Arsenal were thoroughly overwhelmed by Stoke at the Britannia as they were at one point 3-0 down. If there is any hope the Gunners can take from that game, it is that it despite being off-key all game, it finished 3-2 suggesting Arsenal can win today's game if they bring their A game.
That might prove difficult however; Arsenal and Stoke are on identical form in regards to the past six games. Though Arsenal do hold the upper hand when the two sides play at the Emirates - winning their last six games against Stoke.
With only 7 points separating each side, they both will be desperate for a win.
