Mikel Arteta had to receive treatment on the sidelines after being hit in the mouth during Arsenal’s match against Hull City, as he was later seen with a rather funny smile after he was caught with a missing tooth.

The Spanish midfielder was caught by the shoulders of Shane Long before receiving some treatment for a bleeding mouth. However, it was later during a goal celebration that fans noticed Arteta was missing one of his front teeth.

His teammates saw the funny side, as they posted a group photo mocking the Spaniard, one where Arteta refused to show his teeth while his teammates were all smiling (teeth out of course)!

See the celebratory picture along with the ones taken by his teammates below.
