Arsenal 1/4 – Draw 4/1 – Stoke 10/1
Odds shown are from William Hill and are subject to change

Arsenal host Stoke at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday looking to pick-up consecutive wins for the first time this season.
Arsenal have been unconvincing so far this season. Arsene Wenger’s men have won two out of their four league games so far this season, but both their victories have been aided by own goal’s from opposition defenders.
Last time out the Gunners won 1-0 at ten man Newcastle, courtesy of an unfortunate own goal from Magpies centre-back Fabricio Coloccini, after the Argentinian attempted to block Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s strike on goal.
Gunners fans were left frustrated on transfer deadline day, as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided not to strengthen his squad.
Stoke currently find themselves 18th in the Premier League table, after failing to win any of their first four league games. Last time out the Potters were defeated 1-0 at home against West Brom, who are now managed by former-Stoke boss Tony Pulis.
The men from Staffordshire were not helped by the fact both Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam were dismissed in the first half. The odds are against the Potters picking-up anything in north London, especially with their now depleted squad.

Facts And Figures

Arsenal have the better Premier League head-to-head record, winning eight of the 14 meetings. The Potters have won four and there has also been two draws.
However, Arsenal have been completely dominant at home in the Premier League, having won all seven games played against the Potters in north London.
Despite Arsenal’s better record in the fixture, the Potters have won two out of the last three meetings with the Gunners, although both of those wins came at the Britannia Stadium.
The Potters have won three out of the last seven Premier League meetings with Arsene Wenger’s team.

Team News

The home side are still without attacking midfielder Tomas Rosicky and striker Danny Welbeck, who could miss up to six months after having knee surgery. However, England international Jack Wilshere may return to the squad after missing previous games with an ankle injury.
German centre-back Per Mertesacker is also a slight doubt, but is expected to return to the centre of defence to partner Laurent Koscielny. Mesut Ozil could come back in for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud is likely to start the game in-place of Theo Walcott.
For the visitors centre-back Ryan Shawcross and forward Peter Odemwingie are expected to miss out through injury, while midfielders Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam will both serve suspensions. Marko Arnautovic and Stephen Ireland could replace the missing pair.

Possible Arsenal line-up: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Sanchez, Ramsey, Ozil, Giroud

Possible Stoke line-up: Butland, Johnson, Cameron, Muniesa, Pieters, Whelan, Van Ginkel, Shaqiri, Ireland, Arnautovic, Diouf

Arsenal vs Stoke Match Prediction

Stoke are never an easy opponent for any team, but they have an awful record at the Emirates. The Gunners owe their fans a performance following their underwhelming home displays so far this season.
I cannot see anything other than a home win in this clash and Wenger’s side may get back to scoring ways with own goal their current top scorer. Lol!!!
