​Hughes wary for Stoke as they face in-form Arsenal

Stoke boss Mark Hughes admits the Potters have not got the best timing as they look to end a 35 year run without a victory away to in-form Arsenal.

"We are going into the game on Saturday, against one of the top teams, full of confidence, and we are in the best place we could be in," he said.

"We don't have a great record there and we would love to change that at the weekend. It will be tough but we are in a good place.

"We had a similar record at Old Trafford and we went there, played well and earned a point. Now it's time we did something at Arsenal.

"Arsenal, as a team, look in good shape and whilst we have a lot of confidence, given their form too, it isn't a good time to play them.

"It's important for us to give ourselves an opportunity to get something out of the game, we need to stay in the match and frustrate them."
