Arsenal Star Brutally Trolled For Shocking First Half Performance Against Brighton

Arsene Wenger still insisting he is the right man to revive Arsenal despite their latest hammer blow

Arsenal have lost four successive matches in all competitions and are sitting 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham in the league table.

Wenger also blamed "heavy legs" for Arsenal's poor first-half performance, as they went 2-0 down within 30 minutes after goals from Lewis Dunk and Glen Murray.

After Arsenal's embarrassing Carabao Cup final display against Manchester City last weekend, many were expecting a bit of a response from the Gunners last night as they welcomed the same City side to the Emirates.

They came to the Amex Stadium to bury Arsene Wenger, not to praise him.

The arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January haven't provided Wenger the revival he was hoping and confidence of resurrecting the campaign has evaporated. "It is not the first time I have lost so many games in row".

The Gunners' only realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League is through winning the Europa League, but they face a tough tie against AC Milan in the Last 16 on Thursday.

The Gunners provided most of the offense in the opening minutes, but after a few tries at Brighton's goal, a quick Brighton counterattack led to a corner at the other end of the pitch in the 6th minute.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have a baby boy on the way, and the Internet is getting a first look at him before he's even born. Thankfully, the star has said that this time round she is much more prepared, largely due to the fantastic people around her.

Brighton remained in the ascendancy but with two minutes remaining until half time, Arsenal found a way back into the game when Granit Xhaka's pass inside the penalty area picked out Aubameyang, who flicked the ball past Mathew Ryan from seven yards.

Brighton are now unbeaten in seven games in league and FA Cup and optimism had been growing among fans that this would be their day.

Instead, Arsenal were repeatedly pushed back with Cech forced to save well from Gross before Dunk wastefully headed over the bar.

The Gunners have been enduring a hard spell with a recent League Cup final defeat to Man City, an exit from the FA Cup and any realistic hope of finishing in the top four vanishing.

"We are definitely hitting our best form at the right time", Brighton manager Chris Hughton said. Arsenal kept the pressure on and almost equalized as the half came to a close, but Laurent Koscielny's header hit the post and ricocheted away, and the Gunners went into the break trailing by a goal.

The clash with Brighton was a redemption game for an Arsenal side looking to bounce back from three consecutive losses coming against Ostersund and a double against Man City.
