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.

Mesut Ozil should start for Arsenal if fit by Sam P
There was an article on this website the other day that suggested that it was too risky for Arsenal to throw Mesut Ozil straighht back into the starting line-up for the visit of the tough tackling and physically aggressive Stoke City tomorrow, even if the German international is fit enough to start.
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.
Arsenal will look to turn a good week into a fantastic one when Mark Hughes brings his Stoke City side to the Emirates on Sunday. A lot of football experts and fans, including myself, have been very surprised by Stoke this season, but I expect Arsene Wenger and an in-form Arsenal side to bring them back to Earth with a bump this weekend.
