Jese Rodriguez scores on Stoke debut to down Arsenal

Jese Rodriguez struck a superb debut winner as Stoke held on for a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the Premier League.

The former Real Madrid forward, who joined on a season-long loan from Paris St Germain this week, struck the only goal after 47 minutes at the newly-expanded bet365 Stadium.

Arsenal were aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty in the first half and Alexandre Lacazette had an effort ruled out for offside among a host of other chances created by the visitors.

Jack Butland was also impressive in the home goal as Stoke claimed their first points of the season but Arsene Wenger’s side will wonder how they came away with nothing.
