Arsenal fans were unsurprisingly pleased with another three points after the 2-0 win over Brighton.
Goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi ensured Arsenal would go into the international break with six wins from their last seven games.
A busy week that saw us play at home to West Brom on Monday and travel to Belarus to play BATE Borisov on Thursday perhaps played a part as Arsenal never found top gear against Brighton.
Nonetheless, the fans were happy with another three points and the continuation of our good run of form.

Good win but could have been more. Keeps the run going. #ARSBHA

A reminder Chamberlain hasn't started a PL game since he left and Arsenal haven't conceded a goal either.

Monreal gave Arsenal the early lead, sparking hopes that we’d see a comprehensive Arsenal victory.
However, Arsenal lacked a bit of fluency during the game and weren’t quite as ruthless in the final third as they should be.
Nonetheless a win is a win. There’s no doubt Arsenal have benefited from a kinder run of fixtures.
Home games against Bournemouth, Cologne, Doncaster, West Brom and now Brighton were just what the club needed after a tumultuous August.
Provided nobody gets injured during the international break, Arsenal should be in decent shape when they travel to Watford on August 14th.
Arsenal also face tricky tips to Everton and Red Star Belgrade in October, while welcoming Norwich and Swansea to the Emirates Stadium.
