Three key statistics ahead of Arsenal versus Stoke

After topping their Champions League group in midweek Arsenal return to Premier League action at home against a massively improving Stoke City side.

The Potters are on a run of just one defeat in nine games, putting aside early relegation fears to climb into the top half of the table.

But they face a tough ask going to the Emirates against an Arsenal side who have a very good record against them.

Here are three key stats ahead of the game:

1. Arsenal have won 14 home games against Stoke in a row

There are very few Premier League rivalries as one sided as this one, with Arsenal holding a 14 match winning streak over the Potters in all competitions at home.

The Gunners have also won all eight Premier League fixtures they have played against Stoke at home, winning 2-0 last season thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.

Stoke will have to turn around a very unfavourable record if they want to come away with any points.
