Arsenal vs Stoke Prediction

Arsenal vs Stoke City Week 5 EPLSince losing in a shock opening date defeat to Aston Villa, Arsenal has won three on a trot. Mesut Ozil demonstrated to fans his creative talents in his first EPL match when Arsenal beat Sunderland 3-1 last week. He looks to be a great signing for Arsenal. Naturally, Stoke will need to keep Ozil quiet to be any chance.

Stoke has surprised this year. As mentioned in the week 5 preview, they are one of the teams considered to be in contention for relegation. However, they have notched up seven of a possible twelve points this season. They drew with Manchester City last week and they were not clearly outmatched. Stoke has moved away from negative soccer this year, they are passing the ball more and have more of an attacking strategy.

Stoke defender Marc Wilson gives his side a good chance of causing an upset when they travel to Emirates Stadium. The side is going into the match with confidence and they will to give it a real go. The Stoke team understand the task will be difficult but believe they have the players to cause Arsenal problems. Stoke is prepared to give Arsenal the respect they deserve. The side has said they will be solid, work hard and not be too open. To defeat Arsenal, Stoke needs to be more ruthless in front of goal.

You can’t deny winning form, so I am tipping Arsenal to win this match 2-0. Stoke has a bit of a hoodoo at Arsenal. They have failed to get a result on five previous visits to Arsenal’s home ground.
