The home side had the best of the chances, but Lewis Dunk, Neal Maupay, and Dan Burn all missed their openings. Emile Smith Rowe also had a late effort for the Gunners but was saved by Robert Sanchez. However, it was a game where both teams lacked a cutting edge in the final third.
The Premier League takes a two-week break for the international matches. Brighton is next in action away to Norwich on October 16, while Arsenal host Crystal Palace on October 18.
However, according to reports, Arsenal is considering a move for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the summer of 2022.
Dominic Nathaniel Calvert-Lewin is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Everton and the England national team. Calvert-Lewin began his career at local team Sheffield United, making his senior debut on loan at Conference North team Stalybridge Celtic in December 2014.
The Gunners are likely to wave goodbye to Alexandre Lacazette on a free transfer when his deal expires at the end of the campaign, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is out of contract in 2023, which should see Mikel Arteta start planning for the future soon.
Meanwhile, If Lacazette and Aubameyang both end their Gunners stints shortly, Calvert-Lewin would undoubtedly slot straight into the first XI if the Gunners manage to prise him out of Everton's grasp, with Arteta seeking a target man equally adept at bringing others into the game.
Arsenal possible starting lineup with Calvert-Lewin:
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Calvert-Lewin
