On 15 minutes, West Ham winger Marko Arnautovic saw a headed effort ruled out for offside. Arsenal came forward again on 23 minutes. A good team move involving Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud resulted in the ball being played to Sanchez, whose deflected effort flew wide of the post. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win over Stoke at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. England winger Theo Walcott had to withdraw from the team late through illness and was replaced by young German Serge Gnabry.
Record signing Mesut Ozil made his home debut and had a hand in the Gunners opening goal on five minutes.
Jack Wilshere was fouled by Charlie Adam 25 yards out. Ozil’s free-kick was parried by Potters keeper Asmir Begovic, only for in-form Aaron Ramsey to fire home the rebound. The Gunners looked comfortable and passed the ball around with Ozil central to their play. .......Read more here.....
