Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits his team has been hit badly by injury after their dismal defeat at Stoke City.

"We have very bad injuries to (Emmanuel) Adebayor and (Theo) Walcott, and there is (Bacary) Sagna," Wenger told reporters.

"One or two have knocks as well. It is the kind of game we played today and when you are a little bit short on sharpness, you are less agile and get out of tackles less quickly."
