Arsène Wenger: 'Our last global break was a nightmare'

  • Owen picks out the two reasons that make Sanchez staying at Arsenal impossible

It was the Spaniard's first Premier League goal since March 2013.

It was nearly four and half years since Monreal had last found the net on League duty, although he had managed a couple in the FA Cup since then. The winger twisted his way into the box before his curling effort was desperately cleared off the line by the fingertips of Ryan. "I don't think you're ever satisfied -there were certainly a couple of games where we could have got more - but we're a new team in this division and learning".

Such was Brighton's passivity that chances like that and March hitting the post came as a shock, while also suggesting Arsenal could be got at. The difference in the first half was the set piece they scored off.

Alexis Sanchez picked the ball up on the edge of the area and Alex Iwobi got into space behind him, which led to the Chilean backheeling the ball into the Nigerian's path. Defender Lewis Dunk could not adjust his feet in time to divert the rebound on target.

The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who joined Arsenal back in 1996, marked the 21st anniversary of his arrival at the club with the victory.

NFL Week Four Match Up: Eagles at Chargers
The Birds have had their defense decimated by injuries , and their secondary will be their most vulnerable position on Sunday. Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said Manning released the ball in less than 2 seconds on 34 out of 52 pass plays.

The draw continues an underwhelming run of form for Jurgen Klopp's men, who have picked up just five points from their past four games and have only won one of their past seven games in all competitions. 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.

The last newly-promoted side to beat Arsene Wenger's men was Newcasle United in November 2010.

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.

Arsenal's £46.5m record signing Alexandre Lacazette had scored four goals in his first five Premier League starts and he nearly continued that streak just 60 seconds in when he hit the post from the edge of the penalty box.

"I wouldn't say it was comfortable but we made it as easy as we could", Iwobi told BBC Sport. This is a game they were expected to win, and they head into the global break on a positive note, with a clean sheet and three points.

Asked at a press conference whether that fate had been averted by his victory, Bolton said, "Absolutely, yes". But their new leader has promised to rally the party behind their core message of a guaranteed hard Brexit.

"It was a great team play".

"He is capable of doing anything".

Brighton Goalkeeper Maty Ryan believes they made it too easy for Arsenal to score in their loss at the Emirates this afternoon.

"When you come here, you know it's going to be a hard afternoon", said Hughton. They defended with a lot of players.

"After Liverpool we talked because we can't play as we did". I knew that it just depended on us, and how much we responded.
