Predicted XI for Arsenal as they head to Falmer Stadium to face Brighton in the FA Cup…

Arsenal will be looking to continue their fine run of form with a win over Brighton, with the cup holders buoyed by their 2-0 win over Manchester City last weekend.

Here is how we think Arsenal will line up against Brighton in the FA Cup:

Wojciech Szczesny Poland

GK) Wojciech Szczesny

It’s a complete mystery who Arsene Wenger is going to field in goal, but if he doesn’t put the Szczesny back between the sticks then it would suggest he has totally lost faith in the Pole.

RB) Hector Bellerin

The Spaniard was a doubt for the game, but is expected to pass a late fitness test.

CB) Calum Chambers

The youngster has been out for a while, but could return against Brighton. If he still isn’t ready then we could see Nacho Monreal at centre-back again.

CB) Per Mertesacker

Wenger may be looking to rest either Mertesacker or Laurent Koscielny, with the German playing a huge number of games this season, while the Frenchman has been suffering with tendinitis.

LB) Kieran Gibbs

The injury prone left-back has just recovered from injury, and should be fit to start the game.
