Brighton & Hove Albion defeat Arsenal 2-1 at home today as Mikel Arteta’s side lost their two games in a roll after Premier League restart season

Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 Arsenal, Gunners conceded a 94th-minute goal to lose on the road at Brighton in a match overshadowed by what looked to be a serious injury to Bernd Leno.

Our goalkeeper went down after claiming a ball on the edge of the area, and immediately looked in trouble. After lengthy treatment, he was stretchered off with his right leg in a brace.

It was another frustrating moment for Mikel Arteta, just days after losing Pablo Mari and Granit Xhaka, in a game where he was looking for a response from his side.

Arsenal started much the brighter of the two sides with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having two early sights of goal before Bukayo Saka hit the bar with a brilliant curling effort.

Alex Lacazette was next to try his luck but a last-ditch block by Dan Burn kept out his low drive, and the French striker had another opportunity just after the half-hour mark but Mat Ryan made a fine save to keep out his goalbound header.

Arsenal were on top but with 10 minutes remaining in the first half, Bernd Leno went up with Neal Maupay to claim a high ball on the edge of the area and landed awkwardly and that was the end of his involvement.

His replacement, Emi Martinez, was immediately called into action to make a fine low save to hold Aaron Mooy’s fierce drive, before Aubameyang was denied in the area by a fine tackle by Adam Webster after combining nicely with Lacazette.

Mikel Arteta’s side started the second half much as they ended the first, with Aubameyang testing Ryan within a couple of minutes with a left-footed drive from the edge of the area.

Our captain soon had the ball in the net after being played through by Saka, but the flag had gone up – and after a VAR check the decision to disallow it was upheld.

Martinez then had to make a smart save at his near post from Maupay, before Aubameyang tested Ryan again at the other end with a firm shot.

Arsenal needed a breakthrough, and with 68 minutes remaining we got it when Saka found Pepe to the right of the area, and the Ivorian cut back on to his left and curled a superb strike into the far corner.

But Brighton hit back when, after a quickly taken short corner, Lewis Dunk forced the ball over the line from close range.

Now Gunners had to react again, and Aubameyang soon saw a dipping shot saved by Ryan, before having another strike deflected behind moments later and then Shkodran Mustafi had a header saved.

But there was no way through, and in the fourth minute of injury time, Maupay slotted it past Martinez to condemn us to defeat.


Arsenal have a five-day break now before to their next in action, when they head to the south coast again to take on Southampton at St Mary’s.

A fourth consecutive away game then follows, as we travel north to take on Sheffield United in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.
