Welcome to the Emirates Stadium for our live coverage of this English Premiership clash between Arsenal and Brighton and Hove Albion.
Kick-off! We are underway here in North London, as referee Graham Scott gets us going.
Oh Dear! Leno and David Luiz do not communicate properly and Connolly almost gets in with an early goal. CLOSE!
It has been a nervy sloppy start from both teams.
Aubameyang and Bellerin combine well and then Ozil's pass into the box is deflected for an Arsenal corner.
Arsenal secure another corner a few minutes later after a deflection. Lacazette then wins a second corner and Brighton clear.
Aubameyang has been caught offside a few times. He should really be working on not being trapped all the time. That is a training ground drill.
Brighton are now having a spell with lots of possession, but they just cannot find a way through the Gunners' defence.
SAVE! Leno is up to the challenge and the Arsenal keeper does well to stop a low long-range Connolly effort.
YELLOW! Bellerin tripps Connolly and VAR is having a look. Was that in the box? No. just outside, but Bellerin is booked anyway and Brighton have a promising free-kick.
Gross messes it up and he hits the wall & David Luiz in particular.
Brighton secure another corner, but it is easily cleared.
Where is the Arsenal defence? Maupay sends a ball across the face of goal and Connolly is the closest, but just cannot get there.
We are still goalless after the first half an hour.
What a waste! After so much talking Burn and Brighton mess up a set-piece in a promising position. It ends up flying wide and over the goal.
The Gunners have not fired at all thus far. They are frustrating themselves in midfield where Kolasinac and Xhaka get in each other’s way.
GOAL, BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION, WEBSTER! (0-1). There it is! A Brighton goal that they deserve after some chaos in the box following a corner. Once again the communication let Arsenal down and David Luiz could have done better there.
Great work by Burn, Gross and Connolly to create the chaos in the area for that goal.
GREAT REACTION from Ryan! Aubameyang finds Willock, who fires it home with a fantastic header, but Ryan's reflexes saves Brighton.
Arsenal continue to be all over the place. They need the break more than Brighton at this stage.
HALF-TIME: ARSENAL 0-1 BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION. The Arsenal fans are booing the team into the dug-out and some are even leaving, but Brighton deserve their lead at this stage. Please join us in a bit.
YELLOW! Sokratis is booked for smashing into Connolly
NO PENALTY! desparation from Lacazette, who is down in the Brighton box looking for a penalty. Poor, there is no contact there!
Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half. Can Arsenal respond or can they organize themselves?
SUBSTITUTION: We have a change at the break for Arsenal and Pepe is on to replace Willock.
Pepe starts well and secure the first corner of the half. It is easily cleared.
GOAL, ARSENAL, LACAZETTE! (1-1) . Ozil takes another corner and Lacazette is there on the back post to head it into the back of the net off Ryan.
It's all Arsenal now!
Now Kolasinac sends the ball across the penalty area but Aubameyang just cannot get there.
It's a very open game now, as Arsenal appear to no longer play it out from the back.
YELLOW! Gross is booked for a professional foul on Ozil.
NO GOAL, ARSENAL, DAVID LUIZ! Ozil takes a free-kick and David Luiz heads it home from an offside position. VAR confirms NO GOAL! A correct decision.
CORNER! Pepe plays it in for Aubameyang but Alzate is there to clear the danger - for now!
YELLOW! David Luiz is booked for a silly challenge on Connolly.
SUBSTITUTION: Arsenal make a change and Kolasinac has been replaced by Tierney.
SUBSTITUTION: Connolly comes off and is replaced by Montoya for Brighton, as David Luiz gives away a corner. Arsenal then take off Lacazette for Martinelli...
GOAL, BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION, MAUPAY! (1-2) What a superb goal! Trossard finds Mooy and he takes his time finding Maupay in the area. The rest is history and Brighton is back in the lead.
Arsenal are all over the place again now. Can they pull another one back?
