EPL 2017-18: Arsenal 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion, 5 Talking Points

ALEX IWOBI, crediting Arsenal team-mate Alexis Sanchez's vision and execution for their second goal.

It was Nacho Monreal who scored a rare goal in the 16th minute to put the Gunners ahead and while Solly March came very close to restoring parity in the 23rd minute, it was not to be.

Arsenal now have to wait until October 14 for their next match, away to Watford in the Premier League."I would have loved to be able to continue to play, but we can not do anything about that", Wenger said after his side's 2-0 league win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Nigerian worldwide Alex Iwobi doubled the hosts lead by crashing an effort into the net following a sensational back-heeled pass from Alexis Sanchez to seal the three points for the Gunners and send them into this global break in positive spirits.

'But I didn't think they are as far as that.

The goal was only the Spaniard's second in the league - and first for more than four years - and only a fine save from Brighton keeper Matt Ryan prevented Aaron Ramsey doubling their lead just before the interval.

"Yes, I remember it well, an Andy Carroll header", smiled Hughton.

Arsenal headed into the last worldwide break on the back of a 4-0 mauling at Anfield which saw some uncomfortable questions asked of them and their manager.

'We kept the clean sheet and of course got three points.

Brighton gave a good account of themselves in North London, but they remain without an away win in the top flight since gaining promotion in May.

There were two changes made in the starting line up by Arsenal manager as Rob Holding filled in for Laurent Koscielny while Alex Iwobi started game in attacking midfield position.

Centre-back Mustafi then glanced the ball marginally wide of his own goal as Brighton began to lay siege to Cech's goal in search of a goal which would only increase the nervousness in the Arsenal defensive third.

Considering how little he has played for the club in the last few years, few Arsenal players get as much media attention as Jack Wilshere does. "Brighton are a very good team, they made it very hard for us but it was a great result to win the game and also come out with a clean sheet".
