BREAKING: Gunners In Shambles As Brighton Destroys #Arsenal‘s Title Hopes At Emirates Stadium—Arsenal’s title hopes suffered another huge blow with a 3-0 defeat at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

A few hours after Manchester City had beaten Everton 3-0, The Gunners’ defeat means they end the weekend four points behind Pep Guardiola’s side having played a game more.

The home side were second best throughout and they lost Gabriel Martinelli early on to injury after a nasty challenge from Moses Caicedo, and his replacement Leandro Trossard hit the woodwork against his former club.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side created more chances and had more possession, with Julio Enciso spurning two good opportunities while the in-form Evan Ferguson shot wide from close range.

The Seagulls broke the deadlock at the start of the second half when Pervis Estupinan’s cross into the ground was headed in by an unmarked Enciso.

Mikel Arteta, who was booked for complaining about a decision, brought on Thomas Partey and Reiss Nelson but it made little difference as their finishing let them down.

And it was a Brighton substitute who sealed victory, with Deniz Undav pouncing on a mistake from Trossard to lob the ball over Aaron Ramsdale.

Estupinan rubbed salt into Arsenal wounds with a third in injury time.

The result means Man City will clinch the Premier League title if they beat struggling Chelsea next Sunday.
