Arsenal Confirmed Lineup vs Brighton: Iwobi, Sanchez behind Lacazette

Alexis Sanchez

With three wins in six days, it's clear that Arsenal are recovering from those dark days in August when losses at Stoke and Liverpool dredged up dissent in the wisdom of Arsene Wenger extending his reign. Arsene Wenger has said that Alex iwobi, Laurent Koscielny, and Sead Kolasinac are all doubts for the match with Koscielny the least likely to play. Arsenal dominated the first half of game and controlled a large part of the second half as well while visitors grew in momentum in the dying stages of gam the but couldn't take anything away. It's very early, seven games played and 31 to go.

In the end, Arsenal's quality shone through, however Brighton can take encouragement and will no doubt pick up a good amount of points this season down to their discipline, desire and organisation.

Brighton's Solly March also hit the post in the first-half after a short free kick.

Iwobi's goal came after Nacho Monreal had opened the scoring for the home side on the 16th minute. They provisionally hold the fifth position in the standings with 13 points on goal differential behind defending champions Chelsea.

The last time the Gunners lost a home game in October was back in 2002 - a 2-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

Lagos-born Alex Iwobi scored during the "Arsenal For All" diversity day against Brighton at the Emirates. The Gunners moved the ball quickly early, and Mathew Ryan had little time to breathe, with Alexis Sanchez putting him to work with a low shot.




Speaking during BT Sport's coverage of the game on Sunday afternoon, Keown said: "We talked about Sanchez being involved in everything and he showed magic there".

"We got the clean sheet, we got the three points", he told BT Sport.

"When you come here, you know it's going to be a hard afternoon", said Hughton. I was lucky to be there and get my second goal for Arsenal. In the six games we've had different types of challenges. I knew that it just depended on us, and how much we responded.

"But we're a new team coming into this division and learning".

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 worldwide break.
