Wenger Blames Defenders, Referee, Bad Luck For Stoke Defeat

In an entertaining game, the former Real Madrid man's goal prompted Arsenal to throw everything at the home defence in a bid to claw their way back but Jack Butland proved a rock in Stoke's tremendous rearguard action.

Jese spent nine seasons at the Bernabeu, scoring 12 goals in 62 league appearances, majority as substitute, and was part of the Champions League-winning squads of both 2014 and 2016.

It was an early blow to Arsenal's title aspirations and left them three points behind early pace-setters Manchester United, who won 4-0 for the second game running at Swansea City.

Arsenal's business has seen the arrivals of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette. Arsene Wenger has made it clear he wants the Chilean to stay, but with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, a big offer will be hard to turn down.

Captain Ryan Shawcross has been linked with a move to Burnley, but Hughes said: "You might read it but it won't happen".

"It was a very frustrating evening".

Following their 1-0 defeat at Stoke, Wenger said: "I expect to sell players first [before we buy]".

"We know in this kind of game it is important not to make a mistake but straight after half-time we were too sluggish on defending and we paid for it".

Lacazette had the ball in the net with a sharp finish from inside the penalty area but despite appearing to be level, the assistant adjudged that the Frenchman was offside.

The new signing struck two minutes after the break and the Potters were able to deal with frequent pressure from Arsenal to keep a clean sheet and get their first win on the board this campaign. "I have no idea how much we had the ball, but it was a lot", Klopp told Sky Sports.

"I believe that some teams will get something here who want to play at the top".
