Arsenal 3 (Ramsey 5, Mertesacker 36, Sagna 72)

Stoke City 1 (Cameron 26)

Emirates Stadium, London, England

Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium.

Aaron Ramsey gave the Gunners a fifth-minute lead but Geoff Cameron equalised for the Potters in the 26th minute.

Nine minutes before half-time, Per Mertesacker's flicked header restored Arsenal's lead.

Then, in the 72nd minute, Bacary Sagna rose highest inside the Stoke penalty area to head home from Mesut Ozil's free-kick.

The main focus of attention for Gunners supporters before the game was on Ozil's home debut and the Germany international did not disappoint with two official assists.

But it was the form of Mathieu Flamini which impressed and he was given the man-of-the-match award for his display.

One slight concern for Arsene Wenger was the departure of Jack Wilshere following an ankle problem in the second period.
