Arsene Wenger Reveals the Key to Partnership Between Alexis Sanchez & Alexandre Lacazette

Predicted Arsenal XI v Brighton

Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi netted either side of half time as the Gunners registered their fourth league clean sheet in a row and equalled a club record of nine successive wins at home dating back until March.

But the long-serving French manager is demanding more from the player who hit his sixth Arsenal goal, and his fifth at home. after Nacho Monreal's first half strike put the North Londoners ahead.

Arsenal were in control of the game and a neat one - two between Alexis Sanchez and Alex Iwobi saw Iwobi's low effort saved by Matthew Ryan in the Brighton goal. "Overall, football changed a lot in this 21 years", Wenger said.

This is a game they were expected to win, and they head into the worldwide break on a positive note, with a clean sheet and three points.

It was a result which proved something of a turnaround for Arsenal, who have won three and drawn 0-0 at Chelsea since their Anfield humiliation.

'Our last global break was a nightmare, this one is a bit better, ' said Wenger.

"It was a hard week because the game at Bate (Europa League matchday 2 clash on Thursday) was a hard game".

This has led to renewed questioning by some Arsenal fans as to whether Wenger should continue at the helm, especially as the Gunners have dropped out of the Champions League this season. "But I don't think they have gotten as far as that", he said.

Chris Hughton's side created a few chances in the final few minutes of the game and could have got a goal back.

"When you are promoted team, as we are, it makes it even more trickier but I certainly felt there were more positives than negatives". Let's hope this can get tied up soon and Wilshere can get back into the starting lineup on a regular basis.

"Probably there is more pressure on Arsenal to to win the game than on ourselves - most people wouldn't expect us to get anything but that's the great opportunity we have". You're not good in a permanent way, if you don't keep your urgency.

Liverpool will face Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday, while Arsenal will take on Brighton and Hove Albion.
