Arsenal dominated against Stoke in an edgy clash at the Britannia Stadium but their lack of a cutting edge saw their stuttering start to the season continue in another frustrating goalless draw.

The Gunners bossed the game in terms of possession but had limited clear-cut chances as they struggled to open their Barclays Premier League account in the absence of Robin van Persie.

Stoke saw a penalty shout turned down as Arsenal's three-pronged attack of Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho failed to make a breakthrough.
