Podolski goal secures Arsenal victory

Published 1 Comments

Lukas Podolski's deflected free-kick proved the difference as Arsenal eked out a much-needed 1-0 victory against Stoke.

After securing just five points from as many Barclays Premier League matches, the Gunners were in danger of losing ground on the top four coming into the game. Arsene Wenger's side looked set for another frustrating day at the office - thanks in no small part to an outstanding display by Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

However, substitute Podolski popped up 12 minutes from time with a low free-kick that deflected in off Geoff Cameron.
