Iwobi scores as Arsenal beat Brighton on Wenger's 21st anniversary

Predicted Arsenal XI v Brighton

Abuja - Arsenal maintained their flawless home record this season by comfortably beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in an English Premier League early kickoff fixture on Sunday.

Arsenal, who have also claimed back-to-back Europa League wins and a Carabao Cup triumph since losing at Anfield, now head into the worldwide break level on 13 points with fourth-placed Chelsea and six behind the table-topping Manchester clubs.

Alex Iwobi is pleased with Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium.

There are many reasons for Arsenal fans to look back fondly on the day Wenger was hired but, after several years of underachievement, the Frenchman finds himself engaged in a fight to restore his tarnished reputation.

Alexis Sanchez was a key player in Arsenal's victory on Sunday, providing a back-heeled assist for Iwobi's goal - the 35th Premier League goal he has been involved in since the beginning of last season, more than double any other Arsenal player.

Despite his goal, Wenger said the player... "But once it settles in and we go through the game again, I think there are more positives to come from the game than negatives".

"It's very early - seven games played, 31 to go", he said. You know we want to have the ball, we want to dictate the game, we want to combine at a quick pace. The Gunners moved the ball quickly early, and Mathew Ryan had little time to breathe, with Alexis Sanchez putting him to work with a low shot.

"When you come here you know it's going to be a hard afternoon", Hughton told Sky Sports News after the game.

Arsenal were by far the better side from the first whistle.

Arsenal beat Brighton 2-0 to move up to fifth in the table, level on points with reigning champions Chelsea.

"It was a great team play", Iwobi told the BBC.

"After the game at Liverpool, everybody wrote us off". We penetrated well and we had a few moments where we got in the box but just couldn't get the final touch at the end.

Chris Hughton's side lie 14th after seven games.

"We kept the clean sheet and of course got three points".
