After back-to-back 3-0 defeats against Manchester City in the last seven days, the Premier League clash against Brighton was seen as a fixture that could be used to regain some lost confidence but it wasn’t long before the Gunners were chasing their tales once again.
The second-half is underway between Brighton and Arsenal where the Seagulls are leading 2-1!
Will we see more celebrations from the home side or can Arsenal turn it around?

Lewis Dunk opened the scoring after heading in from a corner-kick after just seven minutes, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, Glenn Murray doubled their advantage after 26 minutes – and left Arsene Wenger staring into space, and wondering what he’s done to deserve all of this.
Murray’s finish for 2-0 looked suspiciously like a goalkeeping error from Cech, and 35-year-old will remain rooted on 199 Premier League cleansheets for at least another week.
After it was all said and done, the former Chelsea stopper held his hands up on social media – in brutal fashion:
If you want to win a game away of home in the best league in the world your GK can’t concede 2 goals like I did today … it’s simply not possible … The team fought back but the damage was done .

What do you make of Cech’s tweet, and is he right to be so candid?
