Stoke pair back for Gunners clash

Stoke will bid to extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches in all competitions when they face title-chasing Arsenal at the Britannia Stadium tomorrow evening.

They will have both Abdoulaye Faye and Andy Wilkinson back from suspensions for a clash with a club Stoke have beaten on their last two visits to the Potteries, the most recent being the 3-1 FA Cup fourth-round victory for Tony Pulis’ men last month.

Stoke are waiting on fitness checks for Matthew Etherington (knee) and Danny Higginbotham (back) before naming their side.

Provisional squad: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Whitehead, Abdoulaye Faye, Shawcross, Huth, Collins, Lawrence, Pugh, Whelan, Diao, Tuncay, Delap, Sidibe, Fuller, Kitson, Higginbotham, Simonsen, Beattie, Davies, Amdy Faye.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
