Another poor officiating from the Video Assistant Referee and the the VAR after refusing to cancel Benteke's goal in the second half of the game despite having a clear view of the foul on Sambi Lokonga before the goal was scored. It was an entertaining match between the two teams but a late goal by France striker Lacazzete gave Arsenal the equalizing goal in the last minute of the game.
No doubt that the goalless draw is not the result both Arsenal FC coach, Mikel Arteta and the players want as the club could not do enough to secure the three (3) points of the game. Brighton was the better side in both halves but wasted several chances the club has which could have resulted in defeating the Gunners.
Sambi Lokonga, an Arsenal midfielder, has intimated that he is now being used out of position on the pitch. A club media interview with the Belgian international midfielder revealed that he wants to play as a central midfielder rather than a defensive midfielder on the pitch. Lokonga joined the club from Belgian side Standard Liege in the summer for an undisclosed cost, but it is believed to be in the region of 25 million euros.
