Arsenal manager Unai Emery has gone big up front once again as he starts both of his key strikers for Sunday’s clash with Brighton.
That means both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) are in the starting line-up together for a second match in a row.
In fact, they have been paired from the start in each of the last three in all competitions, including Thursday night’s win over Valencia.
With Brighton’s troubles in front of goal recently, there is also plenty of interest in Arsenal’s defence.
However, Sead Kolasinac‘s (£5.0m) involvement in the Europa League has cost him a place in the Premier League side today.
He drops to the bench for the second time in three domestic matches, with Nacho Monreal (£5.4m) occupying the left-back spot.
After coming off on Thursday night, Laurent Koscielny (£5.4m) is fit enough only for the bench with Sokratis Papastathoupolos (£5.1m) and Shkodran Mustafi (£5.4m) paired at centre-back.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles‘ (£4.4m) suspension means that Stephan Lichtsteiner (£4.5m) gets his first start since Gameweek 27.
Glenn Murray (£6.1m) leads the Brighton line this afternoon, flanked by the returning Alirez Jahanbakhsh (£6.7m) and Solly March (£4.7m).
Arsenal XI: Leno; Lichtsteiner, Mustafi, Sokratis, Monreal; Torreira, Xhaka; Mkhitaryan, Özil; Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Brighton XI: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; Groß, Stephens, Bissouma; Jahanbakhsh, Murray, March.
