Murray scores 200th career league goal to deny Arsenal victory
Goal from Aubameyang could have been the difference at the Emirate Stadium in London on Sunday evening but Glenn Murray stepped up to make sure his side, Brighton shared a 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
Jahanbakhsh and Monreal went for Aubameyang’s pass into the box and the winger catches the Arsenal left-back, who went down immediately and the referee pauses for a moment and then points to the spot.
Aubameyang stepped up and fired into the bottom-left corner with Ryan diving the wrong way.
His 20th Premier League goal for Arsenal this season – he becomes the sixth different player to net 20 times in a single campaign for the Gunners.
14 minutes into second half, Arsenal swarm forward in numbers but Mkhitaryan played a poor pass and Brighton break quickly through March.
He beats Granit Xhaka for pace and the midfielder leaves a trailing arm out to send the winger to the floor and concede a penalty.
Murray stepped up, sticks the ball into the bottom-right corner of the net to record his 200th career league goal.
The Gunners failed to score again as they remain in 5th position with 67 points and three point behind their bitter rivals, Tottenham.
