Photos: Arsenal stars in training including Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez

Emirates Inside

Arsenal stars trained ahead of their Premier League match against Stoke City on Sunday.

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:
