Sanchez Beats Monreal, Iwobi To Arsenal's Best Player Award Vs Brighton

6. Laurent Koscielny  click the right arrow to see the entire predicted Arsenal line-up

Iwobi, who is one of the 23 players invited by Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr for Saturday's Russian Federation 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo, scored Arsenal's second goal to help the Gunners defeat Brighton 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in London on Sunday.

"Three Points, Clean Sheet And A Goal Perfect Way To Celebrate Independence Day #BIG17", Iwobi gleefully tweeted yesterday.

Wenger who marked 21 years in charge of the Premier League giants against the South Coast side at the Emirates on Sunday said of Iwobi: "A player like that must score ten goals".

"Every season you go through a period that is a bit more hard and the team can show what they are made of and we responded well and have been very consistent since".

Arsenal is six points behind the Manchester pacesetters of City and United, but things aren't looking as bleak as they did for Wenger in the opening weeks of the season.

The report claims Wenger, who signed a new two-year deal himself in May, has always believed Wilshere has what it takes to force his way into his first-team plans.

Brighton became the 45th side to be beaten by Wenger as the manager.

This has led to renewed questioning by some Arsenal fans as to whether Wenger should continue at the helm, especially as the Gunners have dropped out of the Champions League this season.

"I wouldn't say it (match) was comfortable but we made it as easy as we could for ourselves".

Wenger admitted his players were not at their best against Brighton, but highlighted the importance of going into the two-week worldwide break with a victory.

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

Brighton arguably have the weakest squad in the league, however Chris Hughton is an exceptional coach who gets the best out of his side.

Caught in the Premier League, Brighton could not count on anything else, how to get hold of a place in 20 best teams. Let's hope this can get tied up soon and Wilshere can get back into the starting lineup on a regular basis.
