Monreal and Iwobi continue Arsenal's home run

1125: Hello again and welcome to our Super Sunday blog, which will focus on three Premier League games and one rather important one in the Sky Bet Championship.

The goal would have been extra sweet for De Bruyne, who was sold by Chelsea in January 2014 after 18 months at Stamford Bridge.

He drove it high past Ryan to double Arsenal's lead in the 56th minute. In the 25th minute it was their turn to hit the woodwork. We lost 4-0 and the team was really poor.

Arsenal were playing intricate football and opened the scoring on 17 minutes through Nacho Monreal. They have to come out. Solly March rattled a post and Davy Propper drifted a shot just wide of Petr Cech's left-hand post. Rob Holding and Alex Iwobi will start since the first minute. "I was told by the press".

Arsenal's opener was Monreal's first Premier League goal in more than four-and-a-half years.

Philippe Coutinho fired the visitors ahead with a superb 29th-minute strike, but poor defending and a lucky ricochet allowed Joselu to equalise seven minutes later. France forward Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey were both involved before Alexis Sanchez's splendid back-heel allowed midfielder Iwobi to power home past Ryan. Finally I want to highlight that Arsenal at home along with Manchester United has a 100% figure, winning all 3 matches with a total score of 9: 3. Alex reminds me of a mixture of him and Edgar Davids.

Having previously been peripheral, Sanchez began to cut in more often from his left-wing station, demanding the ball from colleagues, while there were signs that he and Lacazette are developing an understanding.

Arsenal would eventually emerge victorious by a 2-0 scoreline, which lifted them into 5th position.

It was also Monreal's first Premier League goal at the Emirates and will no doubt he a day he will never forget.

After one of the most long-running transfer sagas this summer, Arsenal fans breathed a huge sigh of relief as when the transfer window closed Sanchez was still a Gunner.

After Arsenal went ahead, Brighton offered some resistance and nearly equalised when winger Solly March rattled the right post following a well-worked free-kick routine.

With the result all but settled, the game became a means for Sanchez get the goal his efforts deserved.
