It’s the game Arsenal hates to play, and if they have aspirations of winning the Premier League, they will have to get over their Stoke City rivals when they travel to the Britannia Stadium on Jan. 17. Can the Gunners continue their championship march? Click here to WATCH the live stream!
It promises to be a fascinating match-up as Arsenal goes to Stoke City hoping to claim all three points, as they continue to go for the Premier League title. But the Gunners will be wary of the task ahead, having tasted victory at the Britannia Stadium only once in the league in the past 34 years, as the Potters continue to defy the odds.
Arsenal’s legendary coach Arsene Wenger knows that this is the ultimate test for his players and will have to prepare tactically for Stoke’s physical approach. However, Stoke coach Mark Hughes will want to exploit Arsenal’s weaknesses and play an aggressive game designed to stifle his opponent’s more creative players.

The last time these two met was at the beginning of the season, when Arsenal recorded their first win of the campaign with a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium in London on Sept. 12, 2015. They had Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to thank for the goals that day and will be hoping for more of the same from those two exciting performers.
But as we told you, Arsenal doesn’t have much luck when they travel to Stoke. Last season in the corresponding game, Stoke held out for a 3-2 win after racing to a 3-0 lead at halftime.
It will certainly be a fiery game and will really show whether this Arsenal team is capable of fighting to be Premier League champions. A win would see them top the league and sustain their title push.
