Arsenal suffered a shock defeat at home to Brighton as the baron run stretches to nine games without a win.

Freddie Ljungberg was given a warm welcome by The Emirates crowd for his first home match as caretaker boss on Thursday night, but his team failed to be spurred on by the occasion.

Arsenal were lacklustre in the first-half and fell behind when Brighton’s Adam Webster struck from close range.

Alexandre Lacazette marked his 100th Gunners appearance by heading his side level in the second-half.

But with the Seagulls on the backfoot, Ljungberg’s side couldn’t capitalise. Neal Maupay headed Brighton’s winner from Aaron Mooy’s cross to leave Arsenal now 10 points off a Champions League spot.

The Gunners are on their worst run since 1977 and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 11 matches in all competitions since beating Bournemouth 1-0 on 6 October.

Gooners, it’s West Ham at the London Stadium on Monday – can we stop the rot? Let us know in the comments…
