Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 4pm GMT. Live coverage is available on BT Sport 1. Radio commentary of the game is available on BBC Radio 5Live.


Arsenal travel to the south coast on Sunday to face Brighton in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Gunners will be weary of their opponents, as cup clashes away at Championship clubs are a cause for concern as some usually end up in upsets.

The FA Cup holders will hope to seal the deal at the Amex Stadium rather than force a replay as they will be involved in the Champions League from next month onwards.

Arsene Wenger could ring in a few changes owing to the return of various attacking players, and could rest Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla; while starting with Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott.

Meanwhile, Brighton come into this game on the back of a morale boosting 3-2 win over promotion chasing Ipswich Town in the Championship.

Chris Hughton has warned Arsenal that the pressure will be on them and that his team are ready to cause an upset to add to Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham's shock FA Cup losses on Saturday.

What managers say

Chris Hughton: "Absolutely, the pressure is all on them. And if you look at the players they have, the team they can put out, that is only natural. We will have a plan. And we have been working on that since Friday. But for it to work, everybody must play at their maximum. It will take a massive effort from us to win. We can't afford to have anyone not giving everything they have got."

Arsene Wenger: "[Beating Manchester City] raises the belief and the confidence of the team but it also questions your ability to repeat that kind of performance, and to keep that tenacity in your concentration. That's what will be questioned at Brighton."
