Since Arsenal and Stoke are going to all the trouble of having a match, the least we can do is talk about it, right? Arsenal are rounding slowly into form, and a struggling-at-home Stoke side seem ripe for the picking. Fortunately, no Arsenal players were injured between yesterday afternoon and this morning; what remains to be seen is if young Ainsley Maitland-Niles made the bench or whether he'll be waiting for another day to get his first runout with the senior squad.
Not gonna lie - beating Stoke always feels good. So I'd like to feel good today, please, Arsenal. It's the holidays, after all.
