It’s Stoke time and with the Orcs knowing a win here would end Arsenal’s Champions League ambitions, we know it’s going to be a tough match even if Mark Hughes says Stoke’s thinking won’t be that ‘personal’.
A ground we struggle at even when we’re in good form, this match is not set to be much fun, so who will Wenger turn to for the game?
Laurent Koscielny could return and it’s a toss-up as to whether Wenger risks him and further damage. If Kos starts, I expect to see Monreal shifted to wingback, Gibbs to drop out and Mustafi to take Monreal’s place at the back.
The Ox is the only other doubt but with his hamstring reportedly only tight rather than twanged. I fully expect him to start and bugger it completely ahead of the FA Cup final.
