Iwobi scores as Arsenal beat Brighton on Wenger's 21st anniversary

Wednesday, 04 Oct, 2017

Arsene Wenger praised his side's consistency after Arsenal made it three wins in a week by beating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at Emirates Stadium.

Since capping a turbulent August with a awful 4-0 loss at Liverpool, Arsenal have since won six and drawn at Chelsea.

"I would say that we kept a clean sheet, we got the points", he said.

Spaniard Nacho Monreal opened the scoring for Arsenal 16 minutes into the match at Emirates Stadiu, reports Efe.

But the long-serving French manager is demanding more from the player who hit his sixth Arsenal goal, and his fifth at home. after Nacho Monreal's first half strike put the North Londoners ahead. Arsene Wenger likes to give his players freedom, and whilst it can result in handsome football, it can also leave gaps in front of the defence, and poor decision making in the final third when coming up against sides who are well organised.

It was painful viewing for Everton manager Ronale Koeman, whose side has lost four of its seven matches this season.

Arsenal and Liverpool head into the global break in very different moods from the last one, even though only a point separates them in the Premier League.

Matthew Ryan can not wait for the chance to test himself like a 'established name like Arsenal' as Brighton prepare for a tough Premier League game on Sunday.

"Nothing is permanent; you're not bad in a permanent way, if you can do something about it, and you're not good in a permanent way, if you don't keep your urgency".

There was ample evidence to support that theory as his team tore into Brighton right from the start. What I liked less is that on the focus sometimes I feel we eased off a bit and missed some passes that we are not used to missing because our concentration was a bit in and out.

"It is always going to be hard here, levels of concentration have to be for 90 minutes". "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".

"I'm going to have to go with Jurgen Klopp's men as on paper they are the much better side".

'You look at any world class player in the world we've seen over the last 15 or 20 years - you know one thing they do?
