Stoke City vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Stoke City entertain Arsenal in Saturday’s evening Premier League kick-off.

Stoke were edged out by Everton in their opening game thanks to a Wayne Rooney header.

Mark Hughes added Jese Rodriguez to his ranks in the week, with the winger joining on loan from Paris Saint Germain.

Arsenal twice recovered from a goal down to beat Leicester City in a classic last time out.

Late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud turned the game around for the Gunners.
