Arsenal have responded to recent disappointments with back-to-back 1-0 victories to climb up the Premier League table but face their annual dreaded visit to Stoke City this weekend.
The Potters have so often been the opposition that Arsenal have folded against with a 1-0 defeat last season effectively putting an end to their title challenge.

Those who have turned on Wenger will surely be predicting another disappointing afternoon, pointing to the evidence that the problems run much deeper at Arsenal and cannot be masked by a couple of slender 1-0 victories.
Wenger has made his mistakes but has the opportunity to rectify some at least when the transfer window re-opens in under a month’s time.
Here we have identified five issues Arsenal should look to resolve, either by signing new players or otherwise next month.
