Following a disastrous run of results, Arsenal have picked up some form and they are currently on a three-game winning run in all competitions.
The Gunners claimed a comfortable 3-0 home win over Watford in their last league fixture, and that win was sandwiched by two comfortable Europa League wins over AC Milan.
Following the international break, Arsenal will be keen to build upon their form, and they will also have an eye on their Europa League tie with CSKA Moscow next week.
The Gunners are currently sixth in the league table with 48 points. A top-four finish looks impossible as they are 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. This might prompt Arsene Wenger to prioritise Europa League and rest some of his players on Sunday.
However, their home form has been impeccable, and we are backing them to claim a comfortable win over Stoke.
Stoke are deeply embroiled in the relegation struggle and can’t seem to pick up a win. They are without a win in their last seven league games, and it appears that winless run won’t come to an end this week.
The Potter are 19th in the table with 27 points. They are only three points adrift of safety, but time is running out for them.
Earlier this season, Stoke managed a 1-0 win over Arsenal at Bet365 Stadium.
