The Seagulls could be safe by the time the game kicks off if Cardiff lose at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, or they could be in need of points to seal Premier League survival.

The Seagulls drew 1-1 at home to Newcastle in their last game, ending a run of 735 minutes without a goal in the process.

Arsenal have lost their last three Premier League matches, conceding three in defeats to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester.

What time does Arsenal v Brighton kick off?

The game gets underway from the Emirates at 4.30pm.

Is the game on TV?

Yes, the match will be live on Sky Sports Premier League. Coverage begins at 4.15pm, following Manchester United's game at Huddersfield.

What’s the team news?

The Gunners host Valencia in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday, so manager Unai Emery will hope all of his squad come through that game unscathed.

Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Hector Bellerin (knee), Rob Holding (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Denis Suarez (groin).

Ainsley Maitland-Miles will miss the game through suspension after being sent off in Arsenal's 3-0 defeat at Leicester on Sunday.

Brighton midfielder Davy Propper is again likely to miss out with the hamstring injury he sustained at Wolves a couple of weeks ago.

Beram Kayal (hamstring) could also be out after going off early in the second half of Albion's 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday. Yves Bissouma will come into the starting line-up if Kayal is not fit.

Solly March, an Arsenal fan growing up, could come into the starting line-up after impressing off the bench against Newcastle.

Anthony Knockaert will also be pushing for a start after returning to action as a second half substitute against Newcastle following a three-game suspension.

Who is the referee?

Anthony Taylor will take charge of the match.

Taylor has officiated the most games in the top flight this season - 30 - and has shown 94 yellow cards and just one red.

He has refereed three Albion league matches this campaign, the 2-2 draw at Southampton, 1-0 victory at home to Wolves and the 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Amex.

He was also in charge for Brighton's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Sunday's game kicks-off at the Emirates at 4.30pm and Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn will be the assistant referees, with Graham Scott the fourth official.

What are the odds?

Arsenal are strong favourites to win with PaddyPower and are priced at 1/3 to claim all three points.

The draw is 7/2 and a Brighton victory is 8/1.

A repeat of the 1-1 draw at the Amex earlier this season is 8/1, while a 0-0 draw is 13/1.

Arsenal beat Brighton 2-0 at the Emirates last season and that scoreline is priced at 11/2, while a 3-0 win is 8/1 and 3-1 is 9/1.

Albion to claim a 1-0 win is 22/1, 2-0 is 40/1 and 2-1 is 20/1.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is favourite to score first at 13/5 and is 8/11 to net anytime.

Alexandre Lacazette is 3/1 and 5/6 respectively, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan 5/1 and 6/4 and Mesut Ozil 15/2 and 13/5.

Albion forward Glenn Murray is 8/1 to open the scoring and 12/5 to net anytime. Florin Andone is 9/1 and 3/1 respectively, with Pascal Gross 19/1 and 7/1.
