Sanchez, Giroud send Arsenal up to fifth

Ozil My future? Top four is all that matters

Ozil My future? Top four is all that matters

The Gunners, though, have picked up just one win in eight previous Premier League trips to Staffordshire and boss Arsene Wenger is wary of the threat that lies ahead. Out on the wing back positions we have Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain, both of which are performing to a very good standard in their new position, especially the Ox.

Personally I can't see Arsenal wanting to let Bellerin go anytime soon and so it's likely the Gunners will have to try and find space for both the Ox and Bellerin, especially as the Ox is now proving he's worth every minute he plays at the moment. Stoke are now regular participants in the Premier League for years, and that means that anybody who goes there is in trouble.

"All the games the same thing. we saw our games since the beginning of the season, many games where we've had the same feeling". Let's keep the focus on the way we want to play, on our team spirit.

Long-term absentees Ibrahim Afellay and Stephen Ireland remain out injured but Saido Berahino could be involved after being on the sidelines with illness recently.

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

"He scores important goals".

With two games to play, 13th-placed Stoke could still finish as high as eighth in the standings, which would be their highest finish in English football since 1975.

Scholar: Choices ahead after order to arrest Amtrak engineer
The Bartlett native blamed for crashing an Amtrak that killed eight people and injured hundreds more will now face charges. The NTSB said it found no evidence that Bostian was impaired or using a cellphone during the Washington-to-New York run.

The Chilean scored at Southampton to take his Premier League goal tally for the season to 20, and 14 of those have been in away games.

Prior to the change, Wenger had always chosen to operate with four at the back, and former Gunner Keown claims that teams had figured out how to play against Wenger's side.

Arsene Wenger insists he never questioned the character of his Arsenal side as they continued their turnaround with a vital win at Southampton.

Today: Manchester City v Leicester City (1:30pm); Bournemouth v Burnley; Middlesbrough v Southampton; Sunderland v Swansea City; Stoke City v Arsenal (6:30pm).

In his latest column, Charlie Nicholas fears Arsenal will blow their top-four chances with a slip-up at Stoke.

It's a nice game for Arsenal, they need a win and I expect them to do just that.

"You have to assess how the game is going, whether that team is on top at the moment or whether to push on or not".
