Arsenal will visit the Amex on the back of two straight league defeats, one of them coming against their bitter rivals Spurs.
The Gunners are currently in a horrid run of form with four defeats over their last six matches. One of which came against Swansea, whom Brighton completely sailed past last week.
The Seagulls have now completed four games unbeaten in the league, winning two of them, and building a safe cushion between themselves and the bottom three.
Hughton’s men will want to resume where they left last Saturday and will be eager to beat Arsenal for the first time in 35 years – with the previous one being a 1-0 victory in 1982/1983 season.
Brighton currently sit 12th in the league table with 31 points, four points over the relegation zone and nine points away from the theoretical minimum number of points to survive the drop.
Here is how we expect Albion to line up…
GK - Mathew Ryan
Will be tested properly on Sunday.
RB - Ezequiel Schelotto
Has been solid at the back and swift coming forward.
CB - Shane Duffy
A definite starter.
CB - Lewis Dunk
Captain and leader.
LB - Gaetan Bong
Just signed a new contract. Great passing along the left flank with Jose Izquierdo last week.
RM - Anthony Knockaert
Fine display against Swansea capped by a beautiful goal.
CM - Dale Stephens
Hardworking midfielder, will have his hands full on Sunday.
CM - Davy Propper
Helps to do the “dirty job” behind Pascal Gross, but also good on the build up.
LM - Jose Izquierdo
The man in form has been unstoppable down the left flank, was no match for Swansea.
CAM - Pascal Gross
His vision and passing skills can make goals. He created more chances than any other player in the Premier League during the month of February.
ST - Glenn Murray
In the best form of his life, has 10 league goals to his tally. Some even think that Gareth Southgate should be paying attention.
