Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on Lacazette’s injury, VAR and Fulham

Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Fulham in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium

The Gunners looked flat for much of the match but could have found themselves in front after having two goals ruled out in the first half for offside.

They were made to pay for those marginal decisions when the Cottagers were given a penalty midway through the second period despite what appeared to be minimal contact from Gabriel on Mario Lemina which Josh Maja was able to put away.

Arsenal then spent the rest of the match trying to break down Fulham’s resolute defence with Nicolas Pepe forcing a tremendous save from Alphonse Areola.

It looked as though they were going to be thwarted until Eddie Nketiah who had come on for the injured Alexandre Lacazette tapped in at the far post in the last minute of the game.
