Chris Hughton's side are beginning to look comfortable in the Premier League

EXCLUSIVE- Chris Hughton admits Arsenal are Brighton's biggest test but says Seagulls full of belief

Arsenal hosted Brighton & Hove Albion on matchday 7 of the Premier League on the back of an emphatic 4-2 win over BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

Manager Arsene Wenger was not impressed with his club.

The Spanish defender last found the back of net in the league in a 2-0 Gunners victory at Swansea on March 16, 2013.

Arsenal's Nacho Monreal celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game with teammates during the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, London. "Hopefully it's only a matter of time before we can come to a place like this and start getting more than we've gotten today".

Arsenal's next game will be against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday, 14 October. The first 10 minutes saw the home team with 77 percent of possession as a wall of yellow shirts soaked up pressure but the breach was not long in coming.

"Alex Iwobi might be available for Sunday, of course, Coquelin and Welbeck are not available", Wenger said. Perhaps they have finally learned their lesson.

After an extremely quiet opening period, the Chile forward grew into the game and caused the Seagulls all sorts of second-half problems. "I was told by the press".

In second half of the game, youngster Iwobi was beautifully set up by Alexis Sanchez for a goal in 56th minute.

That being said, the Eagles offense hasn't inspired a lot of confidence when it comes to putting up a ton of points. Rivers has to cut down on the turnovers and the offensive line needs to give him enough time to find his receivers.

The Nigerian worldwide, who was a major doubt for the Gunners clash, finished off a backheeled assist from Alexis Sanchez in the 56th minute after Nacho Monreal had shot Arsenal into the lead in the 16th minute.

Alexis Sanchez has recorded 11 top-flight assists since the start of last season - more than other Arsenal player. Iwobi, who impressed with a hugely disciplined performance in September 17's goalless draw with Chelsea, was back after a thigh strain and added an energetic dimension. A typical Arsenal goal.

"He looked professional rather than angry that he didn't get his move to Manchester City".

Having previously been peripheral, Sanchez began to cut in more often from his left-wing station, demanding the ball from colleagues, while there were signs that he and Lacazette are developing an understanding. Lacazette has been no exception to that with four goals in 418 minutes.

Wenger was referring to the efforts made by Arsenal to promote inclusivity at at the club, after Matt Lucas, honorary President of the Gay Gooners supporters club, made a passionate speech on the Emirates pitch at half-time today. His position is taken over by Izzy Brown.

In between, Arsenal had looked unsafe on the counter and the match became less even.

During the game, Solly March hit the Arsenal woodwork and Brighton enjoyed a good spell in the final stages of the encounter as they sought a response against their opponents.
