In the 74th minute of this afternoon’s clash between Brighton and Arsenal, the Seagulls equalised after taking advantage of the Gunners’ inability to deal with a corner.
Club-record signing Nicolas Pepe gave the Gunners the lead in spectacular fashion, but Lewis Dunk had his side back on level terms in just eight minutes.
Solly March played a one-two after a short corner and drilled a low cross into the near post, Neal Maupay’s attempted flick was blocked on the line but Dunk reacted quicker than Rob Holding to poke the ball into the back of the net.
Holding used his chest to block Maupay’s effort but a quick-thinking Dunk got to the mid-air ball first and got Graham Potter’s side back level.
Take a look at the centre-back’s equaliser below:

With Manchester United and Tottenham drawing last night, Arsenal had a real chance this afternoon to build some momentum to inspire a shock Champions League finish, this went out of the window with their handling of this corner.
