Arsenal 0-3 Brighton: Gunners' title hopes dealt another blow

Arsenal 0-3 Brighton: Gunners’ Premier League title hopes are all but OVER as Arteta’s side are BATTERED at the Emirates by brilliant Seagulls with Enciso, Undav and Estupinan all on target

  • Manchester City are a win away from the Premier League table after Arsenal’s 3-0 loss to Brighton
  • After a goalless first half, Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav and Pervis Estupinan all scored in an impressive win
  • The Gunners, who were recently eight points clear at the top of the league, have one two of their last seven 

Arsenal’s title hopes were dealt a further blow on Sunday as they were beaten 3-0 by Brighton at the Emirates.

Julio Enciso scored the opener, as he headed in a cross from Pervis Estupinan just after half time. Deniz Undav then added a second with a classy chip following a botched clearance from Leandro Trossard, who swapped Brighton for Arsenal in January.

Pervis Estupinan made it three when he poked in a spilled save from Aaron Ramsdale in second half injury time. 

Roebrto de Zerbi’s side had more of the ball, and when the Gunners did win it back they lacked edge in their passing and in front of goal.

The result means Man City stay four points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand over Arsenal.
