Arsenal were the first side in English Football League history to achieve this milestone.
Arteta stated before to the game that he was focusing on strengthening the defensive element of the team’s game, particularly in set plays and in the box, after allowing two goals in the previous two games.
He commended the club for their ability to come from behind, something they have done more than any other Premier League team this season.
“We’re giving up some set plays, and we’re giving up a lot in games,” he said. “We gave up two goals against Bournemouth and Sporting.
“You need clean sheets if you want to be at the top, winning and winning and winning.
“We’ve been pretty excellent at stopping opportunities in the previous two weeks, but not good enough in the box.”
Arsenal won the game 3-0 courtesy to goals in the first half from Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli, and Martin Odegaard, and Fulham may consider themselves fortunate to be only three down at the interval.
