Match of the Day host Gary Lineker is often the source for great banter on Twitter, and the 56-year-old was at it again in the wake of Arsenal's defeat to Stoke on Saturday evening.

The Gunners were sub-par at the Bet365 Stadium and ended up losing the game 1-0 to their bogey team of recent years - prompting those ever-familiar cries of #WengerOut afterwards.

Something else that's ever-familiar to do with Stoke is the notion that new players may find life difficult playing for or against the club following a transfer, or that superstar players may theoretically struggle.

The common phrase that has been coined over the years is 'But can they do it on a wet Tuesday night in Stoke?' and that was exactly the route Mr. Lineker went down when discussing Jese.

The star, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, enjoyed a terrific debut for the Potters and hit the game's only goal to secure Stoke's first points of the season.

The former Real Madrid flop is hoping for a renaissance following an underwhelming start to his career, and the 24-year-old, who was farmed out on loan to Las Palmas for the back end of last season, is hoping to make his mark in the Premier League.
