Worrying Arsenal defensive stat revealed after Brighton

Arsenal 1- Brighton 1

Arsenal and Brighton went head-to-head in Sunday’s late Premier League clash.

The tie had great significance to the Gunners after Chelsea beat Watford 3-0 earlier in the day.

This meant Unai Emery’s side kicked off four points behind now 4th place Tottenham.

Should Arsenal have failed to draw or beat Brighton, they would not be finishing in a Champions League place next season.

Even if they did draw though, Spurs would still have an eight better goal difference then them meaning a win was almost certainly needed.

Arsenal’s poor defensive record

Arsenal did get off to a good start as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put them 1-0 inside nine minutes from the penalty spot.

After taking the lead, however, the Gunners created very little and invited the Seagulls back into the game.

Chris Hughton’s side would then draw level in the 60th minute, also from the spot. It was also Glen Murray’s 200th senior goal.

After conceding vs Brighton, Arsenal have matched an unwanted defensive record.

They have now let in 50 league goals this campaign, meaning they have conceded 50 plus goals in back-to-back Premier League seasons for the first time since 1982-83 and 1983-84.
