3. Another goalkeeping wonder –Jack Butland
The best player on the pitch today and the best player for Stoke for the fifth consecutive game was Jack Butland. Many thought that Begovic’s loss would be too much to cope up with for the Potters, as no one expected Butland to step-up and produce some of the most amazing goalkeeping performances that the Premier League has witnessed in recent seasons. The young Englishman gives his all in every match and was the man of the match in today’s encounter against Arsenal. Single-handedly, he saved Stoke from a humbling at the hands of the Gunners making saves left, right and centre. If not for Butland, Stoke would not have even those 2 points in their kitty.
