Photos: Gabriel battling Giroud as Arsenal squad trains for Saturday
The Arsenal squad has held its final preparations ahead of Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Stoke City.
Arsene Wenger’s side will have the opportunity to reclaim top spot – for a brief period at least – as they play Mark Hughes’ side a day before league leaders Chelsea’s home clash against West Brom.
The Gunners have maintained a perfect record against the Potters ever since their promotion into the top flight in 2008.
And ahead of kick-off at the Emirates stadium on Saturday, Arsenal appear be putting in all the efforts necessary to keep that run going.
Here were a few photos from Friday’s training session at London Colney, including an interesting snapshot of the team working on set-pieces.
