ARSENE WENGER celebrated his 21st anniversary as Arsenal manager with a comfortable win over Brighton and a brilliant team goal scored by Alex Iwobi.

Following the 4-0 defeat at Liverpool, Wenger's side have won six of their seven fixtures and earned a point at reigning champions Chelsea.

"Brighton are a very good team and they made it hard for us, but it's a great result to win the game and come out with a clean sheet", Iwobi told his club's website after the win.

Arsenal were playing intricate football and opened the scoring on 17 minutes through Nacho Monreal.

Wenger who marked 21 years in charge of the Premier League giants against the South Coast side at the Emirates on Sunday said of Iwobi: "A player like that must score ten goals".

Considering how little he has played for the club in the last few years, few Arsenal players get as much media attention as Jack Wilshere does.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 31 Premier League matches against newly promoted sides (W26 D5), collecting 83 points from a possible 93, since losing 1-2 to QPR in March 2012.

The Trojans (4-1, 1-0 Sun Belt) led 17-0 early in the third quarter and by 24-7 midway through the fourth quarter, and held on. He found wide receiver Russell Gage for a 34-yard touchdown pass with 7:41 to play in the game, cutting Troy's lead to 24-14.

From the resulting set piece, Kolasinac rose above the Brighton defence and beat Ryan with his header, but his effort was cleared off the line by a defender.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed he was pleased with his team's recovery following a disappointing start to the campaign.

"Our last global break was a nightmare, this one was a bit better". "I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has", stressed the Gunners forward to BBC Sports.

'Let's hope that the players come back in a good shape'.

"We have only played seven games, and there are 31 to go", he said. You're not good in a permanent way, if you don't keep your urgency. No current Premier League player has more assists than Ozil after 100 appearances, with 36.

If I'm not mistaken we already have two Welsh clubs in our leagues, and there has been debate for many years about whether Celtic and Rangers should be offered a place down South, but how would you feel if Barcelona joined us?
