Maupay scores winner as Brighton get 1st away over Arsenal


Neal Maupay scored winner as Brighton & Hove Albion get first away win over Arsenal in the 2-1 victory at Emirate Stadium on Thursday night Premier League encounter.Brighton’s first-half pressure paid off in the 36th minute when centre back Webster pounced on the ball as it came loose after a corner, poking home past Bernd Leno to give the visitors the lead.Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette equalised five minutes into the second half with a high looping header from a Mesut Ozil corner which bounced in off the far post.The home side briefly thought they had taken the lead when David Luiz shanked the ball home from a free kick, only for the Brazilian to be found clearly offside by VAR.Instead, Brighton’s Maupay headed a cross from Aaron Mooy into the far corner past Leno in the 80th minute to give manager Graham Potter’s side a historic win in north London.Arsenal now sit 10th in the table on 19 points, with Brighton a single point behind and three places below them in 13th.
