Arsene Wenger’s side face Stoke later today looking to build on last weekend’s convincing 4-1 win over Sunderland last time out.
The Gunners enjoyed a rare midweek rest with no European game to distract them although Arsene Wenger’s decision to give his players a deserved two –day break has come in for criticism from some parts of the media.
Speaking ahead of the clash with the Potters, Wenger described the decision to question the break as incredible, telling reporters “I don’t see why that’s suddenly a problem,” he said. “We have played without a break since December, we don’t have to justify that, it’s unbelievable.
“We are in a society where everyone wants to control everything. I don’t understand this at all. We came out of a heavy schedule. We had two days off, that’s all.
“Sometimes it’s not only physical, it’s mental, you’re under pressure all the time, there’s nothing unusual there.”
Mesut Ozil is one such player Wenger will hope to have benefitted from the break. The German has been out of sorts in recent weeks, his penalty miss against Bayern Munich proving costly. The midfielder sat out the game with Sunderland but is poised to return this weekend.
Under-pressure Oliver Giroud is another that will have benefitted from the break. The striker has been in the press recently for the wrong reasons after an alleged late night dalliance put his personal life in the headlines.
The French International responded to a couple of abject performances with 2 goals last time out and looks set to keep his place as a result.
Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibb are both struggling to be fit for the game meaning that fit-again club captain Thomas Vermaelen could feature at left back. Aaron Ramsey will once again be missing for the Gunners.
Stoke have been strong at home this season picking up 21 of their 27 points in front of their own fans however they have won just one of their last 10 games and are currently 15th in the table, just three points from safety.
Mark Hughes will be without on-loan Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi due to a knee injury but defender Robert Huth could feature as a substitute after being absent for three months due to a knee issue.
Peter Crouch has been in impressive form in recent weeks scoring four goals in his last 6 games and the former Spurs man will be keen to add to his tally against Arsenal, a team he boasts a good scoring record against with 7 premier league career goals.
