Arsenal are still in search of their first home victory this season and will face Stoke City on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium.
The North Londoners have been far from convincing in the first four PL games and will hope to step up big time against the Potters.
As far as Arsenal’s team news is concerned, German international Per Mertesacker missed the last two PL games because of illness. Expect the World Cup winner to return and form a central defensive partnership with Laurent Koscielny in the starting XI vs Stoke.
Mesut Ozil missed the last league game against Newcastle United with a minor knee injury and the record signing will probably be back in the starting XI as well.
England international Theo Walcott was given the nod to start versus the magpies but once again he failed to impress. French star Olivier Giroud may replace Walcott in the starting lineup.
Here is Arsenal’s probable XI vs Stoke City.
