Mikel Arteta scored an injury-time winner for Everton from the penalty spot as Blackburn was made to pay for missing two second-half spotkicks by losing 1-0 on Saturday.

Junior Hoilett saw his penalty saved by Tim Howard at the start of the second half before Mauro Formica fired Blackburn's second spotkick against the post.

Arteta secured Everton's first win of the season after Christopher Samba was judged by referee Lee Mason to have climbed on the back of Marouane Fellaini.

Blackburn has lost all three games this season.
