Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott return to start for Arsenal in their FA Cup fourth-round tie at Brighton. Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who had lost his place to David Ospina in recent matches, also starts today.
It is Ozil's first start for the club since last October, as the German playmaker returns from a knee injury.
Walcott last started for Arsenal in their FA Cup third round win over Arsenal last month.
Meanwhile, Brighton, who occupy 20th spot in the Championship enter Sunday’s fourth round tie on the back of an improving set of results under new boss Chris Hughton. The Seagulls, who parted ways with Sami Hyypia in December, will be hoping to continue their good run of form going into Sunday’s match, which has seen the South coast team lose just once in their last seven matches.
Brighton: Stockdale; Bruno, Greer, Dunk, Bennett; Holla, Ince; Calderon, Forster-Caskey, Baldock; O'Grady
Arsenal: Szczesny, Chambers, Koscielny, Monreal, Gibbs, Flamini, Walcott, Ramsey, Ozil, Rosicky, Giroud
