Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on Nicolas Pepe, Gabriel Martinelli and Slavia Prague


Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague.

The Gunners were looking to bounce back from their disappointing 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

Nicolas Pepe scored what looked like the winner five minutes from time with a deft finish to give Arteta’s side a crucial lead going into next week’s second leg in Prague.

However, Slavia equalised in stoppage time through Tomas Holes who capitalised on a defensive lapse of concentration from Gabriel.

Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette had both missed huge opportunities earlier in the game.

Arteta will give his reaction to the disappointing result and is expected to provide an update on the fitness of Martin Odegaard, who missed tonight’s match with an ankle injury.
