Stoke are a bit of a bogey team for the Gunners, especially when Arsene Wenger’s side are on the road. Stoke have lost just one of their seven league games at the Britannia Stadium against Arsenal.

But this Gunners side feels different than some previous ones. The began gameweek 22 top of the table, and they are on a four game unbeaten run, scoring goals and looking dangerous.

Alexis Sanchez could return on Sunday, while Mohamed Elneny could make his debut in the match.

Olivier Giroud (9 goals in 9 games) will lead the Arsenal attack, supported by the ever more impressive Joel Campbell and assist-king Mesut Ozil.

As for the Potters, Xherdan Shaqiri and Geoff Cameron are out injured.

Moreover, Stoke are in great nick in the league with three wins in their last four games, as Marko Arnautovic and Bojan star for Mark Hughes’ team.

Final stat: Arsenal have conceded seven goals in their last two Premier League away games.

This could be a cracker!
