Wenger: Lacazette and Sanchez can be Arsenal's dynamic duo

Arsenal maintained their ideal home record by comfortably beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0, while Everton's poor start to the season continued as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Burnley. He got just 19 minutes of action, replacing Alex Iwobi with the job done at The Emirates.

Monreal turned home the 17th-minute opener following a scramble in the Albion box, before Iwobi finished off a flowing Arsenal move early in the second period.

It was a third win in the space of six days for Arsenal, who saw off West Brom on Monday and then Belarussian side BATE Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday.

Visiting goalkeeper Mat Ryan made two smart stops to deny Lacazette, after he pounced on Dunk's poor control, and Aaron Ramsey, following an end-to-end counter-attack, as Arsenal hunted a second goal before half-time.

Since having taken over in North London in 1996, French tactician Wenger has gone on to cement himself as the greatest manager in the history of Arsenal, racking up three Premier League titles, 7 FA Cup crowns and 7 Community Shields.

"I didn't think Alexis would find me from that position but it just shows the skill he has", Iwobi said. "To have eyes in the back of his head and back- heel to me was fantastic".

"We kept the clean sheet and of course got three points". Wenger admitted he would be sleeping better during the forthcoming worldwide fixtures than he did during the last lot, which came straight after the Anfield horror show.

Iwobi said: "I wouldn't say it was comfortable but we made it as easy as we could have done".

"I would have loved to be able to continue to play, but we can not do anything about that", Wenger said after his side's 2-0 league win over Brighton & Hove Albion. What you want from him is final balls and goals as well.

Nobody can claim to have bettered that record, with even Manchester United's iconic former boss now slipping into the shadow of a man he used to enjoy regular touchline battles with.

"But we played under special circumstances".
