Arsenal youngster Willock vows to keep fighting after solid Dundalk display

Joe Willock says he'll keep fighting for minutes in Arsenal's starting line-up.

The Gunners academy graduate was excellent against Dundalk in the Europa League on Thursday, scoring in the 3-0 victory.

"Happy to get a win. I thought we played well. Every team is a struggle in Europe, we had to stick to our plan and I felt we did that.

"I am grateful to play for this team, to start from the beginning makes me happy and a proud moment for my family. Happy for the team and happy to score as well.

"He [Mikel Arteta] just told me to keep working hard. I told him I want to fight for my position and hopefully I will get an opportunity again."
