Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League with a battling 0-0 draw away at Stoke City.

The Britannia Stadium has not been a happy hunting ground for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners, and they still haven't won in Staffordshire since 2010. 

However, the point could prove vital in the long run and the French boss only has one man to thank after the draw.

Petr Cech was in inspired form as he made a number of crucial saves in the second half, none more so than a brilliant double save to deny Joselu and Bojan Krkic.

Cech's opposite number, Jack Butland, was also on top form on an evening when goalkeepers came out on top.

But it was the Premier League's all-time clean sheet record holder who stole the headline as Arsenal took a point back to North London. Here is some of the best reaction from Twitter.

The Gunners were without Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in midfield and their lack of creativity shone through on a tough evening.

However, it was a battling performance at a stadium where Arsenal have notoriously struggled.

Too often over the past 12 years, the Emirates outfit have failed to sustain their title bid, and their lack of a top-class goalkeeper was regularly cited as a huge problem.

But they now have one of the best goalkeepers in the world and his performance was just another example of his immense quality.
