Stoke City 0-0 Arsenal

Disappointed Arsenal players after draw against Stoke City.

Arsenal haven’t scored neither conceded a league goal this season.On Sunday it was  a second draw for both the clubs this season. Arsenal failed to take their chances once again as Cazorla, Giroud and Podolski all missed glorious chances to open goal account for the Gunners.Throughout the match Arsenal looked a stronger side penetrating the Stoke defense but failing to convert.Stoke had a goal and a penalty rightly denied by the referee as Peter Crouch headed one to Jermaine Pennant who put it in the back of the net.For Stoke city it was a positive result to manage a draw against last years top four side whereas Arsenal needs to win if they have to remain in hunt of title run.

Manchester City is having a rusty and lackluster start to the season as for the second week in a row they had to work really hard to earn a points against Liverpool at Anfield.The Reds were the stronger side for most of the match and only for their defensive lapses had to concede a draw.Merseyside took a 1-0 lead with a brilliant header from defender Skrtel in the 34th minute.For rest of the half Liverpool had a very strong first half, dominating possession.Equalizer came in the 63rd minute when Yaya Toure scored from close range.Luis Suarez got the lead back with a superb curling free kick around the wall and past goalkeeper Joe Hart.An unforced error allowed City to level the match in 80th minute when Carlos Tevez easily intercepted a back pass from Skrtel and dribbled around goalkeeper Pepe Reina and scored.
