After 3 wins in a row, Arsenal suffered against a better Brighton team collectively but left with the match point (0-0) on Saturday.
L’Arsenal by Mikel Arteta is still far from the mark. The Gunners had relaunched brilliantly with 3 wins in a row, including that in the derby against Tottenham (3-1), a week ago. The London team could not follow up against Brighton, one of the best teams at the start of the season, settling for one point after being dominated for 90 minutes of play (0-0).
With 58% possession of the ball, the Seagulls have tried their luck no less than 21 times (!), But only targeting twice. The old cornflower Neal Maupay, already 4 goals this season, and his teammates Leandro Trossard and Adam Lallana could not get in an ideal position in the opponent’s box to beat Aaron Ramsdale.
Against, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka did not know how to take advantage of the spaces to be dangerous and the entrances of Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre lacazette, in the middle of the second half, did not change anything. Emile Smith Rowe got Arsenal’s only opportunity by falling on Robert Sanchez (76th). Brighton is 5th and Arsenal 9th, with 4 points less.
