Charlie Nicholas provides his Premier League tips

The Gunners could win successive top-flight games at Stoke for the first time since 1969.

Alexis Sanchez is not yet fit to play, but Shkodran Mustafi is available for Arsenal and may assume a place in the back three after a nervous performance from Rob Holding against Leicester, while Francis Coquelin is set to join the squad. He is unlikely to start in this game since he has just arrived but he might make an impact appearance from the bench.

We kicked off the new season with a thrilling 4-3 comeback victory over Leicester City at the Emirates last Friday night to ensure it was a winning start to the 2017/18 campaign.

After playing two left-backs in in a back three in the opening game of the English Premier League season, Arsene Wenger will have the luxury of actually selecting centre-backs to do the job when Arsenal play Stoke City on Saturday.

"But in this case, I think I prioritise the fact that he will be useful on the sporting side".

It would be good to hear the Stoke fans booing once Arsenal go into a quick 1-0 lead and the fans get on the managers back, but obviously the Arsenal fans wouldn't do that, would they?

In his exclusive Sportinglife.com column, Charlie Nicholas provides his predictions for this weekend's Premier League action, including a 100/1 RAB.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "I don't believe in bogey teams too much". This will not be an easy game for the home team but I expect them to put up a good fight against one of the best teams in the Premier League. They will be looking to win their opening two games to a Premier League season for the first time since 2009-10.

But after a strong display against Manchester City in last season's semi-final, he missed out on the final due to injury following a tackle with Everton's Enner Valencia on the last day of the Premier League season. It's a side of his game Wenger was aware of.

Other than Bruno Martins Indi, Stoke have only brought in free transfers and loan players during the transfer window.

Hector Bellerin combined with Giroud to open the scoring before Mesut Ozil latched onto a pass from Sanchez to make it two.

Probability of away win: 56%.
