Arsenal’s winning run came to an end as Brighton claimed a point in a goalless draw against Mikel Arteta’s side at the Amex Stadium.

The hosts dominated much of the first half in treacherous conditions with Lewis Dunk coming closest to finding the back of the net. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still managed to hit the post with a header as Arsenal struggled for control.

Brighton continued to control things into the second half before Nicolas Pepe and Alexander Lacazette were introduced off the bench to give the Gunners a different dimension in attack.

Emile Smith Rowe forced Robert Sanchez into a good save at his near post while Brighton struggled to translate their superior possession into genuine chances to find the back of the Arsenal net.

However, no breakthrough was made as Brighton claimed a point to lift themselves up to fifth in the table with Arsenal extending their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four games.
