EPL: A real 'late' goal helps Arsenal beat Brighton 4-0

Fittingly, Wenger marked his milestone date with a notable record of his own.

Meanwhile, Chris Wood failed to get on the score sheet for Burnley but his Clarets are up to sixth in the English Premier League after a 1-nil win at Everton to pile the misery on Toffees boss ROnald Koeman.

Arsene Wenger lamented on Sunday that Arsenal's recent upturn in form will be interrupted by next week's worldwide break.

Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United held his former team Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at St James's Park Sunday, a result that left the visitors seven points off the Manchester clubs at the top of the Premier League.

Alexandre Lacazette nearly opened the scoring after just two minutes, with the Frenchman mustering a cracking long-range effort which flew back off the frame of the Brighton goal.

The Gunners are now unbeaten in seven games across all competitions following that humbling defeat at Anfield.

The England forward impressed in his role behind Olivier Giroud and alongside Jack Wilshere, but will not be retained against Brighton because of Wenger's plans to protect his players from a demanding schedule.

Nacho Monreal has expressed his happiness at Arsenal's form since being thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool at the end of August.

Lacazette thought he had opened the scoring in the third minute but his shot went off the post.

Brighton, making a maiden trip to Emirates Stadium and their first away day at the Gunners since 1983, nearly equalised moments later when midfielder Solly March thudded an upright from 20 yards. The Gunners more than deserved their lead.

Iwobi: 7 - Always does the gritty work in the midfield and managed to pick up his first goal of the season.

Cech; Holding, Mustafi, Monreal; Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Sanchez; Lacazette.

Faced with three Albion defenders, Sanchez knew a shot would be blocked, so he instinctively guided a back-heel towards the unmarked Iwobi, who had the simple task of firing home from eight yards.

Just minutes after the interval a clever dinked cross from Sanchez nearly resulted in an own goal for Brighton, however Ryan's safe hands spared Shane Duffy's blushes.
