Arsenal stands in 6th place at the moment with 2-1-1 and after loss against West Ham team have started to show good performance. 2-1 on road against Crystal Palace, 0-0 against Liverpool and 1-0 against Newcastle. However, against Newcastle Arsenal took absolute dominance, but could not score more then one. Arsenal have won their last 8 home matches against Stoke in all competitions.
Stoke have proven Arsenal's bogey side in recent years, but the team under Mark Hughes is now a far cry from the side that used to bully Arsenal into submission during Tony Pulis' era. Team stands in 18th place with 0-2-2 and likely to leave stadium with 0-2-3. 0-1 against West Brom and 2 red cards! Team have had a lot of misunderstandings threw the matches and the result have not been the best.
Arsenal are undefeated in 35 of their last 38 home matches in the Premier League. Arsenal have been winning at both half time and full time in 5 of their last 7 home matches against Stoke in all competitions. I expect 2-0 win for Arsenal, but though one, as Stoke could make comeback anytime. With creating scoring chances Arsenal have no problems, with finishing .. it is time to start.
The Potters have picked up all three points in two of their last three matches against Arsenal, but they haven't won at Arsenal in the league since 1981. They haven't started the season particularly well and victory may be beyond them here.
