Brighton snatches the three points from Arsenal

Brighton won 2-1 away against Arsenal in the 32nd leg of the English Premier League on Saturday.

After a remarkable run of results, the “Gunners” reverted to form, finishing third in the league in the final four games.

Arsenal’s balance has stalled at 54 points from 30 games, putting them in fifth place.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring for Brighton with a shot from inside the area (28).

The Spanish coach Mikel Arteta’s team thought the result was fair when Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli followed the ball with his head from close range after a vertical pass from his compatriot Gabriel, but the goal was canceled due to offside after a lengthy review by the Video Assistant Referee “VAR.”

Zambia’s Enock Mwepu doubled the score with a spectacular goal after Ecuadorian Moises Caicedo lifted the ball, followed by his teammate low “on the fly” from the edge of the area with his right in the bottom right corner of keeper Aaron Ramsdale’s goal (66).

Norwegian Martin Odegaard closed the gap with a long-range left-foot shot that deflected off one of the players before falling into the top right corner (89).

With a superb header from Eddie Nketiah (90+5), Spanish goalkeeper Robert Sanchez denied Arsenal a goal in stoppage time.

Leeds United won against Watford 3-0 to remain unbeaten in their last four games (3 wins and a draw). They are nine points ahead of Burnley, who hold the first relegation spot, despite having played three fewer games.
