Graham Potter - Brighton manager 

Graham Potter, the Brighton manager, is happy with his charges’ fighting spirit ahead of their clash with Arsenal.

“We respect the opposition at this level, but we feel we can be competitive against anybody and give them a game,” Potter said.

“We have to take the challenge on, we can’t fear at. The good thing is that the players want to fight for each other and I think there are a lot of really good signs for us going into another big game on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, Brighton are hoping to retain their status in the English Premier League in the current campaign.

The Seagulls will be banking on Neal Maupay’s scoring ability with the French marksman having scored eight goals in the league this season.

On the other hand, Arsenal are looking to secure a top-four finish in the English Premier League in the current campaign.

Alexandre Lacazette, who is considered to be one of the best strikers in the league, is the dangerman for the Gunners.
