Mikel Arteta felt Arsenal let two crucial points slip away after the Gunners were held to a goalless draw by Everton.

Olivier Giroud was guilty of wasting a number of chances for the north Londoners as their four-game winning streak was brought to an end by the battling Merseysiders.

The point keeps Arsenal in third place in the Premier League table with five games left to play, although Arsene Wenger’s men will be overtaken by both Chelsea and Tottenham if their two London rivals win their games in hand.

And ex-Everton midfielder Arteta admitted his frustration at only managing a point against his former employers.

“It was two points that got away,” he said. “It was a big battle and we had the better chances and better play. We were unlucky not to score.

“There is a lot to play for, if Everton won they were right in the mix. They are physically very strong.

“When we had our chances we didn’t hit the target and that’s why we didn’t get the points.

“The pressure is on every team, Chelsea and Spurs have got tough games coming up.”

Arteta added: “David Moyes is doing an unbelievable job at Everton. He has a chance of Europe and he deserves a lot of credit.”

Arsenal travel to Fulham on Saturday for their next Premier League game.
