Arsenal drew a goalless draw with Brighton in a game that Mikel Arteta has admitted to be one of the best. Cannons shouldn’t get any more.
Brighton played much better. He managed to create 21 chances to score goals. But shot most of the shots and shot on target only 2 times throughout the game, which happened in the last 10 minutes.
Had Brighton’s last stroke been a bit sharper, Graeme Potter’s team should have won 3-4 goals.
“I think it’s one point that deserves it because I don’t think it is. We deserve something better. We can’t control the game at all. We had a hard time surviving the press. They made it difficult for us,” Arteta said.
Arsenal, who recently beaten Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby match, look like a different team in the game at the Amex Stadium because they can’t break their form. You can play with precision, accuracy and speed.
The difference between Spurs and Brighton is that Brighton have a better plan and can use their strengths to the fullest.
Brighton outperformed the Golden Spikes in their efficient and systematic “pressing” , leaving Arsenal in serious trouble setting up the game from behind.
Surviving the press was the decisive point that allowed Arsenal to win the battle of City. Because two of the three goals scored were to quickly press in front of the penalty area and counterattack immediately.
The 2-0 goal started with Aaron Ramsdale’s pass to Granit Xhaka. Who successfully flipped the ball before a quick counter-attack and ended with Emile Smith Rowe’s pass to Pierre-Emerick. Aubameyang hits the net
