Arsenal v Brighton: What was said?

Mikel Arteta has blasted Arsenal’s “unacceptable” performance in their resounding Premier League defeat at Crystal Palace.

He told Sky Sports after the game: “First of all, congratulations to Crystal Palace on the game they played.

“I think we made it impossible for ourselves, the way we competed. We talked about it before the game – you have to compete on this court, you have to be physical, you have to win the first and second balls, win the challenges and then you win the right to play.

“We kind of deserved it but we were really poor, we were really inconsistent on the ball, giving the ball away time and time again.

“At this level it’s unacceptable so today we have to accept that we were far from our level, especially in the first half and I apologize to our supporters…”
