Arsenal has moved into fifth place in the Premier League table with a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in a Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium.

The 30-year-old, who scored the victor in his side's 1-0 victory, appeared to stamp on Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin in the 88th minute.

Arsenal's multiple injury concerns won't be too much of a problem for this one, Wenger's side has enough quality in depth to challenge for the result against a stubborn Brighton team.

'We want final balls and goals as well. "It is always going to be hard here, levels of concentration have to be for 90 minutes". Games like this against the top sides are not the ones that will decide the fate of Brighton, but any points from these matches could be invaluable to the Seagulls.

Wenger confirmed that injured trio Laurent Koscielny (Achilles), Danny Welbeck (groin) and Mesut Ozil (knee) will not join up with France, England and Germany, respectively, before calling for patience at the club this season.

For long periods this was a session of attack vs. defence, with Chris Hughton's team sitting back and defending deeply, forcing Arsenal to try to find their way through.

The major blow to Brighton, though, is the absence of joint-top scorer Tomer Hemed, who has been slapped with a three-match ban for a stamp on Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin last weekend.

Izzy Brown, on loan from Chelsea but absent since pulling his hamstring in the 24th minute of Brighton's opening match of the season, was their furthest player forward.

The goal was only the Spaniard's second in the league - and first for more than four years.

LIVERPOOL: Jeff Hendrick completed a 24-pass move to give Burnley a 1-0 victory at Everton on Sunday and extend the team's best start to a Premier League season.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to be offered a new four year deal to stay at the club according to reports.

"We have a good understanding and nobody would walk away easily from a club like Arsenal".

Two months later, he netted in a Premier League meeting with Swansea.

While he was undoubtedly the Championship's star player previous year, he seems to be finding the step up in quality problematic, with faster and more astute defenders now standing in his way. Wenger, who was hired by Arsenal on October 1 1996, will hope there is more to come.
