English Premier League Report; Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion 01 October 2017

Predicted Arsenal XI v Brighton

On Sunday, for the visit of Brighton and Hove Albion, a side who Arsenal should be defeating more convincingly than 2-0, the Emirates Stadium was surprisingly subdued for the league match, with home fans comprehensively out-sung by the very vocal visitors.

"We kept the clean sheet and of course got three points", Wenger told Match of the Day.

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.

Goals either side of half-time from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi earned a 2-0 success against the Seagulls and continued the Gunners' recent resurgence.

"It was a great team play", he said.

The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who joined Arsenal back in 1996, marked the 21st anniversary of his arrival at the club with the victory.

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

Just 64 hours after winning at Belarus's Bate Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday, Arsenal were back in action and Wenger freshened up his side by making nine changes.

Arsenal wasted no time in trying to net a third, with Sanchez the next player to be denied by a sensational stop from Ryan, who got down to his left to tip the Chilean's low shot behind for a corner.

"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". What I liked less is that on the focus sometimes I feel we eased off a bit and missed some passes that we are not used to missing because our concentration was a bit in and out.

'I did not know about it, ' he said.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed he was pleased with his team's recovery following a disappointing start to the campaign.

"It was always going to be hard here playing against an Arsenal side at home, your levels of concentration have got to be for 90 minutes. It just depends on us how much we respond". "I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has", stressed the Gunners forward to BBC Sports.
