As for Arsene Wenger, he's missing any decent answers at all.

A vastly improved performance followed, but they lost momentum after a tangle between Ezequiel Schelotto and Sead Kolisinac which led to an extended stoppage time while Schelotto was treated for a potential head injury.

The Amex Stadium will be the 57th ground at which Arsenal have played a Premier League game - they've won at 50 of the previous 56.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the win, which lifts Brighton into the top half of the division, Hughton hailed his players for showing the "ugly side" of their game.

New Customers can get Arsenal at an enhanced 25/1 to beat Brighton.


Instead, Arsenal betrayed the defensive frailties that have been a feature of their campaign and allowed Brighton to take control. Cech was slow to collect a back post corner kick, which was nodded back across goal to an unmarked Lewis Dunk.

The early lead gave Brighton confidence.

Hector Bellerin has been dropped for Calum Chambers following the poor displays up against City winger Leroy Sane and links to Juventus, while Alex Iwobi starts in midfield. As the game continued, the aerial dominance of the home side was clear to see.

Arsenal began confidently, pressing Brighton at every opportunity.

Glenn Murray rose to head home a Pascal Gross cross after Laurent Koscielny had given the ball away. Arsenal's entire defence looked shaky whenever pressed, Koscielny's contribution to the second goal proving a case in point. Former colleges of Wenger have always praised the Frenchman for his ability to go back to basics.


However, Arsenal could not create the killer chance to snatch a point and the final whistle was greeted with much anger from their fans.

Take nothing away from Brighton - they were great. Arsenal kept the pressure on and almost equalized as the half came to a close, but Laurent Koscielny's header hit the post and ricocheted away, and the Gunners went into the break trailing by a goal. It's not good enough.

Arsenal is in sixth place and destined for another year out of the Champions League, unless it can win the Europa League to earn a direct passage to Europe's top competition.

Arsenal have the opportunity to change the tide with a much-needed away win to Brighton, now 12th in the Premier League, after criticism from pundits such as Gary Neville aimed at the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka.

To all Arsenal Supporters who want Arsene Wenger out as soon as possible, the truth is that they should be careful what they wish for.
