Arsenal

Every word Mikel Arteta said on Partey’s injury, Tierney’s absence, Tavares sub and Spurs

The Gunners boss has spoken to the press after his side's 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League

That was a pretty poor night all round wasn’t it

Yes especially in the first half. Congratulations first of all to Crystal Palace for winning the match and the way they performed, but we weren’t at the races today especially in the first half. We were late to every ball, we were soft in the duels and we didn’t earn the right to play. When we did a little bit we were sloppy on the ball and we didn’t have any dominance, any sequences of play where we could take some control of the game and we conceded two poor goals. Overall it’s unacceptable, we put our hands up, apologise, regroup. Tomorrow is a new day and a new opportunity to prepare the group against Brighton.

Did you see that coming today?
