Arsenal 1, Brighton 2

The defeat was Arsenal's 10th in the league this season.

Wenger also blamed "heavy legs" for Arsenal's poor first-half performance, as they went 2-0 down within 30 minutes after goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray.

Brighton had their own openings during seven minutes of added-on time, but Chris Hughton watched on as his side successfully held on to their slender lead to register their first points over a top-six side this season.

Wenger turned to Danny Welbeck, Eddie Nketiah and Hector Bellerin from the bench but it was Murray who scored for Brighton - only to have it rightly chalked off for offside.

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Brighton, and I think we're just about out of original things to say.

Glen Murray did find the second goal for the hosts three minutes before half-an-hour as Laurent Koscielny made a awful blind pass that gifted Brighton possession.




Koscielny's wayward pass was sent out wide to Gross, and his curling cross from the right was headed down and beneath the body of Cech by Murray.

At the Amex Stadium on Sunday, no player gave away the ball more often than Mkhitaryan and his dwindling influence on Arsenal's play was epitomised by Wenger's decision to withdraw him with seven minutes left, to be replaced by a fullback. Arsenal kept the pressure on and almost equalized as the half came to a close, but Laurent Koscielny's header hit the post and ricocheted away, and the Gunners went into the break trailing by a goal. Referee Stuart Attwell made a smart call not to award a penalty when Xhaka went to ground in the area, although Sead Kolasinac was fortunate to escape punishment for a shoulder challenge on Ezequiel Schelotto that ended the Brighton full-back's game.

MP Anna Soubry did try to cheer up Morgan however, pointing out when Arsenal pulled one back via Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang.

After Arsenal's embarrassing Carabao Cup final display against Manchester City last weekend, many were expecting a bit of a response from the Gunners last night as they welcomed the same City side to the Emirates.

Ozil had been quiet in the first half but a powerful run and shot brought a fine save from Mat Ryan before the German's threaded pass nearly let in Aubameyang for his second goal.
