Arsenal have top four in their sights, but Stoke have always enjoyed beating the Gunners and will relish the chance to scupper their Champions League qualification hopes.

" Overall, I must say as well that they have had good teams".

Oxlade-Chamberlain has impressed in the position ever since Arsene Wenger switched to a 3-4-2-1 formation for the 2-1 away victory against Middlesbrough last month.

It was a pleasing night for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose side have hit form at the right time, following Sunday's 2-0 victory over top-four rivals Manchester United.

They make a bright start, hover around the top two until Christmas and prompt claims that "this will finally be their year", before falling off a cliff once the season passes its halfway stage.

Wenger is likely to be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Stoke after he left the field in the first half with a hamstring problem.

Wenger has called the shots at the north London club since he joined in 1996 and said he had no interest in having his authority diminished, even as his future remains mired in uncertainty and the fans restless. He has played an instrumental role in recent wins over Manchester United and Manchester City in the Premier League and FA Cup semi-finals respectively.
