Mind the gap: Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta loses a front tooth after painful clash with Hull's George Boyd
Spaniard faced a trip to the dentist after the 3-0 win at the KC Stadium
Arsenal's midfield have been often described as toothless this season, so here is a picture of Mikel Arteta actually toothless.
It was during the Gunners 3-0 victory at Hull City on Sunday that the Spanish midfielder came off worst after a painful clash with Hull's George Boyd.
The 32-year-old was caught by a swinging arm and fell to the ground, holding his mouth. Then it emerged that he had lost a front tooth. That didn't stop him completing the game though.
The teams meet again in the FA Cup final on 17 May, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger dismissed any thoughts of the high-profile rematch, and focused instead on retaining his side's slender advantage over Everton in the race for fourth place.
He said: "What is important is that we finish as strongly as we can in the Premier League. After that, the cup final will be completely different.
"We knew we had to win today, we had that kind of pressure.
"I think after the Wigan game, you could already see (in Tuesday's 3-1 win) against West Ham there was something better in our game and today there was much more oil in the engine again."
