Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “Very disappointing. The way we started was superb again, we were in total control, then we lost purpose.

“We gave them hope, conceded a terrible penalty, then credit to them. We got on the roller coaster where everything is going, corners and throw ins, and we never got away from that.

“The purpose we needed for third and fourth goal, I didn’t see it.”
