After a wobbly start at the beginning of the season, and very bad matches played in the last month, it seems that Arsenal team somehow manages to maintain and can finally move towards the top of the table.
There must not be ignored that this is a rough time for Wenger and all these turbulent results were normal and that would mean thah team is close to three wins in a row. Somehow it’s nice to work against Southampton, but are difficult to reach the goal. A match against WBA nothing to the story, as they managed to break the defense and give that one goal. Infamously passed from Manchester, but quite substantial part of it had bugs all over the Arsenal defense. Wenger just know that if you do not record a victory in this match to be greater pressure and greater lift on his shoulders, so this is a fantastic opportunity for increasing the dose of confidence in the team.
Rival or away team Stoke, had a very difficult schedule in the very last five games, where in the last two games have failures. Team Stoke will not rush into this match on the net, because they will not be able to play against the team after that likes to keep the ball in the legs. It could Stoke could do a goal from a free kick or a corner, just do not know how many of them have in general as they are by me without those chances in this match.
In fact, I expect that team Arsenal in this game totally dominate the middle of that earlier period in which details an advantage. If they manage to break through and be lucky that they do not need 10 shots to score one goal, will easily win this match.
