Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen can't see Arsenal challenging for the title this season after Saturday's win.

"With the way the other teams are playing, it's going to be really hard for them. They have shown in the past they are a fantastic football side but they are just lacking that bit of physicality," said the Dane.

"When Chelsea came here, they matched us in the challenges whereas Arsenal weren't quite there. That's the difference. They lack that bit of spine you need. I expected more of them. Once we got the second goal, it felt like we were cruising. They lost belief. I think they expected a bit of an easier ride and no one's going to get that here."
