Join us for live coverage of the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Brighton from the Emirates Stadium. This is Freddie Ljungberg's first home game in charge of the Gunners.

LIVE
94'
FT: Arsenal 1-2 Brighton!! All over at the Emirates. Lacazette levelled for Arsenal five minutes after the break before David Luiz thought he had made it 2-1, but the VAR saw he was miles offside. Arsenal were the better side in the second period, but Maupay scored the winner for the away side ten minutes to pile more misery on Arsenal. That's all from us, join us again soon for more action!
94'
Brighton keep the ball on the far side and the referee blows for full-time! The Emirates crowd are fuming and rightly so.

80'
Brighton sub: Trossard on for Gross.
79'
Brighton attack again through Mooy, he gives it to Maupay, but they can't get a shot off.
78'
Arsenal have been the better side in the second half, but a draw would be a fair result.
77'
Arsenal sub: Lacazette going off and Martinelli is on.
76'
Pinball from the corner which is finally cleared.
75'

72'
Arsenal sub: Tierney on for Kolasinac.

The goal has obviously been taken away by the VAR! Back to 1-1.

62'
Foul by Burn on Pepe, which sees the Brighton man accidentally step on Pepe's ankle.
61'
What a chance for Brighton! Maupay passes to Alzate, his cross in is headed by Mooy and Maupay touches inside the six yard box and then Leno saves it for a corner.

Welcome back everyone! We have a HT sub here. Pepe is coming on for Arsenal here. Willock makes way.
45'
HT: Arsenal 0-1 Brighton! Half-time and the Seagulls lead through Webster's goal nine minutes before the break. Potter's men have been the much better team in the first period. Ryan had to make a tremendous save to deny Willock and Aubameyang has looked dangerous a couple of times, but very little apart from that from the Gunners. Back for more in 10 minutes!

44'
Attempts: 4-8, on target: 2-5.

36'
Stephens gives it to Mooy on the edge of the box and it's deflected for a corner.
34'
Propper tries his luck from a similar distance! This is straight at the goalie though.
33'
Maupay!!!! That was dangerous! The '7' strikes from 25 yards out and the German has to dive to his left to save it! Arsenal not impressive at all.

12'

11'
David Luiz's strike from outside the box is saved by Ryan and then he spills it after a foul.
