Match to be played on Saturday 6th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke.
Mark Hughes will consider his Stoke side unlucky not to have taken anything away from the game against Manchester United earlier this week.
Only the heroics of goalkeeper David De Gea and a bit of luck from Ashley Young were enough to stop Stoke from equalising late into the game and Hughes will be determined for his team to dig and get a result against Arsenal.
The Gunners were narrow winners against Southampton last night thanks to a late Alexis Sanchez goal, with Arsene Wenger’s side showing impressive resilience in recent games to grind out results.
Wenger will be hoping for a more free flowing and comprehensive performance against Stoke but it’s important they try and deal effectively with the likely physical tactics that Stoke will use during the game.
Here are the potential sides that each club could select for the match.
Stoke City: Begovic, Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Peiters, N’Zonzi, Cameron, Arnautovic, Krkic, Crouch, Diouf
Arsenal: Martinez, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla, Sanchez, Welbeck
