Arsenal 2-0 Brighton: Gunners ease to win

Arsene Wenger Arsenal Brighton

Nacho Monreal scored his first Premier League goal since March 2013 as Arsenal beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 to maintain their ideal home record this season.

Shkodran Mustafi had an effort blocked following a set piece on the right and Hector Bellerin's follow-up also cannoned into a Brighton body before Monreal rifled in for a first Premier League goal since March 2013.

Solly March nearly hit back with Albion's first real chance of the half, with a free-kick routine resulting in a free shot that hit the post. Alexis got the ball from Ramsey and flicked it on with a lovely backheel for Alex Iwobi, who powered his shot past Ryan into the top corner.

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.

Wenger, who insisted it was too early in the season to say whether Arsenal could catch the frontrunning Manchester clubs, claimed he had not know about his work anniversary until prompted today.

In the 16th minute, Nacho Monreal was the final player in a queue to try and drive the ball into the Brighton net after Granit Xhaka's free-kick had been nodded back into play by Lacazette.

The Nigerian global, who was a major doubt for the Gunners clash, finished off a backheeled assist from Alexis Sanchez in the 56th minute after Nacho Monreal had shot Arsenal into the lead in the 16th minute.

"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.

The game then went into something of a lull with Ryan making the odd save. "That type of individual you want to see him here as long as he wants to be here".

After a poor start to the season, Arsene Wenger's men have managed to transform their fortunes with six wins from their past seven outings in all competitions. Ozil missed out again through injury, however Arsenal have arguably played the best they have for a while without the German in the side.

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton addressed reporters ahead of Sunday's game at Arsenal.
