  Arteta’s Willian gamble backfires as passive Arsenal’s top-six woes continue The Gunners were beaten 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday night, falling to their second defeat of the Premier League seasonThe pair were joined at the hip for three years while Arteta was Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City and each knows exactly how the other’s mind works.

The Dundalk boss praised his side's gentlemanly conduct at Arsenal as the Irish side became the first team to not concede a single foul in a Europa Italian interim boss Giovagnoli maintained that his side still fought hard during the game but chose not to use brute force to stop Arsenal from attacking them.

Too tender?

Smaller teams are often accused of playing too aggressive against the big teams. A pitfall against which Dundalk did not fall against Arsenal this Thursday in the Europa League. Beaten last week at home against Molde (1-2), the Irish failed to create the feat at the Emirates (3-0). But more astonishing: they did not commit the slightest fault during the whole meeting, as Opta emphasizes. A first in C3 since the competition changed its name in 2009.

0 - Dundalk are the first side to avoid committing a single foul in a Europa League game (2009-2010 onwards). Careful. #UEL pic.twitter.com/oCQYY9fbCB
