Arsenal wins 4-2 against Brighton to increase their advantage to 7 points.

With a 4-2 victory over Brighton, Arsenal increased its lead in the Premier League to seven points. Gabriel Martinelli’s well-executed breakaway goal gave Arsenal the victory.

By the 47th minute, Arsenal was up 3-0 and appeared to be cruising to an easy victory thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Eddie Nketiah. However, a goal from Kaoru Mitoma kept Brighton in the game 25 minutes from the end.

Then, Martinelli received a magnificent throughball from Odegaard, allowing him to go halfway across the field and score a fourth to restore the three-goal lead.

Evan Ferguson, a Brighton replacement, scored his first Premier League goal in the 77th minute, and Mitoma thought he had set up a thrilling finish with a goal in the 89th, but it was ruled offside.

The victory allowed Arsenal to fully capitalise on second-place City’s error earlier, as the defending champion was held to a 1-1 draw at home against Everton. Despite an unduly tense finish. With a 0-0 stalemate against Leeds, third-place Newcastle’s six-game winning streak came to an end.

The title competition still has a “far, long way to go,” according to Mikel Arteta, manager of Arsenal. “When I enter the locker room and hear the players discussing what they could have done better today, that’s when I get excited. And that indicates that they are aware of our potential for improvement. Brighton had won three of its previous four games, but Saka gave the visitors the lead less than a minute in by reacting fast to control a Martinelli drive that was deflected before sidefooting into the goal.

Despite almost setting up Martinelli for a second with some amazing footwork in the box, Odegaard ended up doubling the advantage himself in the 39th minute as Arsenal’s main orchestrator in midfield. Following a corner, the ball fell to the Norway international in the area, and despite his poor effort into the ground, it rebounded brilliantly to into the back of the net.

After the break, Nketiah appeared to put the outcome beyond question when he was on hand to score off a rebound after another shot from Martinelli, giving him two goals in as many starts in place of injured striker Gabriel Jesus.

However, Brighton resisted giving up, and Mitoma stayed just onside to receive a pass in the area and slip a shot past Aaron Ramsdale to give the hosts some hope.

Brighton rushed forward at once, but Odegaard punished them with a perfectly timed first-touch pass that set Martinelli free on the break. From halfway, the Brazilian outran Tariq Lamptey before placing low behind Robert Sanchez for the fourth place.

On the sidelines, Arteta joyfully embraced the goal, but there was still a lot of drama for him to deal with.

William Saliba’s poor defending allowed 18-year-old striker Ferguson to slither in and poke a significant goal through Ramsdale’s legs.

When Mitoma deflected his second goal of the contest into the bottom right corner, the Gunners appeared to be in serious danger of losing two points.

However, the VAR quickly put an end to the celebrations before the visitors could use the six minutes of extra time to tighten their grip on first place.
