ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger urged his team to turn their season around after failing to grab three points for the second time in five days last night.

The Gunners silenced Everton’s fans with a first minute goal from Theo Walcott yet had to settle for a draw after Marouane Fellaini curled a low equaliser past Wojciech Szczesny from 25 yards shortly before the half-hour.

“In the Premier League we have played 14 games, eight away – at two Manchester [clubs], at two Liverpool [clubs],” said Wenger.

“If we play well at home we have the chance to come back.”

The draw left Arsenal seventh, one point behind Everton, yet the north Londoners now have four home games before the year ends, as well as visits to struggling Reading and Wigan.

Defender Laurent Koscielny picked up a groin strain and is set to miss three weeks, while Walcott suffered a minor ankle problem.
