Petr Cech accepts responsibility for Arsenal defeat in post-match tweet

Brighton pile the pressure on Wenger as Arsenal lose again

And Merson believes the end is nigh for the Frenchman, who has been in charge at Arsenal since 1996.

Naturally, this defeat has left the entire Arsenal fan base fuming with anger and disappointment, and as per James Benge of The Evening Standard, the club's star playmaker Mesut Ozil experienced similar emotions whilst on the pitch. They're hanging their manager out to dry. However, if their Brighton performance is anything to go by, Wenger's men are not guaranteed a win against any top flight team. Confidence is shot, and I don't think they'll be up for a fight against Brighton.

The Gunners are now 33 points behind league leaders Manchester City and 13 points behind fourth place Tottenham.

The loss was Arsenal's tenth of the season, meaning the club have already lost more games this term than they did in all of the last campaign.

Cech came out to catch/punch a corner in the seventh minute but failed to get any sort of contact on the ball and Brighton defender Shane Duffy would head back across goal for Lewis Dunk to slam home from inside six years to give the Premier League newcomers the lead.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would reduce the deficit with a smart finish just before the interval, but the Gunners were unable to even grab a draw as they lost an away league game for the eighth time this season.

Wenger finds himself under increasing pressure at the Emirates as his side struggle in the league and their only realistic avenue into the Champions League next season is via the Europa League.

This tally is more than the likes of Serie A side Benevento who have the worst defence in Europe's top five leagues, conceding 60 goals.
