Wenger says 'humility' his biggest lesson in 21 years at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has now beaten 45 different opponents in the @premierleague, more than any other manager (Alex Ferguson, 44).

It is said talks have already started with Wilshere and the Gunners are hopeful of reaching an agreement with him by the end of the year. It's very early, seven games played, 31 to go.

The Lagos-born forward notched the Gunners second goal in a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton that pushes the North Londoners up to fifth place.

Brighton's hopes for the season stretch little further than survival, a task that will only be made harder by the lack of a striker. Brighton struggled to find any sort of rhythm on the day, but almost found an equalizer in the first half when Solly March blasted a long-distance effort off the post.

Spaniard Nacho Monreal opened the scoring for Arsenal 16 minutes into the match at Emirates Stadiu, reports Efe. Arsenal lies below Chelsea, who have the same points tally but only sits atop on goal difference. The match starts at 22:00 on 1 October 2017.

Facing a Brighton team lacking impetus without a single striker on the pitch, Arsenal did not have to overexert itself to see off the south-coast side at the Emirates Stadium.

Two of Arsenal's core players, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Oezil were dropped from the squad due to injury and failed to pass medical tests. I knew that after the game at Liverpool, everybody did write us off.

"I'll be looking forward after the global break - having hopefully made the next stage of World Cup qualification with Australia - to come back to Everton at home for hopefully another special day that we can turn into three points for us". It was a hard week because the game at BATE was a hard game.

He also remarked "We were light anyway, with Sam Baldock being out and Glenn Murray not being available for a good period now".

"But we're a new team coming into this division and learning. We could have done more, but okay".

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton addressed reporters ahead of Sunday's game at Arsenal. "They will score goals if we defend and can help with a clean sheet it is much better".
