Iwobi Fires Zambia Warning With Arsenal Goal Vs Brighton

Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi scored either side of the break as Arsenal moved level on points with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Wenger this week claimed Arsenal are a more unified team since the transfer window closed just after their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.

He set up Alex Iwobi for the killer second goal with an outrageous backheel and constantly linked up well with Lacazette, who has scored four goals in seven league games already this season. Overall, football changed a lot in this 21 years.

Arsenal's opener on 16 minutes came from an unlikely source, as Spanish defender Monreal netted his first Premier League goal since 16 March 2013, in the 2-0 win at Swansea 1660 days ago.

The England forward impressed in his role behind Olivier Giroud and alongside Jack Wilshere, but will not be retained against Brighton because of Wenger's plans to protect his players from a demanding schedule.

"I would say that we kept a clean sheet, we got the points", he said of the Gunners' current state.

Our last global break was a nightmare but this is one is a bit better.

But in my experience in big games, perhaps in the past when I was a little bit younger and less experienced, I would think I've got to do something out of the ordinary to match these guys.

However, with Arsenal on a good run, Wenger believes they are now unified again and can enjoy a successful season. "I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed he was pleased with his team's recovery following a disappointing start to the campaign.

Playing particularly better in the second half, Alexis Sanchez helped us to secure yet another home win.

"After Liverpool we talked because we can't play as we did", the Spaniard said.

"Nothing is permanent. You're not bad in a permanent way".

'Let's hope that the players come back in a good shape'.

Brighton arguably have the weakest squad in the league, however Chris Hughton is an exceptional coach who gets the best out of his side.
