Arsenal’s Predicted XI vs Brighton with late Bukayo Saka decision: Football Sport Express.co.uk

Mikel Arteta will be hoping that his side can continue their good form against Brighton. Arsenal is aiming to continue their title charge with a victory over Brighton tonight. Express Sport takes a look at how the Gunners may line up. Arteta has favored Raya over Aaron Ramsdale so far this season and is unlikely to change that decision now.

Brighton has been strong in scoring this season, and the Brentford loanee will need to be at his best to keep the likes of Danny Welbeck and Simon Adingra at bay. In defense, Arsenal may opt for an unchanged backline with White, Saliba, Gabriel, and Zinchenko. Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jakub Kiwior provide options from the bench. Zinchenko could provide creativity by stepping into midfield when needed.

In midfield, it’s expected that Rice and Jorginho will return to Arteta’s midfield trio this weekend. Jorginho could play a crucial role in maintaining possession, which will be important for Arsenal. Arteta refused to confirm Saka’s fitness for the game, hinting that the England international might still feature in the starting XI. Gabriel Jesus may also get a chance to start, potentially at the expense of Kai Havertz, who was an unused substitute in the previous game.
