Thanks for reading this live commentary, I've been Adam Stenning and until next time thank you.
Overall it was a game Brighton could have got three points from, but so could Arsenal with the chances they both had at 1-1. The big two for either side falling to Gross and Aubameyang.
It could have gone either way that game at the end with chances at both ends.

And we are underway at The Emirates Stadium.
Teams are coming out of the tunnel.
Just over ten minutes till kick-off.
Not long 20 minutes till kick-off.
A win for Brighton could see them move level points with Southampton and if they win by two goals see them move above Southampton and into 16th place.
A win for Arsenal could move them a point behind Tottenham in fourth.
Only 30 minutes till kick-off, Arsenal will be boosted by the fact Manchester United slipped up at Huddersfield, but they will also see Chelsea have moved into third after a 3-0 win over Watford today.
One player who will be looking to impress for Brighton, is Jahanbakhsh. The Iranian winger has not had the greatest opening season in the Premier League after signing for a club record fee of around £16 million.
Arsenal will also have one eye on Thursday and their Europa League semi-final, second leg away to Valencia so it might not be a bad option for Brighton to put some feisty tackles in worry some Arsenal players.
The good thing is pressure is all on Arsenal who are still fighting for a top four place, where Brighton can not go any lower so they will be hoping this works in their favour.
It will be interesting to see how Brighton approach the game today after Cardiff's relegation was confirmed last night, have a funny feeling they will keep tight and soak up pressure.
Arsenal will lineup as follows: Leno, Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Torreira, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang and Lacazette.
The full Brighton lineup looks like this: Ryan, Bruno(C), Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo, Bissouma, Stephens, Gross, March, Murray and Jahanbakhsh.
Hello everyone, team news is in and let's start with Brighton who make three changes with Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Yves Bissouma and Solly March coming for Florin Andone, Jose Izquierdo and Beram Kayal.
One thing that will be interesting to see is how Arsenal approach the game, as they will have one eye on their Europa League Semi-Final, second leg away to Valencia next Thursday.
Pascal Gross is recently back from injury but his header broke Albion's goalless run with his equaliser against Newcastle last week.
Murray is Brighton's top scorer with 13 goals in all competitions and scored against Arsenal last season in the win over them at The Amex.
Brighton's danger men will be Glenn Murray and Pascal Gross. 
The man who could hold the key for Arsenal is their front two Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored all three of their goals in their Europa League Semi-Final, first-leg  against Valencia on Thursday.
Brighton will be without Jose Izquierdo for the rest of the season, with a knee injury and will also be without Davy Propper again due to a hamstring injury.
The Gunners will be without long-term injury absentees Rob Holding, Hector Bellerín, Aaron Ramsey, Denis Suarez and Danny Welbeck.

However, Laurent Koscielny is expected to be fit despite being substituted against Valencia because of fatigue.

However, a point for Cardiff and Brighton lose tomorrow, then it means Cardiff would either need a mammoth win away to Manchester United on the final day, or Brighton to lose massively to Manchester City on the final day of the season.
Brighton could be safe before they have even kicked a ball if Cardiff lose at home to Crystal Palace.
The Gunners are still chasing a top four place to guarantee Champions League football for next season.
Arsenal take on Brighton in what could be a big game for both sides.
