"I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond", said Gunners manager Wenger.

These landmark days have not gone well for the Gunners in recent years so to get over this one and mark it with a very professional win says a lot, to me anyway, about Wenger and the squad.

Arsenal now have to wait until October 14 for their next match, away to Watford in the Premier League.

First, Arsenal host Brighton.

Brighton's Solly March also hit the post in the first-half after a short free kick.

Alexis Sanchez was a key player in Arsenal's victory on Sunday, providing a back-heeled assist for Iwobi's goal - the 35th Premier League goal he has been involved in since the beginning of last season, more than double any other Arsenal player.

Qualifying fourth on the grid was Daniel Ricciardo , completing the second row lockout for the Milton-Keynes squad. The Englishman revealed his crew had worked until 2am on Saturday morning in a bid to rectify the issue.

It is too early to predict whether Arsenal can end their 13-year wait to win a fourth Premier League title under Wenger, but there were some encouraging signs as Brighton were put to the sword at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal lies below Chelsea, who have the same points tally but only sits atop on goal difference. While one of those goals was from the penalty spot, he has started very well and has scored in every home match for the Gunners so far this season, including both goals on Monday against West Bromwich Albion.

"When you come here, you know it's going to be a hard afternoon, you know it is", Hughton said.

"I think Alex Iwobi is the kind of player who helps you get out of pressure by showing good availability". Ozil missed out again through injury, however Arsenal have arguably played the best they have for a while without the German in the side.

"After Liverpool we talked because we can't play as we did. We lost 4-0, and the team was really poor", said Monreal, whose goal was his first since 2013. It's very hard to be very expansive here, particularly when you are a team like we are that's just been promoted.

Meanwhile, Brighton boss Chris Hughton struck a positive note after the game, pointing to his side's "spirited performance".

'We kept the clean sheet and of course got three points.
