Arsenal defeat at Brighton unacceptable, says Mikel Arteta. Mikel Arteta was left furious with his Arsenal players after Neal Maupay struck an injury-time winner in the Premier League on Saturday.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta slammed the Gunners for an “unacceptable” 2-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday.

The visitors went ahead at Amex Stadium through a sublime Nicolas Pépé strike but were stunned by goals from Lewis Dunk and Neal Maupay.

Dunk scrambled the ball over the line after a quick Brighton corner before a 95th-minute winner from Maupay, who was involved in an earlier collision that saw Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno taken off on a stretcher.

It was Arsenal’s second defeat in a week following their 3-0 loss to Manchester City on Wednesday. Arteta was far from happy with the way they failed to hold onto their earlier advantage.

“I am very frustrated,” he told BBC Sport. “It is unacceptable the way we lost the game. We like competing and I know we have a young squad. But still, we threw the game away. We had to put it to bed earlier.”

“I think the players that came on today did really well. We did more than enough to win the game comfortably, but we leave with zero points again.”
