Hello and welcome to Stoke City vs Arsenal LIVE… brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van rental parter Europcar.
Arsenal no longer sit at the top of the table as they go into this second away trip on the bounce after overcoming an early deficit to pick up a point in Wednesday’s Anfield thriller. City and Leicester’s results yesterday make this a must win game for the Gunners to regain top spot and a win at a ground they have hated visiting in recent tears will send out a clear message!
Now on 18 goals for the season after putting two past Simon Mignolet, Olivier Giroud will be looking to add to that tally against a Stoke backline struck by injuries.
But Stoke’s in-form hitman Marko Arnautovic will have just as much confidence at the other end. At just four points off the top four, Mark Hughes’ men will be hungry to keep climbing.
However, the Gunners have the league’s chief assist man in Mesut Ozil and the hosts will need to keep very close tabs if they are to stop him providing a match winner today.
