Another disappointed result came out at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Mikel Arteta’s side suffered second loss in row following Neal Maupay’s last gap winner goal for Brighton.
Despite Mikel Arteta’s men produced a much improved performance from their mid-week defeats at Manchester city, they still ended their match with lose with doubt their hope of qualify for Europa League next season.
Gunners starlet Bukayo Saka smacked the crossbar in the first-half while Alexandre Lacazette brilliant header was save Mat Ryan.
Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was relentless in drifting behind the Brighton defence and Bukayo Saka was very comfortable filling the gaps he left. Too often, however, Arsenal squandered their chances.
Nicolas Pepe’s goal was outstanding as he bent the ball into the far corner but being just one goal ahead instead of two or three left the Gunners way too vulnerable in the closing stages of the game.
