Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on the Super League, Kroenke protests and Lacazette

Mikel Arteta is set to face the press ahead of Arsenal vs Everton in the Premier League on Friday at the Emirates Stadium.

It’s been an eventful few days for the Gunners who signed up for the controversial European Super League before having to perform a spectacular U-turn on the decision just 48 hours later.

An apology from the club’s board has been released but that is unlikely to be enough to satisfy fans who are planning a protest before Friday’s match to demand that Stan Kroenke and KSE leave.

Away from matters on the pitch Arteta also has to contend with the fact that he is missing his two senior strikers for the clash with the Toffees after both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were ruled out of the game due to illness and injury respectively.

This could provide a chance for Folarin Balogun – who is set to sign a contract extension with the Gunners imminently – to make his Premier League debut, while Martin Odegaard may also be available for the match after missing three weeks with an ankle injury.
