Arsenal, Brighton share spoils at rain-drenched Amex

Arsenal secured a hard-fought point at the American Express Community Stadium following a 0-0 draw with Brighton. 

Arsenal had a better start but Brighton grew into the game with Gabriel forced to make a back-to-back clearance. Trossard found a way in behind Tierney and into the box. He took an age to get the ball into space for the shot and ends up dragging an effort wide of the post. 

The Gunners went close to taking the lead as they hit the woodwork. Saka latched onto a ball over the top of Burn and forced in a deflected cross that looped up towards the back post. Aubameyang looked the second favorite to win it against Dunk but win it he did but his header comes back off the post. 

Penalty claim

Trossard trie his luck from just outside the area, but his deflected effort hits Saka on the hand, but that was purely accidental. 

There was another penalty claim by Arsenal as the ball hit Duffy's hand from a corner. The Gunners were appealing for a penalty but VAR sad it was accidental.
