The Gunners will be in a confident mood heading into this evening’s clash following their 4-3 win over Leicester City last weekend.

Arsenal were 3-2 down going into the last ten minutes of the game but goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud turned the game around in their favour.

Stoke City host Arsenal at the Britannia stadium today, kick-off is scheduled for 17:30 (GMT).

Per Mertesacker, Shkodran Mustafi and Coquelin all returned to first team training for Arsenal this week.

However, star defender Laurent Koscielny will serve the final match of his three-game suspension. The France international picked up the suspension last season against Everton.

Alexis Sanchez meanwhile misses today’s game due to an abdominal strain injury.
