Everton boss Moyes allays Arteta setback fears

Everton boss David Moyes says there's no serious concerns over Mikel Arteta.

Arteta was omitted from the squad for the 0-0 draw at Wolves as a precautionary measure because of a niggling groin problem.

Moyes told evertonfc.com: "He's been carrying a bit of a groin strain for the last few weeks now and we felt we couldn't play him today.

"We missed him, but it would have been a very difficult game for him as well. The pitch was not the best and they got the ball forward quickly."
