Stoke City may be missing a few players ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Arsenal, but Mark Hughes’ club still have the talent to continue their recent dominance over the Gunners.
Arsenal has won just once in their last seven trips to the Britannia, including a 3-2 loss last season. It’s a trend Arsenal would like to buck, especially since Wenger’s men are currently one point behind Leicester for the table lead.
While not in the title race, Stoke have been on their own strong run of form. The Potters have won three of their last four fixtures, and another victory would put them just one spot outside European qualification.
Xherdan Shaqiri and Geoff Cameron are both unavailable for Stoke today, but Marko Arnautovic should return to the lineup. For Arsenal, Alexis Sanchez will most likely be unavailable again, but it’s possible Egyptian Mohamed Elneny makes his first appearance with the club.
Today’s match will be broadcast on USA Network, starting at 10:00 a.m. Eastern.
