Mikel Arteta has made just one change to his side for Arsenal’s trip to Brighton with Granit Xhaka out injured.

Xhaka injured his knee during last Sunday’s 3-1 win over Tottenham and he will not be back in action until the end of December.

Arteta had the option of playing Thomas Partey in a midfield-three with Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe either side of him.

However, the Arsenal boss has instead handed Albert Sambi Lokonga more minutes, allowing him to keep the 4-2-3-1 shape that worked so well against Spurs.

Arsenal have no other injury concerns going into the weekend, which is a boost for Arteta.

Arsenal starting XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang.

Saturday 5.30pm GMT, Sky Sports

Venue: Amex Stadium

Referee: Jonathan Moss

Arsenal squad from: Leno, Ramsdale, Okonkwo; Cedric, Chambers, Gabriel, Holding, Kolasinac, Mari, Tavares, Tierney, Tomiyasu, White; Elneny, Lokonga, Maitland-Niles, Odegaard, Partey, Saka, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang, Balogun, Lacazette, Martinelli, Nketiah and Pepe.

Injured: Xhaka (knee)
