How to watch Arsenal vs. Stoke City

Jese Rodriguez, who is on loan from Paris Saint Germain, might be the game-changer. Hughes confirmed that the Belgian teenager has suffered a thigh problem but has no other pressing injury concerns, with Ibrahim Affellay and Stephen Ireland the only other absentees.

Arsenal offered little going forward and looked very shaky at the back as a number of players were played out of position, and the damaging early defeat was always going to upset the supporters who made their way up from London.

Hughes added: "We are probably at a point when people can't take liberties or question what we are doing".

"Whether Stoke can probe them further remains to be seen". But then you have to remember that Wenger is the one that picks the team, trains them, gives then their tactics and team talks and so the buck must stop with him.

Stoke City have lost only one of their last seven home matches against Arsenal (W3 D3 L1).

"We are hoping to involve all the signings we've brought in over the summer on Saturday".

"We were unlucky. I think we scored a regular goal that was given offside and it wasn't offside".

"If the window stopped now we would be stronger than when it started".

Think you can do better than Lawro?

"We knew it was important in this type of game not to make a defensive mistake, and after halftime straight away we come out and we are too sluggish on defending and pay for it", Wenger told BT Sport.

"You have to say he put a shift in too".

Arsenal is a strong team in the Premier League.

Arsenal were 4-1 winners against Stoke at The Britannia back in May to win their first Premier League game at the ground since 2010.

The Gunners could win seven consecutive league fixtures for the first time since an eight-match streak from February to April 2015.
