Arsenal Star Brutally Trolled For Shocking First Half Performance Against Brighton

Arsenal Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Brighton

Arsène Wenger admitted Arsenal's hopes of a top-four Premier League finish were over after the 2-1 defeat at Brighton.

Petr Cech was at fault for both of the Brighton goals and he tweeted an apology.

Brighton did double their lead on 26 minutes as the Gunners gave possession away, which allowed Stephen Gross to cross for Murray, who sent a towering header past Cech.

A trip to the Amex Stadium presented Arsenal with an opportunity to offer a positive response to those quick to criticise them on the back of successive defeats to Manchester City.

The offside flag denied Brighton a third when Murray finished off a slick move late on, but his first-half header ultimately earned them a third straight home victory, while another insipid Arsenal display will prompt even more discussion over Wenger's position.

Xhaka has had his fair share of criticism from Arsenal fans this season but Henry praised the Switzerland global for his role in the Gunners' goal in the first half.

FW Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 4 - Arsenal have an army of playmakers but none of them were able to control the game, with Mkhitaryan the most ineffective of the lot. We need two teams to collapse and I don't see that happening.

Arsene Wenger opted for a change after 75 minutes as former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck replaced Alex Iwobi.

Goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray put Brighton in control before Aubameyang brought the visitors back into the game.

Instead, Arsenal were repeatedly pushed back with Cech forced to save well from Gross before Dunk wastefully headed over the bar. Arsenal's entire defence looked shaky whenever pressed, Koscielny's contribution to the second goal proving a case in point.

Chants of Wenger Out came from the away end as Arsenal trailed at the break but Wenger's half-time team talk seemed to inspire his players slightly as the Gunners came out fighting in the second half.

"My future is not my main worry", Wenger said. Granit Xhaka fed the ball into Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who cleverly flicked the ball home with the outside of his boot.

Many believe this is the worst side to have ever played under Wenger, despite boasting the talented likes of Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Aubameyang.
