ARSE-nil

Arsenal were so bad they made history
By ANTONY KASTRINAKIS

ARSENAL have become the first Champions League side to have NO shots at goal during a game.
That damning fact has emerged for Arsene Wenger's side following their 3-1 defeat at Barcelona on Tuesday.


Stats gurus Opta have kept detailed records for eight years and the Gunners have recorded a miserable new low.

An Opta spokesman said: "There have been 981 Champions League games since 2003-04 and Arsenal are the first of 1,962 sides not to manage a shot of any form in a match since then."
