Arsene Wenger’s side faced Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday, as they looked to climb to the top of the Premier League table once again with a win. The visitors were looking to secure all three points on their travels and get back to the top spot after a mid-week 3-3 draw against rivals Liverpool at Anfield. The French manager was hoping for a good solid performance from his side after a decent outing against the Reds, though it was never going to be an easy game against a resilient Stoke side, who would not give up that easy at home.

The home side played a good game despite their injuries, with Wenger’s side also missing Mesut Ozil with an injury. Both sides had good chances to score,
yet failed to capitalize on them, as the Potters held on thanks to Jack Butland, who was superb on the night. He kept out Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud twice to keep his side level. Also, Arsenal’s Petr Cech was forced to make some good saves with some brilliant blocks of his own. Though there were no goals, it was never a boring affair. However, at full-time, both keepers managed to keep clean sheets, as it ended 0-0, with either side taking home a point. Arsenal eventually climbed to the top once again, tied on points with Leicester City.

 

 

Here is what Wenger had to say after the game about his side’s performance on their travels in which they once again failed to secure a win:

“We lacked some creativity to force away through. They were really up for it and were fighting from the first minute.”

“After our history here it was a positive result. Petr Cech played very well today and we had some chances.”

“I thought Alex Oxlade Chamberlain had very interesting moments in the game where he showed his qualities.”

Talking about Aaron Ramsey, Wenger added, “I don’t listen to the chants and I focus on the game. Shutting it out is the best way to deal with it.”
