Yet another witless performance from Arsenal, as went two down after 28 minutes when Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray struck simple goals, only heaps further pressure on Arsene Wenger, whose exit was demanded by a vocal group of visiting fans.
Indeed it seems hard to imagine how Arsenal can turn their season around when they were unable to overhaul even this deficit, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang striking moments before half-time.
Inevitably the rebellion began in the away end. Within a minute of Brighton’s second the first ‘Wenger Out’ banner was raised. Soon after a vocal section of the travelling supporters chanted: “We Want Wenger Out”.
The boos didn’t come at the half-time whistle as Aubameyang gave the visitors hope, the Gabon striker flicking Granit Xhaka’s shot into the net with three minutes left. Koscielny nearly earned them an undeserved equaliser when his header crashed back off the crossbar.
Whatever methods Wenger employed at half-time had no obvious impact early in the second period as Arsenal continued to labour in possession and leave the door open for Brighton to counter.
