Stoke City ran out 1-0 winners against Arsenal in a entertaining game at the Bet365 Arena tonight. Lets see how the players rated …

 

 

Stoke City

 

Butland 8

Immense, will be England’s number one very soon.

 

Zouma 7

A little rusty at times, but did well overall. If he stays fit could turn out to be a inspired signing.

 

Shawcross 7

Solid performance, from the Stoke stalwart.

 

Cameron 7

Decent shift, played his part in the home side’s excellent second-half defensive display.

 

Diouf 6

Worked tirelessly down the flank, but looks a bit of a liability as a wing-back. Lucky not to give away a penalty in first-half.

 

Fletcher 6

Lost the ball a few times in the first-half, but his experience was vital as Stoke saw out the game.

 

Allen 7

Snappy in the tackle and got forward as much as he could, good display.

 

Pieters 7

Linked well with Jese down the left at times and stuck to his task defensively.

 

Shaqiri 5

Subbed early after pulling a hamstring.

 

Jese 8 (MOTM)

The perfect start to the young Spaniards Potters career as he bagged the winning goal with a cool finish. Looks  a threat with the ball at his feet.

 

Choupo-Moting 6

Worked hard up top, movement was good but looked a bit clumsy on the ball at times, will improve once he is fully match-fit.

 

Subs

 

Berahino 7

Nice assist for Jese goal and one good effort that was saved by Cech, but still looks a shadow of the player of a few seasons ago.

 

Sobhi 5

Showed his in-experince with poor decision-making in the closing stages.

 

Martins Indi N/A

No impact

 

Arsenal 

 

Cech 6

Couple of decent saves, had no chance for goal.

 

Mustafi 5

A good technical footballer, but still big question marks over whether he is suited to the Premier League.

 

Monreal 5

Badly exposed for Stokes goal, I’ll say it again, he should be nowhere near playing as the centre-man in a back three.

 

Kolasinac 6

The only member of Arsenal’s back three to come out of the game with any credit, sacrificed late on as The Gunners pushed for a equaliser.

 

Oxlade-Chamberlain 7

Arsenal’s best player, showcased his power and pace down the right-flank all day.

 

Ramsey 7

Good on the ball and dangerous going forward, him and Xhaka just don’t seem to work as a midfield two however.

 

Xhaka 5

Poor, back to his form of last season, gave the ball away for the Stoke goal, just as he did against Leicester last week.

 

Bellerín 6

Worked hard, but looked a round peg in a square hole at left-wing back.

 

Özil 3

No ! He definitely can’t do it on a wet and windy night in Stoke.

 

Welbeck 6

Always seems to create chances, but lacks composure in front of goal.

 

Lacazette 6

Quiet for most of the game, although he was unlucky to have a second-half goal chalked off for offside.

Subs

 

Giroud 6

Tried hard but couldn’t replicate the impact he had a week ago against Leicester.

 

Iwobi N/A

No impact.

 

Walcott N/A

No Impact.
