* Best odds for selected bets are shown


  • The Britannia is something of a bogey ground for Arsenal, who have won only 1 of their last 6 trips there, losing on 3 occasions.
  • The last time they won there was over 4 years ago, but they are a much improved outfit now and Stoke are on a terrible run, having won only 1 of their last 10 Premier League games.
  • Stoke held Manchester City for 70 minutes last time out, so they will take confidence from that but again are unlikely to have enough to get anything from this game.
