Arsenal beat Brighton 2-0 in EPL

Predicted Brighton XI v Arsenal

"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".

It was almost the flawless start for Arsenal, with Alexandre Lacazette striking the post inside the first two minutes with a rasping volley.

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. The defender's right footed effort was smashed home after Brighton blocked shots from Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin. It was his first Premier League goal for an incredible 1,660 days. Arsenal then almost doubled their tally in the 42nd minute after a strong counterattack, but Ryan made a great save to deny Aaron Ramsey.

In second half of the game, youngster Iwobi was beautifully set up by Alexis Sanchez for a goal in 56th minute.

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 Spaniard converted after a wild scramble in the box following a free-kick, although the visitors were adamant the ball had gone out of play. However, Monreal is a composed footballer and kept his head to shoot home.

⚽ Ian Wright's Premier League Sunday Tips ⚽

. Overall, football changed a lot in this 21 years.

The game would end in a deserved win for the hosts, who go fifth, level on points with Chelsea and just one behind Spurs, as their season continues to improve. It was a professional performance against Brighton and denied the victors any time or space on the ball.

There are many reasons for Arsenal fans to look back fondly on the day Wenger was hired but, after several years of underachievement, the Frenchman finds himself engaged in a fight to restore his tarnished reputation.

Matthew Ryan can not wait for the chance to test himself like a 'established name like Arsenal' as Brighton prepare for a tough Premier League game on Sunday. Arsenal spent the next fourteen minutes pressuring Brighton and testing goalkeeper Mat Ryan, until Lacazette won a free kick a few yards in front of the corner flag.
