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.
