Arsenal travel to Brighton on Saturday looking to follow up their impressive win against Tottenham.
The Gunners can enjoy local bragging after they beat Spurs 3-1 last weekend but that result can only go down as a turning point under Mikel Arteta if they build on it. Watch live Arsenal vs Brighton HD Stream to the following link:

Arsenal vs Brighton
Date: Saturday, October 2, 2021, Time: 5:30pm BST
Venue: Amex Stadium
This is the best squad Mikel Arteta has had to work with so far at Arsenal. Five wins in their last six matches, into the top half of the table, and thoroughly beating their rivals. Arsenal Women are top of the WSL and are coming off their own dominating performance over Tottenham. Plus, the Arsenal U23s are just a point off the top in the Premier League 2 having recently drawn the leaders Manchester City and beaten Chelsea 6-1. At the moment, things are bright for Arsenal and August seems like a long time ago.
Nevertheless, Potter’s side are still keeping pace with the big boys and will come under increasing pressure to maintain such a rich vein of form over the coming weeks, but their only defeat so far this season did come at home to Everton.
That run won’t last for too long – not a lot has changed about the Gunners, really, because I still think they will go on streaks of good or bad results just like last season – but they will be smiling on Saturday evening anyway.
Rather incredibly, only Manchester City and Chelsea can boast more home clean sheets than Brighton in the Premier League since the turn of the year, but their opponents are on cloud nine following a remarkable display of attacking guile against their North London rivals.
