Mathieu Flamini talked up Arsenal’s character after Sunday’s goalless draw with Stoke City.

The Premier League leaders were unable to find a winner against a stubborn Potters defence at the Britannia Stadium.

Flamini started the Premier League clash alongside Wales international Aaron Ramsey in the heart of Arsene Wenger’s midfield.

The 31-year-old was pleased with a point at a ground where Arsenal have a poor record over the past five years.

Flamini posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page: “We fought hard today and showed a lot of character..! Thanks to the fans who travelled up for their fantastic support. #arsenal #gunners #premierleague”

The former AC Milan midfielder has been enjoying a run in Wenger’s first-team thanks to the continued absence of Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin.

However, Flamini is facing increased competition for a starting spot after Wenger signed Mohamed Elmeny from Basel in the January transfer window.
