Arsenal travel to Stoke today knowing that three points will take them back to the top of the table ahead of Leicester City and Manchester City.
Games in Middle Earth are never much fun and we all know that our record up there is far from ideal in the last five years, but Mark Hughes’ Stoke are a completely different beast to Tony Pulis’s Orc Army.
But it is still a beast.
So, which Arsenal players will be booed for being kicked to pieces today? (Ozil reportedly out with an injury after missing training on Saturday, more on that as we get it).
Stoke: Butland, Pieters, Wollscheid, Shawcross, Johnson, Afellay, Whelan, Arnautovic, Bojan, Walters, Joselu
Subs: Haugaard, Muniesa, Odemwingie, v. Ginkel, Adam, Diouf, Crouch
Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Flamini, Campbell, Ox, Walcott, Giroud
Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Gabriel, GGibbs, Elneny, Arteta, Iwobi
