EPL: Arsenal Suffer Stoke Defeat
Stoke 1 - 0 Arsenal
Arsenal on Saturday suffered their first defeat of the current English Premier League season with a loss to Stoke City.
Arsenal, who came from behind to win their first EPL game last weekend against Leicester City, managed a goalless first half, but was unable to do same in at the Britannia Stadium.
Arsenal thought they had equalised when Alexandre Lacazette rifled in, only for the France striker to be ruled offside.
After a barren first half, Jese Rodriguez, who joined Mark Hughes' side from Paris St-Germain on Wednesday, slid in from a tight angle after being left unmarked to pick up Saido Berahino's pass just 90 seconds into the second half.
The Arsene Wenger tutored side continued to press in the closing stages but Stoke, who had only 23% possession, remained resolute to earn their first win of the Premier League season.
