  • BRIGHTON LEAD! After Sarmiento finds Mitoma deep inside the Arsenal half, the latter steps into some space and unleashes an accurate strike past Hein and into the bottom-right corner. A fine finish from the half-time substitute, and Brighton go 2-1 ahead against the run of play!

  • 3-1 BRIGHTON! A lightning break by Brighton opens up a two-goal lead at the Emirates! Gilmour slips through a tidy low ball for Lamptey to latch onto on the left side of the area, then the wing-back strides through to the six-yard box and slides the ball past Hein and into the back of the net! Are the Seagulls flying into the fourth round?
