Arsenal make the short trip to the south coast for a Premier League Boxing Day clash with Brighton.

The Gunners will be aiming to improve their away performances, with Unai Emery's side having won just four of their road trips in the top-flight so far.

Brighton boast a relatively strong record at the Amex Stadium where they have only lost two league games in the current campaign.

The visitors meanwhile are priced at 8/11 (1.73) for what would be only their sixth away win in the Premier League in 2018 with the draw priced at 14/5 (3.80)

Team news

Arsenal have a number of injuries to contend with as Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan continue to be absent. In defence Sead Kolasinac, Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi are all likely to be unavailble.

Hector Bellerin is pushing for a return, although the game may come too soon for the Spaniard. Brighton are likely to be without wingers Jose Izquierdo and Alireza Jahanbakhsh. 

Preview

The Gunners' matches in the Premier League this term have averaged 3.56 goals, the highest in the division. Only Manchester City have scored more goals than the visitors, yet their defensive record of 24 goals conceded in 18 games is bettered by seven sides.
