Arsenal draw another stalemate

Arsenal have drawn 0-0 for the second week running, as the Gunners failed to pick up a win against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.

In a tense game both sides had chances to pick up all three points, but in the end the spoils were shared.

Arsene Wenger has dismissed concerns over his side’s lack of goals this season so far and feels it was a hard-earned point.

“We were not in trouble defensively and we created some chances that we couldn’t take,” the French coach told Sky Sports.

“We don’t take our chances, but it was a solid game with a dominant spirit and overall I believe there’s a lot of positives in there.

“The negative is that we couldn’t score for two games now, but I believe that will come. There are many new players and to find each other in the final third may take a little bit more time.

“The organisation and technical level was good, but we missed a bit in the final third. The adjustment of our passing, and the spontaneous way to take our chances, is not completely automatic, so we still have some work but there’s a lot of positives,” he concluded.

Arsenal travel to take on Liverpool at Anfield next Sunday.
