Arsenal’s miserable week continued after a lacklustre home display saw us go down 2-1 to Brighton at the Emirates.
In truth, Martin Odegaard’s late goal added some gloss to the scoreline, because on the day Mikel Arteta’s side were a long way from their best. The manager’s decision to start Granit Xhaka at left-back backfired as we lacked midfield control, with Trossard’s first half strike a consequence of that.
There was a long VAR check to disallow a Martinelli goal just before half-time, Mwepu doubled the lead midway through the second half, but there just wasn’t enough about our performance to take anything from this game. Disappointing and frustrating.
Here’s how the players rated this afternoon.
