Seagulls captain says his side might need to employ ‘the dark stuff’ to stop Wenger’s boys.
Brighton and Hove Albion captain Gordon Greer has said his side might have to resort to some underhand tactics to stop Arsenal in their FA Cup 4th Round tie.

Despite the Championship side having a reputation as one of the English second tier’s more expansive and flowing sides, Greer says the Seagulls are prepared to turn their back on their stylish playing approach.
“All football teams need that,” said Greer, reports Daily Mail. “You can’t just play football all the time. You need the dark stuff and we’ve got that and I’m sure Arsenal have as well.”
Greer might not have to luck too far into his repertoire after being labelled ‘brutal’ by Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski when two players clashed in a recent international friendly.
But despite the obvious differences in league standing and ability, Greer says he wants to face Arsenal’s very best XI.
“If you asked anyone in our dressing room, they would rather see the strongest team out there. It’s great to see how you can compete against them. It’s not something you get the opportunity to do that often.
“I watched Arsenal last week against Manchester City and they were unbelievable. But you don’t play football to play against people who are easy – you want to play against the very best players.”
