Greeting readers of SunSport. I hope you are all well and you have had a good Saturday so far.
I want everyone to close their eyes and picture themselves being in Brighton on a sunny Saturday, ice-ring doughnut in one hand and a beverage of your choice in the other.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
Well there are two things for certain.
One, you are not there and two, it’s not a sunny day in Brighton by any means, in fact it’s the complete the opposite.
But fortunately that will not stop our live coverage this afternoon which will be the Gunners taking on Brighton in the South Cosst at the Amex Stadium.
Seagulls, I take my hats off to you guys, what a start you have had.
With four wins in their first six games, they find themselves in the European spots and dare I say it, only two points off current league leaders Cheslea.
And if Graham Potter’s men had beaten Crystal Palace last Monday, they could have jumped to the top of the charts but a 95th minute equaliser from Neal Maupay, enabled them to scrape a 1-1 draw instead.
As for Arsenal, the North London outfit have really started to turn their fortunes around after losing their opening three Premier League fixtures.
According to the gaffer, the victories against Norwich and Burnley were building blocks but the convincing 3-1 triumph over their bitter North London rivals Spurs is now lift off.
Fancy seeing if the Gunners can back their mangers words this afternoon?
Well stick around because coming up are some quotes, statistics and team news, all before the main event at 17:30pm UK time.
