Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Dale Stephens has issued a warning to Arsenal by insisting that the Seagulls can give anyone a game at the Amex, ahead of today's clash.

Chris Hughton’s men slipped to 13th in the Premier League table following their 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The Seagulls slipped to a narrow defeat against Chelsea at home before their meeting with the Cherries, and will next face Arsenal at the Amex.

Despite their inability to pick up points during their last three outings in the Premier League, Stephens admitted that Brighton are aiming to make the best use of home advantage against Arsenal.

The 29-year-old issued a warning to the Gunners by insisting that Brighton are more than capable of making life difficult for any opposing side in their own backyard at the Amex.

“It’s a big game in front of our home supporters and I think our record at the Amex Stadium speaks for itself”, Stephens was quoted as saying by his club's official site.

“It’s proved to be a big thing for us both last season and during this campaign, and it’s one that the fans will look forward to.

“We have good memories of this fixture last season, we have to use those experiences, we’ll approach it full of confidence and I know everyone will be ready to go.

“We can give anyone a game at home, that’s how we’ve been since I’ve been at the club.”

Brighton will be without the services of Lewis Dunk, who scored the opening goal during their 2-1 win over Arsenal in the corresponding fixture last season, owing to a suspension following his sending off at Bournemouth.
