What channel is Brighton v Arsenal on? Kick off time and latest team news- 20 June 2020

Can Arsenal reignite their search for a European spot away at battling Brighton?

Arsenal Brighton

Arsenal head to the Amex Stadium this afternoon looking to bounce back from a humbling 3-0 defeat to Manchester City earlier this week.


The Gunners suffered two early injuries in that clash, with Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari being forced off, while David Luiz was shown a red card.

It means they are now languishing even further behind the top four, with the season threatening to fizzle out ahead of their remaining Premier League fixtures.

They must now contend with a Brighton side that are nervously looking over their shoulders at the drop zone.

The Seagulls spent the coronavirus break in 16th place in the Premier League with Graham Potter tasked with securing top-flight football again for next season.

Brighton v Arsenal team news

Brighton: Midfielder Steven Alzate may not be risked for Saturday’s game as boss Potter looks to ‘manage’ the Colombian’s problematic groin injury through the rest of the season.

Potter is definitely without Jose Izquierdo, and there are worries he may not play for the Seagulls again. Other than that, the manager has the pick of his squad.

Arsenal: Luiz is suspended for the game after being sent off against City. There are concerns over the fitness of Xhaka and Mari too.

Whether or not Gunners boss Mikel Arteta brings Mesut Ozil back into the fold we will have to wait and see. Ozil was not in the squad on Wednesday night, which Arteta said was due to ‘tactical reasons’.

Our prediction: Brighton v Arsenal

Arsenal were outplayed by City just four days ago, suffered two fresh injuries and a suspension. This couldn’t play more into Brighton’s hands.

The cliche suggests Arsenal will come out all-guns-blazing in an effort to right the wrongs of Wednesday night. But over the past decade or so Arsenal fans have become used to the malaise that can hang over the club when things aren’t going well – and Saturday could witness another insipid performance.

Potter will be hoping to secure at least a point in this clash, as the Seagulls look to climb away from the drop zone.

Our prediction: Brighton 1-1 Arsenal
