Arsenal Lineup as Sambi Lokonga starts and Nicolas Pepe misses out against Brighton


The Gunners writers for shakezsports.com picks the Lineup Mikel Arteta should name for the PL game against Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners are riding a rush of force in front of the subsequent global break of the period.

After a lethargic beginning to the mission which saw the north Londoners sitting lower part of the PL table a month prior, three straight victories has seen them ascend into the best 10.

Besides, triumph over the League One side AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the Carabao Cup made it an ideal September for the Emirates outfit yet would they be able to keep up with the triumphant inclination when they face Brighton on Saturday evening?

Certainty ought to be high after last end of the week’s 3-1 success in the Derby against Spurs and Arsenal recorded a twofold over the Seagulls last season.

In any case, Potter’s side have begun the mission emphatically.

Maupay’s equalizer at the last minute against Palace on Monday night has guaranteed that Brighton will go into the global break above the Gunners in the table regardless of whether they lose.

However, the motivating force for the north Londoners is that a fourth consecutive PL win will see them exploit dropped focuses in the Liverpool and City games on Sunday evening.

What’s more, fortunately beside Xhaka, each senior team player is accessible for choice which will introduce Arteta with a choice migraine in front of naming his setup to confront the Seagulls.

Fortunately also for the Gunners boss shakezsports.com Gunners writers Kaynak and Daniel Woods are available to give their say on who should begin against Brighton.

Kaynak’s Gunners Lineup

The shortfall of Xhaka changes everything with regards to choice for the game against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Well not exactly everything, concerning me the back five of Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Magalhaes and Tierney would remain precisely something very similar.

The midfield however, would be somewhat unique. I would return to the 4-3-3 set up that functioned admirably against Norwich as well as Burnley yet there would be a couple of changes for me.

First and foremost I’d prefer to keep Smith Rowe on the left wing and Saka on the right, since they played so well there in the Derby win.

That would mean Pepe would be left out of the crew for me, with Odegaard moving over to the right of the midfield triplet and Sambi Lokonga coming in to play the ‘Granit Xhaka job’ on the left.

This would all be on the side of Aubameyang up top, who I’m trusting can have as great a game as he did against Tottenham Hotspurs.

Kaynak’s Arsenal XI versus Brighton: Aaron Ramsdale; Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, Kieran Tierney; Thomas Partey; Martin Odegaard, Sambi Lokonga; Bukayo Saka, Pierre-emerick Aubameyang, Emile Smith Rowe

Daniel Woods’ Arsenal Lineup against Brighton

The Gunners group essentially picks itself following three straight successes in the PL, albeit one implemented nonattendance implies Arteta has an important choice to make.

Xhaka’s physical issue has come at an awful time, however, the Gunners boss has choices as far as staff and arrangements to guarantee that the midfielder’s experience uninvolved isn’t excessively exorbitant.

Having returned to 4-2-3-1 against Tottenham Hotspurs, I can see Mikel Arteta staying with it particularly thinking about how well the front four clicked.

That would mean the one situation available to all is close by Partey in the twofold turn before an unaltered back four.

I’d go with Maitland-Niles over Lokonga as the Hale End graduate at long last gets an opportunity to show what he can do in the center.

Aubameyang gets approval to lead the line, while Saka’s exhibition on the conservative is awful information for Pepe’s odds of a prompt review.

Daniel Woods’ Arsenal XI versus Brighton: Aaron Ramsdale; Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, Kieran Tierney; Thomas Partey, Ainsley Maitland-Niles; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith Rowe; Pierre-emerick Aubameyang
