A last minuted goal by Brighton saw Arsenal suffer a second consecutive English Premier League loss in less than a week.

Arsenal took the lead in the 68th minute through Nicholas Pepe but the lead was canceled seven minutes later by Dunk.

Things were leveled until the 95th minute when Maupay sunk the hearts of Arsenal fans and that of coach Mikel Arteta.

The results were a typical Gunners performance especially when the need could raise their chances to join the Champions League come end of the season.

Their first EPL return match against Manchester City saw them go down 3-0 thanks to David Luiz blunder gifting Raheim Sterling with the opener.

At the end of the match Luiz blamed himself for the loss saying it was his fault from the defensive blunder to a red card that left his teammates vulnareble.

Saturday’s defeat left team at position 9 with 40 points, three points behind Tottenham who drew with Manchester United on Friday.

Brighton now stand at position 15 with 32 points, five points clear of the relegation zone currently occupied by Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich.
