Arsenal player ratings: Brighton (A)

Calum Chambers – 5

"We are too far behind".

He said: "We are talking about shall he quit or not - I can never say that". His win percentage over 1,220 games at Arsenal is 57.2%, which is downright unbelievable. You have to earn the right to play that kind of football and you can not just rock up on the pitch to win. "We have to continue, first to recover now. We are going through a tough time".

In the past it was easy, he had the likes of Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams in his squad, all players who had "winner" written all over them.

Arsenal struggled to produce anything creative against a courageous Brighton side at the AMEX.

"But I have enough experience and enough desire to turn things around", Wenger told Sky Sports after the match.

"I think we just had to concentrate on ourselves", he told Press Association Sport.

As for Cech, I'm not entirely sure he will go down as a clever signing by the club.

"It was cagey after they got one goal back, they had the better of the second half, but we hung in there".

Before the meeting, each member was individually surveyed and asked if they support Wenger remaining as manager of the club beyond the 2017/18 season.

Intensity the key for Newcastle at Liverpool, says Rafa Benitez
So, who will be picked? Huddersfield can go into the Tottenham game this weekend and if they lose it's no big deal. Liverpool recall Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson for their Premier League clash with Newcastle United .

He said,"We know we are in a bad situation, a bad period".

"What can I say?"

"I didn't want to gamble today for a physical setback, so I left him completely out of the squad".

Lewis Dunk put Brighton ahead when he hooked the ball home from a corner after it dropped to him inside the six-yard box.

Brighton went up 1-0 when Pascal Grob settled in for a corner kick in the 26th minute.

After taking a lead in the first half, Brighton professionally dealt with Arsenal's attacks after the break, pushing their players into less unsafe areas of the field.

However, Arsenal failed to fight back after the break as they slumped to their fourth straight defeat in all competitions.

Arsenal sits in sixth place in the Premier League standings, 13 points behind fourth-place Tottenham and an astounding 30 points behind first-place Manchester City.

Brighton, meanwhile, took another huge step towards Premier League survival, but Murray says the job isn't done yet despite moving seven points clear of the bottom three.
