Arsenal will look to return to winning ways on Sunday when they travel to Brighton in the WSL.

The Gunners conceded a heartbreaking 89th minute equaliser against title rivals Chelsea last time out after failing to convert numerous opportunities, leaving them three points behind the league leaders with a game in hand – with Manchester United also sandwiched in between.

They face a Brighton side who lost to basement club Leicester last weekend to leave them in the thick of a relegation battle.

Megan Connolly and Elisabeth Terland both missed out against West Ham in the Continental Cup on Wednesday due to thigh injuries, as did Dejana Stefanovic due to a back problem.

Brighton confirmed the signing of former Arsenal goalkeeper Lydia Williams on Thursday, and she will battle for the number one spot with Megan Walsh, who saved three penalties in the Seagulls’ midweek Continental Cup shootout win.

Arsenal continue to be without Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema, who are both sidelined with ACL injuries. Jonas Eidevall confirmed that his side otherwise have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s fixture.

Brighton underwhelmed in Jens Scheuer’s first match in charge, suffering a 3-0 defeat against a Leicester side previously without a single point all season. The Seagulls have also lost nine from nine against Arsenal in the WSL.

The Gunners dominated against Chelsea last weekend and would have come away with all three points had they been more prolific in front of goal. Although their comfortable victory over Brighton at the start of the season was aided by an early, contentious sending off for the Seagulls, Arsenal should come out on top again on Sunday.

Prediction: Brighton 0-3 Arsenal
