Alexis Sanchez attitude the key to Arsenal's season?

Arsenal beat Brighton at the Emirates Monreal managed to get the ball past a crowd of Brighton players to give his side the lead midway through the first half

Iwobi was joined on the scoresheet by defender Nacho Monreal - who netted of his first Premier League goal since March 2013 - to set Arsenal on their way to an 11th straight Emirates win.

Goals in either half from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi ensured Arsenal took maximum points from their second Premier League home game of the week, which came after a 4-2 victory at BATE in the Europa League on Thursday.

An outstanding pass from Alexis Sanchez cued Iwobi up for the second goal, snapping a second half lull.

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 in a fight to restore his tarnished reputation.

The only negatives from today's display at Ashburton Grove was a lack of ruthlessness in front of goal, perhaps because the team was playing within itself and needed something more to spark the forward line, and the empty red seats which could be seen across the stadium, particularly in the upper tiers.

"I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond", said Gunners manager Wenger. "Offensively we were in a bit of a doubt, the fluency was sometimes there, sometimes not". Now we've got the first two wins out of the way we can keep on building. It's very early, seven games played and 31 to go.

A win for Eagles on ten points will effectively seal qualification to Russian Federation 2018 for Nigeria with one game to spare.

Arsenal headed into the last worldwide break on the back of a 4-0 mauling at Anfield which saw some uncomfortable questions asked of them and their manager. It's at board level where things really need changing and supporters should be concerned that majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has made an offer for Alisher Usmanov's shares in the club. We play like this it makes sense that we play like this usually we score in situations like this.

Arsenal are up to fifth following their fourth win out of four home matches this season.

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.

"But the team has reacted well since then".

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has made a decision to take the positives out of his side's 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday. "I can't accuse the lads of not giving everything". However, the main problem with Wenger's sides over the years has always been consistency and being able to maintain their level during key periods in the season.
