Defences on top as Arsenal held by Brighton

 


Arsenal’s three-game winning run came to an end at Brighton as the teams played out a 0-0 draw in wet and windy conditions at The Amex.

In a game that produced 29 shots, 21 of those from Brighton, both teams were guilty of lacking a clinical final finish as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit the post for the Gunners and Shane Duffy squandered the hosts’ best chance late on.

It means it was another clean sheet for the Arsenal defensive axis of Aaron Ramsdale, Gabriel Magalhaes and Ben White, who have only conceded one goal in their last four Premier League games. Ramsdale had to be at his best in the final 10 minutes, making three saves to help his team to a gritty point.

The result leaves Brighton in fifth place ahead of the international break and Arsenal in ninth.
