Arsenal 2 - Brighton 0


Albion stay 13th in the table - with seven points from as many matches - heading in to the second global break of the season.

"I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond", said Wenger.

"Nothing is permanent. You aren't bad in a permanent way if you can do something about it, and you are not good in a permanent way if you don't keep your urgency".

"Our last global break was a nightmare, this one is a bit better", Wenger said.

Following the worldwide break, the Gunners will travel to Vicarage Road on October 14 to take on Watford, while Brighton will play host to Everton the following day.

Arsenal's Nacho Monreal scores his side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, London.

"I can't accuse the lads of not giving everything", said Hughton. Having earned 7 points for 6 played matches, I consider quite a good result for the "gulls".

Lagos-born Alex Iwobi scored during the "Arsenal For All" diversity day against Brighton at the Emirates. We penetrated well and we had a few moments where we got in the box but just couldn't get the final touch at the end.

Monreal struck after 16 minutes when Hector Bellerin's deflected shot came into the path of the defender, who then proceeded to smash home for his first goal since 2013.

Nacho Monreal opened the scoring in the first half before Alex Iwobi, converting Alexis Sanchez's majestic assist, wrapped up the points after the interval.

Wenger's men, perhaps jaded from a week in which they had already seen off West Brom and BATE Borisov in Belarus, tailed off alarmingly in the last 20 minutes and Brighton nearly took advantage. A great team move led to a brilliant back heel set up by Sanchez which was clinically converted by Iwobi to double Arsenal's lead.

Wenger's early years at the helm of Arsenal yielded three Premier League titles but the Gunners have not been crowned champions of England since 2004.

"From there the team reacted we are playing more compact, we defend with all players and have a clean sheet".
