The fixture was scheduled to kick-off at the Seagulls’ Amex Stadium at 12pm on Saturday, but the start was delayed by half-an-hour when the Gunners failed to turn up. It later transpired that they’d travelled to Bournemouth by mistake – a whopping 95 miles out of their way – and the game was later postponed.
