Ebene News – FI – Brighton – Arsenal: Three things we learned from the Gunners’ win

Brighton v Arsenal: Gunners claim back-to-back Premier League wins for the second time this season (not 1 and 2 games) after scoring 1-0 at Amex Stadium on Tuesday

Alexandre Lacazette scored the game’s only goal in the 66th minute, securing three points that push Arsenal to 13th in the Premier League table Brighton, on the other hand, falls in 17th

1 45 minutes of… nothing from Arsenal: Maybe you watched Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday and you’re like, ‘Finally Arteta unlocked the attack”Yeah no How about a shot in 45 minutes for the Gunners, against eight for Brighton? Command well and truly restored

2 A Different Team After Half: Maybe it was a scorching team speech from Arteta, or a minor tactical change to something observed in the first half – whatever the case , Arsenal had made a full 180 by the time they reappeared for Game 2 Rather than concede the middle third of the pitch and allow Brighton to pass into the final third, Arsenal put pressure on the ball higher up the pitch and , there you go, won it higher up on the pitch Starting their counterattack 20 or 30 meters closer to the opponent’s goal has proven to be an effective strategy

3 Superstar Saka: Arsenal appear to have yet another local superstar in the making, as Bukayo Saka continues to perform at a very high level at just 19 years old Virtually everything the Gunners created on Tuesday had his fingerprints all over the place Unfortunately for the young he was forced to leave with an injury in the 81st minute, although the move seemed to be more careful than anything else

The first half was entirely in Brighton, in the sense that they had the only decent halfway look at the goal The Seagulls found some joy on the left wing in the 36th minute, as Bernardo chose Alireza Jahanbakhsh 12 meters from goal Jahanbakhsh unleashed a low strike towards the goal, but it was not long before Bernd Leno descended to his right and stopped

Finally, Arsenal created a point blank scoring chance and forced Robert Sanchez to make a tough 50th minute save Saka rushed down the right flank and crossed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the near post, where the Gabon international redirected the ball towards the goal, only to be denied by a fantastic reaction stoppage

Lacazette made the difference just seconds after entering the game, but again, it’s Saka where the danger started Saka accelerated down the right flank again and picked Lacazette near the penalty spot The Frenchman’s first touch (of the match and movement) was flawless, and the finish was just as good under pressure
