Brighton travel to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday as the Seagulls look to end their seven-match winless run.

Graham Potter's men were once again counting the cost of wastefulness infront of goal in their 0-0 draw with Norwich last time out, with the stalemate making it just one win from their last twelve games for the Seagulls.

The dismal run of form has seen Brighton slip to 13th in the table after a promising start to the campaign, although only three points separates the Seagulls and Crystal Palace in 9th.

Here's how they could lineup this weekend.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - Has come under fire for a dip in form this season, but Brighton have bigger worries in the team.

Joel Veltman (RB) - The Dutchman's ability to tuck inside allows Cucurella to motor forward on the opposite flank.

Shane Duffy (CB) - The Republic of Ireland international has been used sparingly in a three-man defence, but he has been given the nod when Potter has went to a back four.

Lewis Dunk (CB) - Rarely gives the ball away, but he is suffering in the absence of Adam Webster.

Marc Cucurella (LB) - An all-action full back, usually at his most dangerous when he can get to the byline to deliver.

2. Midfielders

Pascal Gross (CM) - The Seagulls' most consistent midfielder both on and off the ball.

Yves Bissouma (CM) - His athleticism in midfield will be critical against an Arsenal side who like to dominate the ball.

Alexis Mac Allister (CM) - Has finally nailed down a starting berth under Potter after a period of substitute appearances.

3. Forwards

Solly March (RW) - Has become something of a utility man under Potter, but his ability to carry the ball over long distances is invaluable.

Neal Maupay (ST) - His penalty miss last time out made it seven games without a goal for the Frenchman.

Leandro Trossard (LW) - The Belgian's goal drought goals all the way back to Boxing Day in the 2-0 win over Brentford.
