by: Evolve


The match between Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League ended in a hard-fought 2-1 victory for the visitors at the Emirates Stadium.

The visitors were able to hold off an Arsenal rally late in the game to capture the three points, winning 2-1.

The Gunners were in fifth place going into this game, level on points with Tottenham Hotspur, who are now in fourth.

The visitors were looking to end their seven-game losing streak.

The game started out nervously, with neither team being able to create clear-cut chances.

However, after 28 minutes of play, Brighton seized the lead. Mwepu concluded a terrific move by sliding the ball back to Trossard in the centre of the box for a fantastic team goal that puts them ahead.

On the first opportunity, the Belgian scored, placing the ball accurately in the top corner to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

Just before halftime, Martinelli felt he had leveled the score when he headed home a corner that Gabriel had nodded back across goal.

The goal was called off after a lengthy VAR review because the Brazilian teenager was offside, and his team headed into halftime down by a goal.

Mwepu exchanged roles and scored a superb first-time goal when Caicedo saw him on the edge of the box in the 66th minute, increasing the Seagulls’ advantage.

The hosts hit the post twice in a couple of seconds late in the game before an Odegaard long-range attempt deflected off Welbeck and over Sanchez and into the net.

Arteta’s team pushed forward in the last minutes, but a fantastic Sanchez save and a Cucurella clearance off the line were enough to keep the game alive and secure all three points.
