Posted October 02, 2017

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not losing sleep over Manchester City and Manchester United making a fast start to the Premier League campaign and insists much football is still to be played. Arsene Wenger has said that Alex iwobi, Laurent Koscielny, and Sead Kolasinac are all doubts for the match with Koscielny the least likely to play.

With the win, Arsenal are a point behind north London rivals Tottenham in the chasing pack behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Brighton threatened a little during the middle of the first half, with Solly March hitting the post, but the Gunners absorbed the pressure and kept Brighton from scoring.

The Frenchman's side beat new boys Brighton in a 2-0 victory that saw both teams squander a number of chances in front of goal.

The Gunners move to fifth place on the log with 13 points from seven games.

The last time the Gunners lost a home game in October was back in 2002 - a 2-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

The Nigeria global, Alex Iwobi, has opened his goal scoring account in the Premier league this season for Arsenal. It felt to me as though it was an obstacle, because it is in games like this when Arsenal are expected to win easily that we have often slipped up, and it was the 21st anniversary of Wenger taking over as manager.

Arsenal wasted no time in trying to net a third, with Sanchez the next player to be denied by a sensational stop from Ryan, who got down to his left to tip the Chilean's low shot behind for a corner.

"When you come here you know it's going to be a hard afternoon", Hughton told Sky Sports News after the game.

"I wouldn't say it was comfortable but we made it as easy as we could", Iwobi told BBC Sport. I was lucky to be there and get my second goal for Arsenal. "We won the three games and that's very positive". From there the team reacted we are playing more compact, we defend with all players and have a clean sheet.

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton addressed reporters ahead of Sunday's game at Arsenal. Now we've got the first two wins out of the way we can keep on building.
