The Gunners had to come from behind to beat West Ham in their first match back after the World Cup, but did just that and they sit five points clear of Manchester City.
It won’t be an easy task on New Year’s Eve though, against a Brighton side who knocked them out of the Carabao Cup earlier this season and find themselves well in the hunt for European football.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 5.30pm GMT kick-off time today, December 31, 2022.

Brighton vs Arsenal prediction
Few teams in the Premier League are playing with more confidence than Brighton, though Arsenal are one of them.
It should be an entertaining encounter, with both playing attractive football, with the Gunners potentially suffering more frustration against a Seagulls side who have regularly caused them problems in recent seasons.
