ARSENAL make the short journey to the South Coast as they travel to face Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
The Gunners restarted their season with a tough game against defending champions Man City, but were below-par a disappointing 3-0 defeat.

Brighton memorably beat Arsenal at the Emirates earlier in the season, with Neal Maupay nodding in a late winner.
But the Seagulls have yet to win in 2020 and are looking over their shoulder with just nine Premier League games left to play.

After his red card against Man City, David Luiz will play no part in this one due to suspension.
Granit Xhaka is out with an ankle injury picked up in the Etihad defeat, while Pablo Mari will reportedly miss the remainder of the campaign.
Lucas Torreira could return though in a welcome boost for Arteta.
