Stoke – Arsenal: Preview & Prediction

Arsenal misses nearly half the team in the move from Stoke. It will be hard for guns and that’s why I avoid betting on them, even if I start favorites.

Stoke

He debuted poorly in the new season with a defeat at the limit on Everton’s field. Still, the game did not look too bad and at times put pressure on it.
It was the third defeat in the last four games played.
But it is common knowledge that few teams usually win the former Britannia Stadium and remain a force at home.
He lost a few good players during the transfer period, like Arnautovic, Joselu or Walters. It was noted, however, with the acquisitions of Martins Indi, Darren Fletcher, Choupo-Moting and especially Jese, so I feel stronger than last year.
Mark Hughes did not face too much trouble, only Afellay and Ireland being uncertain.

Arsenal

He had an infarct match in the first round, winning Leicester (4-3).
It looks like it has the same minuses and pluses as last year. The attack is the strong point, but the defense is disappointing.
However, he has won both official matches in the new season and the morale is excellent.
There are a lot of problems for Arsene Wenger on this trip. Cazorla and Alexis remain injured, Laurent Koscielny is suspended, while Shkodran Mustafi, Francis Coquelin and Jack Wilshere are in the bout, but have just returned after injuries and are not 100% fit. Mertesacker, Gibbs and Paulista also have some physical problems.

Direct meetings

We have a rich history here with 105 direct confrontations. Arsenal heads off the balance, with 26 more victories.
Last season the guns won both games, even at handicap.
