Back in September Arsenal beat Stoke at the Emirates, but that was not too much of a surprise as we have an excellent home record against Mark Hughes’ side, but up at the Britannia Stadium it is a completely different kettle of fish.
Over the last few years Arsenal fans have looked on an away game against Stoke City in much the same way that Flash Gordon felt when he had to stick his hand in that old tree stump that had a horrible pain and death inflicting creature lurking somewhere in the depths.

Arsenal paid the price for being too passive and suicidal defending by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. I am highly disappointed with the fact we threw away the lead and I cannot accept the fact we did far too many defensive changes and we were hoping to just roll over the finishing line and with the way we defended we were punished. This almost happened against City, but we had a two goal lead there which saved us.
Whatever else you could say about last night’s game between Liverpool and Arsenal, you could never say it was boring! It was gung-ho end-to-end stuff that is usually described as ‘a great advert for Premiership football’ although I personally would have preferred a boring 1-0 win for the Gunners!
