Arsenal defeated Stoke City 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to win back to back Premier League games for the first time this season.
The victory was Arsenal’s first of the season at their home ground as well. The North Londoners dominated all game and should have scored more goals. However, due to poor finishing and a fantastic display from Jack Butland, the Gunners could only score twice.
Nevertheless, third clean sheet in a row and another three points earned did put a smile on the supporters’ face.
Arguably the best player for Arsenal was none other than their rock solid defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin. The French international’s brilliant tackle was pivotal in helping Arsenal win the ball for the first goal. Moreover, he was tidy with the ball in his feet as well.
The Gunners will face champions Chelsea next who are in horrific form at the moment. Arsene Wenger will probably have the best chance to beat Mourinho for the first time in the PL.
