Arsenal team predicted line up Brighton

Arsene Wenger lamented on Sunday that Arsenal's recent upturn in form will be interrupted by next week's global break.

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. The difference in the first half was the set piece they scored off. Seven games played, 31 to go.

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.

Brighton made plenty of mistakes and Arsenal should have capitalised on them.

Alexandre Lacazette hit a post in the first minute and Aaron Ramsey had a close range effort well saved by keeper Mathew Ryan as Arsenal dominated the possession.

The Gunners move to fifth place on the log with 13 points from seven games.

The Nigeria worldwide, Alex Iwobi, has opened his goal scoring account in the Premier league this season for Arsenal.

Prince Harry is godfather to six of his friends' children, saying previously that he would "like to think" he does a good job. She met Prince Harry in the training tent at a cycling event on Tuesday, as he made his way round competitors to greet them.

Two of Arsenal's core players, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Oezil were dropped from the squad due to injury and failed to pass medical tests.

To follow Monday's 2-0 defeat of West Brom and Thursday's 4-2 Europa League win at BATE Borisov, Arsenal made a professional (and pretty much anxiety-free) job of beating Brighton.

Yes, we agree that they were not at their entertaining best against Brighton in a game that many expected Arsenal to win comfortably, but it is perhaps the kind of result that many Arsenal fans would love.

Brighton forward Pascal Gross was shown a yellow card for arguing after the goal, as was Shane Duffy for a challenge on Alexis in the 39th minute. "We won the three games and that's very positive".

"But we're a new team coming into this division and learning". We penetrated well and we had a few moments where we got in the box but just couldn't get the final touch at the end.

Lacazette will be now hoping to continue his goalscoring form at home against Brighton on Sunday, to help Arsenal get a valuable three points before the global break.
