win lifted some pressure off manager Mikel Arteta, who had seen his side go on a seven-game winless run in the league before that.

Heading into this game, Brighton are four points behind Arsenal, who are 15th in the standings at the moment.

Graham Potter is sure to be annoyed with their result against West Ham United on Sunday, when they played well but still couldn't come away with the three points.

Brighton led twice in the game, through Neal Maupay and Lewis Dunk, but Ben Johnson and Tomas Soucek equalized twice for West Ham for a share of the spoils at the London Stadium.
