Arsene Wenger Beat An Impressive Sir Alex Ferguson Record, Yesterday


Iwobi, who is one of the 23 players invited by Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr for Saturday's Russian Federation 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo, scored Arsenal's second goal to help the Gunners defeat Brighton 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in London on Sunday.

Since capping a turbulent August with a awful 4-0 loss at Liverpool, Arsenal have since won six and drawn at Chelsea.

"We kept a clean sheet in the next game as well and that was important for us because we know we have top players up front who are going to score goals".

Arsenal were playing intricate football and opened the scoring on 17 minutes through Nacho Monreal.

Goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi, coming either side of half-time, ensured the hosts picked up all three points in a result that moves them level with Chelsea on 13 points - six behind the two Manchester clubs.

Wenger this week claimed Arsenal are a more unified team since the transfer window closed just after their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.

Arsenal are in good form at the moment and are playing good football, and the Gunners should be able to pick up all three points form the match against Brighton easily.

It was painful viewing for Everton manager Ronale Koeman, whose side has lost four of its seven matches this season.

'They've got the class, they've got the skill, they've got everything, but they work hard at the same time - that's what makes them world class.

Will Alex Ferguson's record be the last one Le Professeur breaks as Arsenal manager?

"When you are promoted team, as we are, it makes it even more trickier but I certainly felt there were more positives than negatives".

"Nothing is permanent. You're not bad in a permanent way".

And Arsenal reportedly hope they can reach a deal with the player, who joined the North London club when he was nine, by the end of the year.

"We work on the partnership in training but the best way is to play games together, so I believe that will come quickly".

"Probably there is more pressure on Arsenal to to win the game than on ourselves - most people wouldn't expect us to get anything but that's the great opportunity we have".
