Arsenal Beat Brighton 2-0 in Premier League

"I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond", said Gunners manager Wenger. I have seen him play this season and he still fights, give his best and scores goals. Rob Holding and Alex Iwobi will start since the first minute. For us it was a very testing week, we had two home games, one long away trip in the Europa League.

The 21-year-old finally found the back of the net in a league game since January to ease Arsene Wenger's men to their fourth league win this campaign.

Wenger was referring to the efforts made by Arsenal to promote inclusivity at at the club, after Matt Lucas, honorary President of the Gay Gooners supporters club, made a passionate speech on the Emirates pitch at half-time today. Brighton struggled to find any sort of rhythm on the day, but almost found an equalizer in the first half when Solly March blasted a long-distance effort off the post.

Arsenal's opener was Monreal's first Premier League goal in more than four-and-a-half years.

Since then, the Gunners have won three and held champions Chelsea, one of their London rivals, to a goalless draw. Glenn Murray, returning from injury, was only fit enough for the bench while Tomer Hemed, goalscorer in last week's 1-0 defeat of Newcastle, was suspended for stamping on DeAndre Yedlin during that match. "What I love in the game is as well to deal with bad moments and to find the response".

"When you come here you know it's going to be a hard afternoon", Hughton told Sky Sports News after the game.

As more and more AKB's joined the Wenger Out Brigade it looked as though the club would have to act, and even when they chose to stick with him we were told that there would still be changes made. In the six games we've had different types of challenges. "We lost 4-0, and the team was really poor", said Monreal, whose goal was his first since 2013.

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

He also hailed free transfer Sead Kolasinac's performance in helping the backline to keep a clean sheet, adding: "He is a satisfaction since he arrived here".
