Newcomer Jese lifts Stoke to victory over Arsenal

Stoke City (1-0-1) put in a fine rearguard performance to beat Arsenal 1-0 at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday evening.

New signing Jese was the Potters' match winner, hammering low into the bottom right-hand corner of the goal just 90 seconds after the half-time interval.

Arsenal (1-0-1) went all-out to find an equaliser but found Jack Butland in inspired form, with the England goalkeeper denying Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck.

Alexandre Lacazette saw a goal chalked off for a marginal offside decision, too, while substitute Olivier Giroud's header deep into injury time whizzed past the far post.

The Potters pick up their first win of the Premier League campaign while the Gunners are dealt an early blow in their title challenge.
