Brighton face Everton at the AMEX Stadium on Sunday afternoon, in the first of two Sunday fixtures.

The Seagulls come into this match in mixed form, losing their last match 2-0 against Arsenal prior to the international break.

Nacho Monreal (16) proved to be the unlikely source for the Gunner's first goal, his first since the 2013 season.

A more familiar name joined the score sheet, with Alex Iwobi (56) scoring Arsenal's second midway through the second half.

Despite the scoreline, there were plenty of chances created by both sides, but the Gunners were completely dominant.
