Stoke City vs Arsenal – May 8, 2011

The English Premier League match between Stoke City and Arsenal kicks off on May 8, 2011 at Britannia Stadium. As Stoke City are just 1 week away to face Manchester City for the finals of FA Cup Wembley, they won’t be taking the visit of the Gunners lightly and will play a strong side with several players still out to prove that they’re worthy of a Final appearance.
The pre-match build-up has been dominated by the ongoing saga of that tackle in the same fixture last year. Ramsey’s bad leg break was sad for the lad, but it was only an accident and it’s now well past the time to move on. Arsene Wenger’s refusal to insist that it’s pushed out of the headlines is typical of a man that still seems to have a blinkered view of the mighty Potters that everyone else has long since moved away from and now even appears to be rapidly losing the support of the London-centric media.

Arsenal’s Captain Cesc Febregas is still facing injury and won’t be available in this match and also, mid-fielder Samir Nasri  is suffering from hamstring injury, thus he is not playing either.
