Arsenal boss Arteta forced to drag Zinchenko off pitch after Everton defeat

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta had to drag Oleks Zinchenko off the pitch at Everto after their 1-0 defeat.

The Ukrainian had been involved in an altercation with Neal Maupay towards the end of the game, and it has been suggested that the arguments continued after the full-time whistle.

Arsenal tempers were high after they slipped to defeat against Everton after James Tarkowski's 60th-minute header.

But Zinchenko was not letting go despite the game ending, as it has been claimed he continued to argue with the Toffees players after full-time, according to The Telegraph reporter Sam Dean.

He also claimed that the left-back was carrying on his heated state and needed Arteta to remove him from the pitch.

He tweeted: "Arteta dragging Zinchenko off the pitch after the final whistle.

"The Arsenal left-back had a few things he wanted to say to some Everton players."
