Arsenal succumbed to their first loss under new manager Freddie Ljungberg as they were outplayed by Brighton Hove Albion on home turf by a 1-2 scoreline. In doing so, Arsenal have now gone 7 games without a win in the Premier League. An interesting stat has popped up regarding Arsenal's record winless run which involves summer signing David Luiz.
Have to keep reminding myself. Chelsea lost their best player last summer, transfer ban, injuries, sold David Luiz, had to play our academy players. Lost 1st game 4-0 to Man Utd. Yet here we are in 4th place. 8 points clear of Man Utd, 9 clear of Spurs, 10 clear of Arsenal. #CFC pic.twitter.com/aVNqRWkhTc— Frank Khalid (@FrankKhalidUK) December 6, 2019
