Arsene Wenger explains Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin absences for Arsenal

Hughton feels Wenger has the experience to handle his current situation

At the Amex Stadium on Sunday, no player gave away the ball more often than Mkhitaryan and his dwindling influence on Arsenal's play was epitomised by Wenger's decision to withdraw him with seven minutes left, to be replaced by a fullback.

Lewis Dunk opened the scoring for the Seagulls in the 7th minute, slamming a volley into the roof past a helpless Petr Cech as he grabbed his first Premier League goal.

Last season was the first time Arsenal have failed to finish in the top four under Wenger, but Sunday's loss leaves them in sixth place, 13 points behind Tottenham in fourth. A loss against Brighton could be catastrophic for Arsenal, as they run the risk of sliding even further down the league table. Glenn Murray doubled the lead with his 11th but Aubameyang pulled one back two minutes before the interval.

The Czech international's indecision at Bournemouth contributed to a comeback win from Eddie Howe's side in January; 12 days later he gifted Swansea's Jordan Ayew a crucial goal at the Liberty Stadium and this time, after Arsenal had begun with relative promise, his mistimed jump against Duffy handed Brighton the lead from their first attack.

Arsene Wenger made three changes from Thursday's defeat to Man City with Aaron Ramsey rested and Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck benched. Brighton were completely on top during that first half but Arsenal were showing signs of getting back into the game.

But ICE spokesman James Schwab said "this does not happen", referring to randomly asking individuals for documentation. Officers were able to effectively arrest 150 immigrants who remained undocumented according to CBS San Francisco .

Instead, Arsenal betrayed the defensive frailties that have been a feature of their campaign and allowed Brighton to take control.

"We want Wenger out" was soon being chanted by the visiting fans, who had never seen their team 2-0 down to Brighton in a league game.

Arsenal had seven minutes of stoppage time to get some points out of the match, and Aubameyang almost did it in the 93rd minute, but his shot went straight at Ryan. Hit the post on the strike of half-time but looked a mess in defence with his wayward passing gifting Brighton possession for the second goal.

It is painful to admit this of someone who has been such a shining light in the Premier League but the time to say farewell appears close.

The second half started evenly, with Mesut Ozil stinging the palms of Mathew Ryan with a drilled effort before a flashpoint on 65 minutes as Sead Kolasinac, already booked, ploughed into Ezequiel Schelotto.
