The Gunners are finally looking up the table, not down, after ending a long winless streak by thumping Chelsea.
They head to the south coast with renewed confidence, but also aware that they lost the corresponding fixture last season thanks to Neal Maupay’s injury-time winner.
Another win tonight will send Arsenal up to 12th before a welcome run of fixtures against relegation candidates in early January.
Arsenal will be without Gabriel, who has tested positive for coronavirus, while fellow Brazilians David Luiz and Willian missed the Chelsea win through another illness.
In more positive news, Mikel Arteta will hope to be boosted by the potential return to the side of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe should keep their place in the starting line-up.
