Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League.

The Gunners took a first half lead through a lovely goal from Nicolas Pepe in a fiery encounter against an Eagles side who could easily have had a few players sent off.

In the second half though the performances really deteriorated and Palace deservedly equalised through Christian Benteke.

It looked as though the game was heading for a draw before Gabriel Martienlli popped up at the back post to tap in a goal right on the stroke of injury time.

A brilliant individual effort from Pepe then made the game safe to ensure that Arsenal’s unlikely Europa League hopes were kept alive till the final day of the season.
