The bottomless pit that is Arsenal's regression once again took centre stage today as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Brighton and Hove Albion. Before the continued outcry of anger from the Arsenal faithful and bewilderment from the wider football community, it should be noted Brighton were full value for their victory as they continue a remarkable season under the excellent Chris Hughton.
As for Arsenal, it is becoming increasingly clear Arsene Wenger's days are numbered after a remarkable report last week suggesting the player's themselves can no longer work with the Frenchman.
It is those very players who took the brunt of today's frustration, with many questioning their performance today.
Arsenal players I would sell tomorrow:

The most damning thing about this Arsenal side is that they make you miss Walcott and Giroud.

In most situations when a team is struggling, the manager looks to field players with the good character rather than good ability. Not sure Arsenal would get to a starting XI on that criteria

They swore they’d beat every team because of Aubameyang + Mkhi + Ozil

Man-of-the-match Glenn Murray and Lewis Dunk ensured Brighton's win, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring Arsenal's sole goal. The result leaves them 13 points off the top four.
It means the situation is increasingly bleak for Wenger, with Arsenal losing four games in a row in all competitions for the first time since October 2002.
