Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta gave a blunt response when questioned over Nicolas Pepe's lack of game time as he shut down questions over his decision to play Eddie Nketiah against Everton ahead of the club-record signing. 

The Gunners suffered their third consecutive away defeat on Monday night after they threw away a first-half lead at Goodison Park.

Martin Odegaard opened the scoring before the break but Richarlison's second-half header levelled for the Toffees before Demarai Gray's 92nd-minute winner snatched all three points for the under-fire home side.
