Stoke 3-2 Arsenal: Gunners missed start of game - Wenger

Arsene Wenger says his Arsenal side "missed the start of the game" as his side conceded three goals before half time in a 3-2 defeat at Stoke.

Peter Crouch opened the scoring after just 19 seconds, and further first half goals from Bojan and Jon Walters gave the Potters a commanding 3-0 half time lead.

The Gunners staged a stirring second-half fightback with goals from Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey, but after Calum Chambers was sent off for a second bookable offence Stoke held on to deny Arsenal a third successive Premier League victory.
