Confirmed: Brighton and Arsenal line-ups

Here is how Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Arsenal to the Amex Stadium this weekend, having seen the FA Cup fourth round already throw up plenty of shock results.

The Championship side will know they will have to be at their best to overcome Arsene Wenger’s side, but at the same time the Gunners will have seen the Seagulls' last performance – a 3-2 victory against Ipswich Town – and known they are in for a game.

Arsenal are the current holders of this competition and their potential defence got considerably easier following the elimination of Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton, but it is all about this match for now.

Brighton have reached the fifth round of the FA Cup in three of the last four seasons but Arsenal boss Wenger has won the trophy five times already and that is a record he will want to improve while he can.
