Winger Solly March hopes Brighton & Hove Albion can claim their first away win against a big side when they travel to Arsenal on Sunday.

The Gunners have lost three successive Premier League games but March feels Albion will have to match their defensive performance at Tottenham last week when they were only beaten by Christian Eriksen’s late strike.

March starred after coming off the bench in Brighton’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday and looking ahead to Sunday’s fixture at the Emirates and the final-day clash with title-chasing Manchester City, he said: “They’re going to be Tottenham-like performances I guess.

“We’re going to be on the back foot, we know that, but we’ll try to nick a goal and defend for the 90 minutes rather than until two minutes from the end.”

March supported Arsenal as a youngster and said: “It’s a game to look forward to. They’ve had a tough time of late so hopefully we can get the crowd on their back and try to be positive.

“You never know, hopefully we can get that big away win. If we play like that (at Tottenham) and put our bodies on the line defensively, we can nick a point if not more.”
