Arsenal vs Brighton lineups, starting elevens, team news, how to watch

Mikel Arteta’s team will try to finish 2023 well when they welcome Brighton in Premier League action on December 17 at the Emirates Stadium.

Arteta’s entire emphasis this month will be bolstering Arsenal’s championship push, with a place in the Champions League Round of 16 already assured and no Carabao Cup responsibilities.

After resting a number of important players for the 1-1 Champions League draw away at PSV Eindhoven in midweek, Arteta will be hoping to call up some new faces when Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls travel to north London.

Arsenal vs Brighton lineups

Arteta was free to rotate in Eindhoven with qualifying for the Round of 16 already secured, and he will make additional changes ahead of this meeting, returning his big guns.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes should start at centre back, alongside Kai Havertz, with Gabriel Martinelli returning from a sickness.

The injury list for De Zerbi has not altered ahead of this encounter, but Japanese international Kaoru Mitoma has recovered from a slight knock and might start for the visitors.

The following are the probable starting lineups for this Premier League match at Emirates Stadium on December 17.

Arsenal starting 11

  • Injured: Vieira, Tomiyasu, Elneny, Timber, Partey.
  • Suspended: None

After Bukayo Saka, David Raya, and Oleksandr Zinchenko all sat on the bench at the Phillips Stadion, Arteta will be hoping that the rest will have them in fine shape against Brighton.

Due to key absences at full back, De Zerbi may need Pascal Gross and Jack Hinshelwood to cover, but Mitoma’s return to the starting lineup is a huge boost. Due to Brighton’s continued injury problems, the visitors’ bench might comprise teenagers Benicio Baker-Boaitey and Mark O’Mahony.
