BRIGHTON, England (AP) - Arsenal completed a terrible week by losing 2-1 at Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday to slip 13 points off the Champions League qualification positions and pile more pressure on manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal are now 30 points behind Pep Guardiola's side and even if they won each of the remaining games and City lose theirs - there are only 27 points up for grabs.

Arsenal have lost four successive matches in all competitions and are sitting 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham in the league table.

Wenger told the BBC: "We were passive, struggling for confidence and heavy legged but responded well in the second-half". We need two teams to collapse, not one.

This opinion piece argues that Arsene Wenger is still the most suitable choice for the Arsenal.

ARSENAL'S hopes of lifting the Premier League trophy this season have officially been quashed after a 2-1 defeat to Brighton. "It's simply not possible. The team fought back but the damage was done".

The Gunners went into the contest on the back of damaging defeats to Manchester City in both the Carabao Cup final and the Premier League, as well as losing the home leg of their Europa League tie with Ostersund.

But after seven minutes Brighton were ahead.

Arsenal, in the manner true to a team chasing a result, had all of the ball in the closing stages with Aubameyang coming the closest to salvaging a point for his side, but they could not find the equaliser they craved.

"You can discuss that statement because it's not completely true", Wenger added. Laurent Koscielny's loose pass from the back was recycled to Gross and his inch-perfect delivery was thudded home by Murray, whose downward header skidded under Cech.

Brighton did double their lead on 26 minutes as the Gunners gave possession away, which allowed Stephen Gross to cross for Murray, who sent a towering header past Cech. After Duffy had failed to clear, Alex Iwobi pulled the ball back to Granit Xhaka and his pass was smartly deflected beyond Mathew Ryan by the outside of Aubameyang's right foot.

Ramsey has also been left out of the entire squad, with Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spearheading the attack.
