Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson insists they can handle the physical test posed by Stoke City this weekend.

Jenkinson insists Arsene Wenger's men will stand up and be counted.

"I think it is fair to say that most teams struggle with the physical side that Stoke have," Jenkinson told Arsenal Player.

"It is something we have to be aware of and it is no surprise anymore, everybody knows how Stoke play.

"They are a big, strong and physical side, but we are prepared for that, know what is coming and just have to deal with it as best as we can."
