Competition Premier League
Start Date 4th March 2018 – 13:30 GMT
Venue Amex Stadium
Referee Kevin Friend

Arsenal need to beat Brighton on Sunday to keep any faint hopes of qualifying for Champions League football next season.

destructive defeats to Tottenham and Manchester city have seen the Gunners drop 10 points in the back of fourth place with 10 games to go.

Arsene Wenger is dealing with huge pressure on his job, not for the first time in current seasons, and anything less than a win on Sunday would all but quit the Gunners’ top-4 hopes.

Brighton are unbeaten in six games across all competitions and thumbed Swansea 4-1 last time out.
