Stoke City v Arsenal (Saturday, 3pm)
Arsenal have recovered more points from losing positions than any other team in the top flight this season (19). Four of the last five meetings between Stoke and Arsenal in all competitions have ended with a 3-1 scoreline. Stoke have won three of their last four home matches in all competitions against Arsenal.

The Potters have scored the highest percentage of goals from set pieces in the Premier League (63%), while the Gunners have netted the lowest proportion (13%). 38% of the goals Stoke have scored have been netted from headers, the highest proportion in the Premier League. Arsenal have conceded just five headed goals, the joint-fewest in the top flight.

Peter Crouch has scored six Premier League goals against Arsenal; he's only netted more against Blackburn (eight) in the competition. Robin van Persie has fired in 63 shots on target from inside the penalty area, two more than the entire Stoke team.
