Meanwhile, Wenger challenged Iwobi to provide 10 goals and 10 assists this season after his 56th minute goal against Brighton.

Wilshere has made only two starts this season and is yet to appear in the Premier League, but he could get game time from the bench when Albion visit the Emirates Stadium.

Following the break, Arsene Wenger's side travel to Vicarage Road to face a very good Watford side before resuming their Europa League campaign with a tough looking clash against Red Star Belgrade five days later.

Asked what he had learned in that time, he replied: 'I'd say humility'. "There are some goals in there and with the providers around I believe we can score more goals".

Wenger said: "The last time we went into an global break was a nightmare because we had just lost successive games at Stoke and Liverpool".

"Nothing is permanent. You're not bad in a permanent way".

In recording victory over Brighton, Wenger now holds wins over 45 different Premier League teams, having been tied on 44 with Ferguson, who retired over four years ago. So let's not go to quick conclusions.

Yes, we agree that they were not at their entertaining best against Brighton in a game that many expected Arsenal to win comfortably, but it is perhaps the kind of result that many Arsenal fans would love. 20 and they want to go up to 24.

Albion stay 13th in the table - with seven points from as many matches - heading in to the second global break of the season.

Wenger's side have won five of their last six matches in all competitions, but have no margin for error as they try to keep in touch with early pace-setters Manchester City and Manchester United. He added: "I don't think you are ever over satisfied and there are a couple of games we felt we could have got more from".

Chris Hughton's side lie 14th after seven games.

"Brighton are a very good team and they made it hard for us, but it's a great result to win the game and come out with a clean sheet", Iwobi told his club's website after the win.
