And Wenger said the mood had changed completely, adding: "Just before our last global break was a nightmare, but this one is a bit better".

Sead Kolasinac went close to scoring a third goal, but March managed to clear his header off the line in the nick of time.

The goal was only the Spaniard's second in the league - and first for more than four years - and only a fine save from Brighton keeper Matt Ryan prevented Aaron Ramsey doubling their lead just before the interval.

That was how the game ended as Arsene Wenger's side won their fourth consecutive game in all competitions.

Sanchez then inspired the Gunners to net their second when his brilliant back-heel set up Alex Iwobi in the 56th minute for Arsenal's second.

Arsene Wenger has said it's "too early" to make any assumptions with regards to this season's title race as he reflected on another Arsenal win here at the Emirates.

"Mesut Ozil will not be available for Sunday", said Wenger in his pre-match press conference with what he calls a "very short-term" injury.

"I would have loved to be able to continue to play, but we can not do anything about that", Wenger said after his side's 2-0 league win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Alexis Sanchez has recorded 11 top-flight assists since the start of last season - more than other Arsenal player.

"On one side, if he doesn't want to play for the team you could say it would have been better to sell him for good money".

"I just don't think they are good enough at the moment". Alexandre Lacazette scored his first Arsenal goal within two minutes against Leicester City and he almost repeated the trick against Brighton.

To follow Monday's 2-0 defeat of West Brom and Thursday's 4-2 Europa League win at BATE Borisov, Arsenal made a professional (and pretty much anxiety-free) job of beating Brighton. "I was told by the press".

Brighton gave a good account of themselves in North London, but they remain without an away win in the top flight since gaining promotion in May.

"Last year after six games Manchester City were top with 18 points, so let's not go to quick conclusions".
