12BET (Football Tip) In the last five head-to-head matches of Arsenal and Stoke, the Potters barely scored against the Gunners. Four of these games were won by the visitors, while one game ended in a goalless draw. With this, it looks like Arsene Wenger’s squad will take pleasure in defeating the hosts.

Stoke City have been forced to settle in 1-0 defeat against Everton. The team could have equalized scores as Xherdan Shaqiri struck powerfully. But unfortunately his effort has been denied by England goal keeper Jordan Pickford.
The game was certainly disappointing for StokeBut it’s obvious that Mark Hughes’ squad plays with much more confidence now than they did under the supervision of former manager—Tony Pulis. This means that the team’s attractive performance could help create good match results.
The battle between Arsenal and Leicester City has been full of tension. At the 56th minute, the Blues have already three points while Arsenal have only two. Good thing, Arsene Wenger decided to let Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud play in the game as substitutes. With luck and determination, the pair was able to shoot two more goals and sealed the game in 4-3 victory.
It will be a win for Arsenal against the hosting team, Stoke City.
Last season might have been harsh for Arsenal. Many of the club supporters protested and demanded him to resign as the head coach. But the next series of games will potentially prove why Wenger deserves more credit as the Gunners’ manager.
