Arsenal loses to Everton 2-1 for seventh game without a win

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Mikel Arteta's woes deepened when Arsenal was beaten by Everton 2-1 to go seven games without a win in the English Premier League as he marked a year in charge of the London club on Saturday.

While Arsenal dropped to 15th, Everton - which Arteta played for like Arsenal - is up to second after a third win in eight days.

Everton scored from only one shot on target as Rob Holding's own goal opener was followed - after Nicolas Pepe's equalizing penalty - by Yerry Mina's header on the stroke of halftime.

Arsenal was not helped by the absence of top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a tight calf but the visitors conceded possession from the off and lacked any intensity or desire to break up their opponents' play.
