In this article‚ we look at Enock Mwepu's first goal‚ the offside decision against Everton and the goal that ended Brighton's winless run. We'll also take a look at Leandro Trossard's stunning late equaliser against Leicester City. The three goals in this game are worth celebrating‚ so keep reading.

Enock Mwepu's goal ends Brighton's winless streak

Having lost their last three games‚ Arsenal have now failed to win any of their last four. Enock Mwepu's cross set up a goal for Leandro Trossard to fire home. Despite conceding a penalty‚ Brighton didn't panic. The goal was their first in four matches and was the first by either side this season. During the first half‚ Gabriel Martinelli thought he had equalised but VAR ruled it out. Brighton's goal‚ which came from Enock Mwepu's mistake‚ gave the hosts a much-needed boost. Although the loss was frustrating‚ Brighton's performance was encouraging. It is a relief to end a six-match losing streak and move up to 11th in the Premier League. Enock Mwepu had an assist for the winner and he was credited with the goal. Earlier in the week‚ he spoke to the Brighton official YouTube channel‚ saying that the win will boost the team's confidence. Arsenal's defeats to Brighton and Crystal Palace are both a massive blow to the team's season. However‚ they are still in the hunt for the top four and will be hoping that Brighton can continue to build on their recent success. The match was a far cry from the Arsenal of the past. Both sides had suffered a difficult season so far‚ and a lack of quality in both teams has been detrimental. A lack of good form in the first half has led to a poor performance in the second. Luckily‚ Brighton's fans have been vocal and have chanted 'we scored' in the Emirates Stadium.

Enock Mwepu's offside against Everton

The Zambia midfielder helped end Brighton's seven-match winless run with a goal against Arsenal. Enock Mwepu got in behind Granit Xhaka and set up Leandro Trossard for a cool side-footed opener in the 63rd minute. The Zambian has now been involved in five goals in the Premier League this season. Despite the tame start‚ Brighton were much more purposeful and Mwepu beat the offside line to set up Leandro Trossard's opener. His side pushed forward and Leandro Trossard made a fine side-foot finish. In the second half‚ the Gunners thought they had pulled one back when Martinelli headed home at the post‚ but VAR had the decision overturned. Gabriel Martinelli‚ on the other hand‚ looked to have levelled the score early in the second half but his header was ruled offside by VAR. After conceding the equaliser‚ Brighton remained resilient. In the 76th minute‚ Mwepu scored again for Brighton. His powerful side-footed shot looped over goalkeeper Robert Sanchez and halved Brighton's deficit. A late goal from Martin Odegaard for the Toffees remained a question mark‚ but the draw keeps Brighton's season on track. After conceding two goals in the first half against Liverpool‚ Brighton managed to salvage a point. They outplayed Liverpool for large periods of the second half‚ a feat that was all the more remarkable given Liverpool's lack of midfield lynchpin Fabinho. Brighton reminded the Kop of Manchester City earlier in the season‚ with bold forward passes and a determination to win.

Enock Mwepu's super save from Nketiah

It's been a frustrating week for the Gunners‚ who have suffered a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday and a 3-2 loss to Brighton today. The defeats have left Arsenal with only two points and four points from six matches in the Premier League. After a disappointing week in which they lost 3-0 to Crystal Palace and 2-1 to Brighton‚ they now need to pray this is their last difficult match. The Gunners' performance was dreadful and they had to come from behind in the second half to get a point. They had lost three of their last four games and were down to ten men. After the international break‚ Tottenham are top of the table with nine points‚ while Brighton sit in eleventh place‚ just one point behind. While the goal was inevitable‚ the result could have been so different. Arsenal started slowly and did little to warm up their opponents. Then‚ the visitors' goalless run came to an end as a result of a long-range free-kick by Lewis Dunk‚ who drew an impressive save from Enock Mwepu to deny Nketiah. The lack of confidence has impacted the Arsenal team. They were missing key players in January‚ Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey. Granit Xhaka was selected to replace them but isn't a specialist left-back. This has led to Arsenal losing confidence and in turn‚ have fallen further behind. This has given Tottenham a great opportunity to gain ground in the Premier League and secure a Champions League spot.

Leandro Trossard's goal against Leicester City

Despite a lack of chances in attack‚ Albion still managed to win 1-0‚ with Belgian attacker Leandro Trossard scoring a well-taken goal in the first half. Despite missing both Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney through injury‚ the Belgian forward finished with the third highest number of shots‚ tackles‚ and interceptions. The Belgian is confident that the team can end the season on a high. Earlier in the day‚ Arsenal were in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League‚ but they have now lost three of their last four league games. The defeat to Leicester City has dropped them to joint-top spot with Tottenham‚ despite their inferior goal difference. However‚ it was Leandro Trossard's goal against Leicester City which ended Brighton's winless streak and gave the Seagulls hope. Liverpool continued their unbeaten run‚ defeating Manchester United 4-0 and beating West Ham 2-0. Arsenal's defeat by Watford was their biggest shock of the season‚ as were Liverpool's two consecutive losses against Arsenal and Huddersfield. Meanwhile‚ West Ham‚ Norwich City‚ Bournemouth‚ and Aston Villa have all lost at home to opponents in the Premier League. After a goalless run for seven games‚ the Gunners have taken a huge step towards their title hopes. Brighton have not won in six Premier League games‚ but their winless streak ends with the win. After a stalemate against Liverpool‚ Arsenal have finally won their fourth consecutive Premier League game. Nevertheless‚ their season is far from over.

Tottenham's win against Arsenal

After a two-match losing streak‚ Tottenham managed to end the Brighton winless run with a 2-1 victory. After Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Brighton‚ they are now only three points behind in the table‚ and the victory will put them within touching distance of the top four. While they must now play West Ham on Monday‚ Brighton's winless run is over. The game will be broadcast on fuboTV and can be watched live on FuboTV. After a goalless first half‚ Tottenham started to exert some pressure and started to dominate possession. After the break‚ Arsenal committed men forwards‚ but Brighton held firm and were able to thwart a late onslaught. As the game entered the second half‚ the Gunners were still looking dangerous‚ though. Cedric Soares fired a rebound into the wall from close range‚ and Alli then chipped a corner into the box‚ where Alli was waiting to tap in from close range. After a difficult start‚ the Spurs manager was forced to introduce VAR‚ which ruled out a goal by Martinelli. Despite the aforementioned criticisms‚ Tottenham managed to win their sixth successive league game. The win moved Tottenham up a place and levelled with West Ham United‚ who play on Sunday. They are now level on points with both sides. This means that they are just one point behind their rivals. After a tough start to the season‚ Tottenham Hotspur's form climbed further. In the last two games‚ they have outscored opponents by a combined score of seven and one. Their win over Crystal Palace ended the Brighton winless streak and lifted their confidence. They will now face lowly Norwich in the next round. A win would lift their spirits and send them seven points clear of the Premier League's bottom three.
