Defensive prowess on show yet again

Arsenal has conceded just one goal in its last five league games, which includes away at the Etihad.

Having the league's best defensive record (only 24 conceded in 31 games), Arteta's side now has a defensive steel to it to complement its unrelenting attacking power.

In years gone by, the Gunners would have conceded a goal against Brighton, but with William Saliba and Gabriel the two rocks in the heart of defense, Arsenal ran a tight ship and got its third consecutive clean sheet in the league.

Oh how the tables have turned from the days where the Arsenal defense was a glaring weakness.
