Arsenal drew for a second time in a week as they were held 0-0 at Stoke City.

The Gunners navigated two very tricky away games in a little over 5 days as they sought to strengthen their lead at the top of the table and whilst on the face of it it seems as though we have dropped 4 points, only time will tell as to whether it is actually 2 points gained.

Arsene Wenger described the game against Stoke as a “physical battle” which is not unfamiliar territory at the Britania.

‘It was an old-fashioned Stoke battle. They made the game very physical, the crowd were up for it, the players were up for it,’

‘They went for a very direct game and we had to show physical response, solidarity, fighting spirit, togetherness – which is what we did.’
