Brighton – Arsenal: Arsenal looks to build off a big win when it pays a Tuesday visit to Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium (start time 1pm ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
The Gunners beat Chelsea on Saturday to snap a seven-match Premier League winless run, while Brighton will be barely more than 48 hours away from a match with West Ham.
Brighton’s Neal Maupay earned the ire of the Gunners when he said Arsenal “needed to learn humility” after a 2-1 decision this summer, one that saw AFC goalkeeper Bernd Leno injured following a nudge from the French striker.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this pairing of opposites down south, as two sides with long memories of a feisty summer meeting tangle in Brighton.

Arsenal is still waiting on Thomas Partey, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was fit for the bench versus Chelsea. Willian, David Luiz, and Gabriel Magalhaes missed the Chelsea match due to COVID-19 protocols, and Gabriel is certainly out while self-isolating.

Arsenal normally would be preferred due to reputation and squad depth but both have taken a hit this season. That said, the lack of rest will ding the Seagulls quite a bit in a close match. Brighton 1-2 Arsenal.
