Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Stoke City.

Arsenal will try to get their Premier League campaign back on track with a home fixture against Stoke City.

The Gunners were close to losing all three points against Liverpool on Wednesday when the Reds took a two-goal lead after an hour of play, but Arsene Wenger's team managed to come back to clinch a 2-2 draw at the Emirates.

Despite their fightback, the North London side reside four points away from a Champions League spot in the table, while their weekend's opponents can improve their place in the top 10 with a scalp.

Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski are likely to start up front with support from Theo Walcott, while the Potters could opt for Jonathan Walters and Kenwyne Jones up front.
