Arsenal travel to Brighton on Saturday evening with the hopes of extending their unbeaten run amid the race for the Premier League title.

Coming off the back of a 2-0 home win over Luton Town, the Gunners are sat in second behind Liverpool at the summit of the Premier League table.

With Arsenal hoping to return to the summit before the Reds take on Man Utd, there are four key talking points ahead of their visit to the Amex Stadium.

Arsenal's visit to East Sussex marks the beginning of a tough run for Mikel Arteta's side. The Gunners will face Aston Villa, Wolves, Chelsea and Tottenham in the games following their encounter with Brighton.

Sandwiched in the middle of this tough run is the Gunners' Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich. With the home leg of this blockbuster clash coming just days after the Seagulls game, Arsenal will be looking to build up as much momentum as possible to continue their hunt for both the Premier League and Champions League.

A win for Arsenal at the Amex Stadium would be a perfect way to start this tough run and will continue their chase for their first Premier League title in 20 years.
