Arsenal vs Brighton preview

Arsenal take on Brighton at the Emirates today, looking to keep up the pressure at the top of the table and their title hopes alive. Meanwhile, the visitors need another win after a mixed run of form.

The Gunners lost to Aston Villa last time out in the league, but go into the weekend in second place, a point behind table-toppers Liverpool. They have shown a mix of both flair and grit this season to get there and will likely need more of the latter against a Seagulls side that can always cause problems.

Both teams played European football mid-week, but Mikel Arteta’s side has had over 48 hours extra of recovery time. The Gunners' boss was able to rest players as they were guaranteed to win their Champions League group. Brighton, meanwhile, had to battle to win their Europa League group on Thursday night. A trip to the capital on such a short turnaround will be tough, and they don't tend to do that well after European nights.

Gabriel Martinelli has recovered from illness to take part for Arsenal. Bukayo Saka was rested against PSV Eindhoven but is also fine to take part. Seagulls boss Roberto De Zerbi is still without Ansu Fati and will be for the foreseeable future.

Here's how they line up:

Arsenal: Raya, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Rice, Odegaard, Havertz, Saka, Martinelli, Jesus

Brighton: Verbruggen, Veltman, Van Hecke, Dunk, Milner, Gilmour, Gross, Adingra, Lallana, Mitoma, Ferguson

USA Network

Soccer fans can watch Arsenal vs Brighton exclusively on USA Network in the US, with kick-off set for 9am ET / 6am PT this morning.

NBC is the official US broadcaster for EPL soccer this season. Peacock TV live streams the vast majority of games, but some fixtures – like Arsenal vs Brighton – are shown on USA Network or NBC instead.

How to watch Arsenal vs Brighton without cable

OTT streaming service Sling TV is reasonably priced and includes both USA Network and NBC in select markets, as part of its Sling Blue package. The usual cost is from $40 a month, but if you're new to the service you can get your first month half-price.

Another over-the-top streaming service that includes USA Network and NBC in select markets is Fubo. It's a much more comprehensive cable replacement and carries more than 100 channels including Fox, CBS and ESPN.

Prices start at $74.99 a month after a FREE FuboTV trial

If you subscribe to Sling or Fubo and find yourself unable to access coverage because you're out of the country, consider using a VPN as outlined below. Try ExpressVPN with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

How to watch Arsenal vs Brighton from outside your country

We've set out below how you can live stream Arsenal vs Brighton in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to watch the game like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking, best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also really easy to use.
