Arsenal, undefeated on the season (hey, if Chelsea can be in crisis after one game, I can describe a single game, single win season as “undefeated on the season”), head north to the land of the Potters today to take on Stoke City in their newly renovated (sorta) stadium.
Kos is still out, serving his suspension, but Per Mertesacker’s head and Shkodran Mustafi’s fitness have both recovered enough that they’ll be available to play.
Two wins from two would be a really good way to keep August rolling, wouldn’t you say?
