Watch Full Highlight: Everton 2-1 Arsenal



Mikel Arteta’s woes deepened when his side suffered defeated to Everton 2-1 to go seven games without a win in the English Premier League as he marked a year in charge of the London club on Saturday.

The host scored from only one shot on target as defender Rob Holding’s own goal opened was followed – after Nicolas Pepe’s equalising penalty – by Yerry Mina’s header on the stroke of half-time.

Mikel Arteta’s men was not helped by the absence of captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a tight calf but the visitors conceded possession from the off and lacked any intensity or desire to break up their opponents’ play.

Arteta, meanwhile, admitted their current run of results are unacceptable and do not meet the high standards the club has set but maintains they have been unlucky during a seven-match winless run.

‘I understand (the scrutiny) but my energy and focus is only on getting the team out of the situation,” he said.

‘The spirit and fight the boys show every time they go on the pitch you can see, you cannot deny that.

‘Against the results there is no question it is not good enough and not acceptable for the standards of this football club.

‘Obviously it is a really complicated situation but I am very encouraged from what I see from the players who to try to continue what they are doing.

‘We have to improve but as well I think we have been very unlucky not to pick up many more points.

‘We have done well in the Europa League and in the cups but struggled to get results in the Premier League.

‘The reason we are losing matches is because the margins are so small but we need (to change) those margins quickly before the situation becomes impossible.’
