The day Arsenal's title dreams died

The day Arsenal's title dreams died
Mikel Arteta's side were torn apart at the Emirates Stadium as their dreams of a first league title since 2004 were ended by the impressive Seagulls.

Arsenal’s players all slumped to the turf at the final whistle as their Premier League title dreams were ended by a humbling 3-0 defeat by Brighton at the Emirates Stadium. Mikel Arteta’s side went into the game knowing there was no room for error following Manchester City’s victory at Everton earlier in the day, but they couldn’t raise themselves for one final push as their title hopes fizzled out once and for all.

Brighton were excellent and fully deserved their win, with second half goals from Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav and Pervis Estupinan proving the difference. Arsenal had some chances in the first half, with Leandro Trossard clipping the bar and Bukayo Saka going close, but once they fell behind they never looked like coming back.

Mikel Arteta's side know that if they now lose at Nottingham Forest next Saturday that the title will officially be City’s. And even if they do avoid defeat, then a win for City over Chelsea 24 hours later will do it.

Arsenal led the race for so long, but their hopes are now over, extinguished by a relentless run of wins from Pep Guardiola’s champions.
