Brighton beat Arsenal with a nice performance and having the ball possession at half-time with a 1-0 win in the first 45th minutes of the game to welcome the Gunners interim manager Freddie Ljungberg with a heavy defeat at Emirate Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette (50) had earlier cancelled out Adam Webster’s (36) opener with a bizarre flicked header from a corner but Arsenal – who had a David Luiz strike rightly ruled out by VAR for offside at 1-1 – couldn’t find another way through, with Mat Ryan making a fine stop late on to deny substitute Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal, who have now gone nine games without a win in all competitions, remain down in 10th place in the Premier League and trail fourth-placed Chelsea by 10 points. Brighton, meanwhile, have pulled four points clear of the relegation zone and are up to 13th.
