Stoke boss Tony Pulis critical of defence

Tony Pulis is critical of his "disappointing" Stoke defence after they concede two late goals to lose 3-1 against Arsenal.

The Stoke boss insists the Premier League is still the club's priority despite competing in the Europa League this season, but he does admit his side are finding their hectic fixture list "challenging".

Pulis adds that he must now "lift the spirits" of his players in time for their Carling Cup match against Liverpool on Wednesday.
