Arsenal were off on their travels to the Britannia Stadium for their Premier League clash against Mark Hughes’ Stoke City side on Sunday afternoon, as they once again were keen to secure a win and go back to the top of the points table. The Gunners had been performing really well this season and were hoping that they could keep winning, as they were looking to secure the tilte after more than a decade. The Londoners had a tough game in mid-week against Liverpool, as they played a 3-3 draw against Jurgen Klopp’s sidea way from home and it was quite important to keep winning. The Frenchman’s side were hoping to avoid any slipups on their travels once again, though things did not go exactly as per what he might have planned.
It was the home side who clearly enjoyed the game more than their opponents, as Wenger’s side were missing their talisman Mesut Ozil with an injury. There were chances created by both sides right through the game and the Potters’ keeper Jack Butland denied both Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud twice with superb saves. On the other hand, Arsenal’s Petr Cech kept the scores level for the visitors as well with some brilliant blocks of his own, in an intense game to say the least and there were no goals scored right through the 90 minutes. Chances were not finished off and the score remained at 0-0, as the north London side went back to the top of the table for the moment on goal difference.
We don’t need draws with small teams like Liverpool n Stoke we need wins Mr.AW Regards : Frustrated Arsenal Fans #COYG

Stoke fans chanted, “He walks with a limp,” about a 19 year old who got a double leg break. Joke of a club. #COYG
