Arsene Wenger delighted with Arsenal's 'united' response to Anfield mauling

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has today opened up on what he feels should be valued above "winning" and 'buying'.

The visitors nearly levelled midway through the first-half when Solly March struck a thunderous effort against the far post from the edge of the area.

The game encapsulated Liverpool's season as it took the lead through a superb Philippe Coutinho strike from 25 meters on 29 minutes, only to concede seven minutes later after shambolic defending allowed Joselu to latch on to Jonjo Shelvey's pass through the middle.

Arsenal's £46.5m record signing Alexandre Lacazette had scored four goals in his first five Premier League starts and he nearly continued that streak just 60 seconds in when he hit the post from the edge of the penalty box.

Brighton's hopes for the season stretch little further than survival, a task that will only be made harder by the lack of a striker.

During the game, Solly March hit the Arsenal woodwork and Brighton enjoyed a good spell in the final stages of the encounter as they sought a response against their opponents. Arsenal lies below Chelsea, who have the same points tally but only sits atop on goal difference.

The last time the Gunners lost a home game in October was back in 2002 - a 2-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

While Mesut Ozil was ruled out though injury, Alexis Sanchez started in attack for the Gunners, and the Chilean was superb throughout.

"When you come here, you know it's going to be a hard afternoon, you know it is", Hughton said.

Both Arsenal and Brighton were in a good run of form heading into the game, however Arsene Wenger's side were clear favourites and their superior class and quality showed.

"I would say that we kept a clean sheet, we got the points", he said.

"After the game at Liverpool, everybody wrote us off. We could have done more, but okay".

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Arsène Wenger or Chris Hughton? Now we've got the first two wins out of the way we can keep on building.
