Everton manager David Moyes was disappointed with his side's performance in the 2-1 loss to Arsenal.
Goals either side of half-time from Bacary Sagna and Cesc Fabregas meant that Tim Cahill`s late strike was nothing more than a consolation and the Toffees were left to reflect on a first Premier League defeat in eight games.
"I can't really feel as if we deserved an awful lot. I don't think we played all that well," Moyes said. "I didn't think there was much in the game before the first goal. I didn't think Arsenal were great and I don't think we were.
"Losing a goal just before half-time was crucial to them and the one just after half-time made it really difficult.
"We tried to keep going, we'd wanted to do that from the first minute but I never felt we got into the tempo or speed of the game.
"There were things which on another day may have gone in Everton's favour but didn't. I thought we created one or two chances which on another day we might have scored. If we'd got the goal a bit earlier then who knows?"
