Stoke’s magnificent unbeaten run came to a shocking end as we were beaten 3-1 at the Britannia following a game blighted by a horrible injury to Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.

This piece will not follow the normal format so there won’t be any player ratings, I would however like to discuss the main talking point which was the tackle that ended Ramsey’s season and the subsequent witch hunt against Ryan Shawcross who, in my opinion, was as innocent as Ramsey in the whole affair. The referee himself admitting that the tackle was not worthy of a red card and that it was the injury that prompted the sending off.
