Match to be played on Sunday 11th January 2015 at 13:30. Venue: Emirates Stadium, London.
The gunners haven’t always been at their best this season, but the boss will be confident that his team has enough to get the better of a Stoke city, which has impressed against the bigger teams this season.
As has been the case for most of this season, Wenger has had several injuries to deal with in the run up to the game and he could make a couple of changes to his team to keep everyone fresh.
Mark Hughes will stress to his Stoke players that they don’t have much to lose and he will point towards the confidence built from the way the side played throughout the Christmas and New Year period, as a reason for the team to have a go at the Gunners at the Emirates.
Here are the potential teams that each boss could select for the game.
Arsenal: Ospina, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coquelin, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Sanchez
Stoke City: Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Muniesa, Pieters, Walters, N’Zonzi, Whelan, Arnautovic, Crouch, Assaidi
