Predicted Brighton XI v Arsenal

But, sharing a point is not an option for Arsenal against Brighton as they will be aiming for full three points and even catch Chelsea on points as the Blues are on 13 points.

Without the suspended Tomer Hemed, Brighton posed a limited attacking threat and a moment of brilliance from Alexis Sanchez, who backheeled the ball deftly in the penalty area, set up the second for Alex Iwobi on 56 minutes.

Alexandre Lacazette nearly opened the scoring after just two minutes, with the Frenchman mustering a cracking long-range effort which flew back off the frame of the Brighton goal.

Alexandre Lacazette almost gave the hosts a dream start, hitting the post with a clever half-volley after some good work from Iwobi. As Brighton's defenders claimed for a goal-kick, Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin had shots blocked before Monreal finally found space to poke in his first league goal since March 2013 in the 16th minute.

Philippe Coutinho gave Liverpool the lead with a superb 25-yard curler but more poor defending allowed Joselu to equalise with a fortunate finish before the break.

With the result all but settled, the game became a means for Sanchez get the goal his efforts deserved.

Kelly Bryant leads No. 2 Clemson past No. 12 Hokies, 31-17
The Virginia Tech students, alumni and fans, all 65,632 who streamed into Lane Stadium Saturday night, were primed for an upset. But Clemson (9.3 points allowed) and Virginia Tech (10.3 points allowed) have defenses that would indicate a low-scoring game.

Monreal's opening goal arrived after Alexandre Lacazette was denied by the post during the early stages for Arsene Wenger's side, although Solly March was similarly close to a Brighton equaliser before half-time. Brighton were very unlucky not to be level.

Murray eventually arrived on the field as a late substitute and caused problems for Arsenal; his wide header of Gross' cross showed what Brighton are missing.

A weak shot that followed a powerful solo run in the 28th minute had been a case in point.

The Gunners scored twice but it should have been more.

Having spent last season on loan at AFC Bournemouth, the England global found himself back in the Emirates treatment room when an ankle injury suffered in the Cherries 0 - 4 drubbing at White Hart Lane. Arsene Wenger likes to give his players freedom, and whilst it can result in attractive football, it can also leave gaps in front of the defence, and poor decision making in the final third when coming up against sides who are well organised.
