Arsenal has become unfamiliar with victory after suffering straight four defeats in four encounters, three in a week.
The Gunners journey to Falmer Stadium was thought to end in a victory not because C. Hughton’s side was necessarily deemed inferior but also the miserable back to back results they registered from playing quality Manchester City the past week was thought to be an inspiration.
Unfortunately Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray’s goals proved a section of believers wrong as Aubameyang’s 43rd minute goal was not enough to save Arsenal.
Following a corner, Dunk managed to open the scores from a close range at the 7th minute before Murray doubled the lead at the 26th minute. Field skipper Koscielny away pass got intercepted and Knockaert played to Gross who crossed to Murray before the English man headed home whereas Mustafi’s effort to jump for rescue was futile.
Brighton who are 10th on the table now with 34 points have beaten Arsenal for the first time in 36 years whereas Arsenal has lost for the fourth consecutive time in 16 years.
Although the performance of the home side this time was better than when they lost to Pep Guardiola’s boys previously, no more goals other than Aubameyang’s consolation goal were seen for Arsene Wenger to take a breath.
Aubameyang as well managed a shot lately but was easily saved by Brighton goal keeper Ryan.
Arsenal will face AC Milan in their first leg of their Europa League LAST 16 tie in Italy before returning for another Premier League fixture on Sunday as they host Watford whereas Brighton will face Everton with more confidence a day before.
