Arsenal face Stoke City in the English Premier League this afternoon looking to pick up their fourth successive wins in all competitions.
It’s unarguably a more important clash for Paul Lambert’s visiting Potters side, but Gunners supporters will be hoping to secure all three points and take momentum into Thursday’s big UEFA Europa League clash.
Arsene Wenger has named his starting eleven for the encounter and fans are already taking issue with his decision to start the likes of Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck was in lethal form during their recent clash with AC Milan, scoring twice against the Italian giants, but hasn’t netted in the Premier League since a double at home to Bournemouth way back in September.
Is Wenger resting Mkhitaryan ahead of their clash with CSKA Moscow, or perhaps giving Welbeck match time ahead of that one?
Regardless, fans are baffled and not happy with the England international starting.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts ahead of kick-off…
How the hell does Welbeck still manage to start? Don’t ruin my Easter you idiots https://t.co/Nau9Sn3MkI

Welbeck in place of Mkhitariyan. Why? ?

Aubameyang must be buzzing to have a supply line containing Welbeck and ElNeny.
