Arsenal's stars have been photographed training as they build up to what is always a tough encounter with Premier League rivals Stoke City.
The Gunners welcome Mark Hughes' side to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, just a few weeks after Stoke defeated the North London side 3-2 at the Britannia Stadium after initially racing into a 3-0 lead.
Arsenal almost fought back on that occasion, only to fall short, but they will be hoping to get revenge this weekend with a number of their stars looking in good spirits at their latest training session.
Among those players was the returning Mesut Ozil, who has been side-lined with a ruptured knee ligament injury but will now be hoping to put his woes behind him to inspire Arsenal to success in 2015.
The £42.5million signing from Real Madrid was joined by £35million man Alexis Sanchez, who has already scored 16 goals this season and could well add to that on Sunday.
Below is a selection of images from Arsenal's training session ahead of Sunday's encounter:
