Stoke City 1-0 Arsenal – Premier League – 1st March 2014

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Stoke City v Arsenal - Britannia Stadium

A rather limp Arsenal suffered a potentially fatal blow in the race for the title after coming a cropper against Stoke. The home side arguably deserved the win, with the only goal of the game coming after Laurent Koscielny handled the ball in the Arsenal box in the second-half. Jonathan Walters converted the resulting spot-kick to win the game for the highly-organised Potters. Indeed, the Gunners struggled to create any decent chances throughout the game, with sub Yaya Sanogo blasting over late on. While some of Stoke’s play was unsurprisingly ‘rugged’, Arsenal really under-performed and now trail league leaders Chelsea by a considerable four points.

    I think it’s a certainty that Arsenal will finish in a CL spot at the end of the season, but with Liverpool showing real strength (not to mention resilience & flair), they should not bank on the top 3.

    Giroud is so inconsistent. Maybe if he concentrated more on his professional career than his private life that would be eradicated. Ozil looks like a fish out of water. Is the PL too tough for him? I am still unconvinced by the Arsenal defence. Consistency is key for a championship winning side (though the Koscielny penalty was a bit unfortunate).


    Mid-table. Carry on.
