Stoke City yesterday secured a shock 1-0 win over Arsenal in the Premier League and, on Sunday, the Stoke Police Twitter account trolled the North London club.

New signing Jese Rodriguez scored the only goal of the game early in the second half, beating Petr Cech with a fine finish on his weaker foot.

The defeat yet again has Arsenal fans questioning whether veteran Frenchman Arsene Wenger is the right man for the job.

Arsenal finished outside the top four last season, missing out on Champions League football for the first time in the 21st century.

Despite that, Wenger put pen-to-paper on a new two year deal in north London following the FA Cup final victory over Chelsea.

The Gunners have made only two signings thus far and patience was wearing thin amongst their supporters on Saturday evening.

As happens so often when Arsenal lose, Mesut Ozil received much of the criticism following Stoke's impressive win.

Signed for £42.5m from Real Madrid in 2013, the 28-year-old German playmaker is still yet to convince pundits and fans in England.

Liverpool and England midfield legend Steven Gerrard producing a scathing rant on BT Sport following yesterday's match, labelling Ozil a 'liability'.

Stoke Police got in on the action on Sunday morning, tweeting an Arsenal fan an explanation of why it took them so long to reply.

Wenger leapt to Ozil's defence amid criticism from TV pundits.

"I think he [Ozil] did fight," insisted the French manager.

"It is difficult to single anybody out. I believe we had many, many chances and personally I don't think he deserves [criticism]."

Steven Gerrard has praised Ozil in the past but was incredibly harsh following Arsenal's first defeat of the season.

"I just worry about his body language and his reaction when the ball is turned over," said Gerrard. "He offers his teammates nothing defensively and away from home he’s a liability.

"Both his and Xhaka’s reaction in the build-up to the goal is weak. Ozil gives up and quits, he doesn’t track the run."

Arsenal and their opinion-splitting midfielder face a tricky trip to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool next weekend.
