Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta has hailed former club Everton as the best team the Gunners have met in the Premier League this season.

And Arteta, who spent six-and-a-half years at Goodison Park before moving to Arsenal in 2011, was full of praise for his ex-club.

"Everton are the best side we have faced this season in the Premier League," said the Spaniard. "It was a really tough game, a really high tempo game. They dominated the first 35 minutes or so but after that we had three clear chances.

"They have been getting results because they are doing things right," explained Arteta. "They have a good mix of players and are hard to deal with."
