Who would have thought that Mark Hughes could change Stoke City into a proper football-playing team rather than a bunch of thugs fighting to stay in the Premier League? Well it looks like he has done it, although Shaquiri will not be playing tomorrow the Potters have won their last two games without him.
Arsenal were absolutely amazing in todays game against Stoke and it looked like a practise game against an U21 side, except for the brilliant performance of the Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland. He denied our strikers time and time again, and once our strikers learn to beat keepers like that we will win by cricket scores every week.

The Stoke City manager Mark Hughes seemed to get a bit upset in his pre-match briefing ahead of tomorrows game at Arsenal. The last meeting between the two sides was very eventful, with Stoke going an incredible three goals in front before a spirited Arsenal comback brought it back to 3-2.
