All is bright for Arsenal, Wenger

Arsenal maintained their flawless home record by comfortably beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0, while Everton's poor start to the season continued as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Burnley.

Arsenal will take on Brighton at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal's Nacho Monreal celebrates scoring his team's first goal against Brighton during an EPL match in London yesterday.

Arsenal now have 13 points from seven games and sits at 5th place in the league table.

An Alexis Sanchez back-heel pass in the Brighton box in the 56th minute presented Iwobi with an opportunity to score and the Nigerian forward did not fail to oblige.

Goals either side of half-time from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi earned a 2-0 success against the Seagulls and continued the Gunners' recent resurgence.

Yet Hughton is the last manager of a newly-promoted side to beat Arsenal on their own turf, when his Newcastle team won 1-0 in 2010.

"I would say that we kept a clean sheet, we got the points", he said of the Gunners' current state. "I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has".

"This time we are going into an worldwide break in better shape".

Iwobi added that Arsenal made the 2-0 win over Brighton look so easy. "We have played more fluently than today but playing Monday, Thursday and today, it was important to get three points", said Wenger, who celebrated the 21st anniversary of his arrival at Arsenal in winning style.

Centre-back Mustafi then glanced the ball marginally wide of his own goal as Brighton began to lay siege to Cech's goal in search of a goal which would only increase the nervousness in the Arsenal defensive third.

"We responded in a united way and put some good wins together, and performances as well".

'The question mark is there when you change so many players, can you keep cohesion? If that organisation can survive the return of the creative German we will wait and see, but for now it is wonderful to see a little more control and discipline.
