"He's got to be 100 per cent right that's a penalty".

Chances were few and far between in a turgid first half at the Emirates Stadium, as Xherdan Shaqiri went close early on, before Aaron Ramsey clipped the top of the crossbar in the only two clear-cut opportunities.

Cast your mind back to August 2017, at the start of this season, when Stoke City beat Arsenal at the bet365 and we all thought they would finish ninth again. "It was a game changer", he said.
