Disappointingly (for Tottenham fans) the Arsenal train has defied critics and stayed pretty much stayed on the tracks this season, and lets be honest we are just a few months away from the end of the season now. The 'big' games in March await the Gooners after this 'hors d'oeuvres', a game they surely have to win if they are going to keep the league challenge alive.

Stoke also have a big challenge ahead in March, with four crunch matches against teams in the lower half of the league to come after this tie against Arsenal. Home wins against Chelsea and Man United have to be the high points of the season for Stoke, and they were perhaps a tad unlucky not to get a draw with Man City last week but sh*t happens when you are struggling so Sparky will have to pick up his troops to fight another difficult encounter.

This will be a comfortable win for Arsenal, rather annoyingly they have proved me right every time I've backed them this season. Stoke 1 Arsenal 3.

As usual with Stoke games i expect a rough encounter and with Sparky at the helm trying to keep out of the relegation zone i expect a bit more football rather than plain thuggery!

3-1 Arsenal

messy first half by both teams , with Stoke doing a good job preventing Arsenal from getting their passing game together!
Wilshere still not doing it for me and Rosicky has to stop foolishly turning the ball over!
Hopefully Wenger see's what needs to be done and they com out with a bit more sharpness,but this game got draw written all over based on that first half!

don't know what this ref is doing ,but how Giroud hasn't come off that pitch with a broken leg yet is beyond me! ON two separate occasions a stoke player has stomped on his leg while he was on the ground. Absolutely disgusting behavior and the Stoke of old has reemerged under Hughes!

poor effort form Arsenal today! Not sure why Ox wasn't on from the start! The miss from Sanogo was shocking ! Any player that puts on an Arsenal shirt under Wenger that chance should be training pitch stuff!
This could be the start of that plunge is aid would take place at this point in the season!
Ox was the only help we got off the bench today no other player made a similar impact and for me that is the difference between title contenders and title pretenders!

A mare of a result for Arsenal, didn't see the game but the pundits who did watch it described it as a "flat" performance by the Gunners. This was always a 'must win' game for Arsenal because things aren't going to get easier this month in terms of the opposition awaiting them. I guess Wenger is hoping for a favour from Southampton to keep his team in contention tonight. I wouldn't say this is the fatal blow that puts Arsenal out of contention for the title, they are a team that can 'play up' when faced with the 'big boys' rather than a workman like side like Stoke.

Stoke claim another scalp, how the f*ck do they do it? Why is it Arsenal have a problem with them? I have to give Sparky credit, I have said his team will go down but six points clear of the relegation zone gives him a decent buffer. The games they face in the rest of this month are more important than this one, as they are against relegation rivals, but a win against Arsenal will undoubtedly give the club a massive boost.
