Cech says Brighton loss his fault; Wenger blames Man City losses

Arsenal suffered a second heavy defeat to Manchester City this week as they lost 3-0 at home Arsenal suffered a second heavy defeat to Manchester City this week as they lost 3-0 at home

Arsenal's vocal away support turned on manager Arsene Wenger during the first half of Sunday's game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Defeat on the south coast leaves Arsenal languishing in sixth spot in the Premier League table, 13 points adrift of the top four. Lewis Dunk put Brighton ahead after just seven minutes when Cech failed to punch away a corner, and the veteran goalkeeper was then easily beaten by Glen Murray's header.

Arsenal are in a bad moment following successive defeats to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup and the League, therefore short of confidence going into the game against Brighton.

In the tweet below, Ferdinand claimed that the current Arsenal team is THE worst he has ever seen, regardless of the talent the players possess.

Dunk should have doubled the hosts' lead in the 18th minute but he headed over the crossbar from close range, before Petr Cech produced a fine save to deny Glen Murray from close range.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton admits it may well be the worst time for his Brighton side to face Arsenal, despite the Gunners' poor recent form.

This opinion piece argues that Arsene Wenger is still the most suitable choice for the Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger opted for a change after 75 minutes as former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck replaced Alex Iwobi.

The second goal wasn't unstoppable, but less on Cech.

Arsenal, in the manner true to a team chasing a result, had all of the ball in the closing stages with Aubameyang coming the closest to salvaging a point for his side, but they could not find the equaliser they craved.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Gunners fear finding themselves in a similar situation to when Alexis Sánchez left for Man Utd in the January transfer window, with Arsenal having to settle for a swap deal to bring in Henrikh Mkhitaryan rather than cash-in on the Premier League star.

Incredibly, Arsenal were nearly level on the stroke of half-time when Duffy thudded a header onto his own post and they also had the first major chance of the second period when Mesut Ozil's drive forced a save from Ryan.

The Gunners were also fortunate not to have Sead Kolasinac, who had already been booked, sent off for a challenge that ended Ezequiel Schelotto's involvement.
