Half-time: Stoke 0 Arsenal 0. A good save from Szczesny to deny Whelan's long-range effort shortly before the break, but that's been the only real highlight of a fairly dull 45 minutes.

Last few predictions. On email, Thomas Armitage (aged nine) goes for a 3-1 away win; Anish Parekh fancies Arsenal to triumph 3-0; and on Twitter, @hasnain_munir11 goes for 3-1 to the Gunners. No love for Stoke out there?
Carl Fletcher aka @carlyfletch on Twitter says: 'wanting & hoping for an Arsenal win. 2-1 to the Gunners in a nervy encounter. Giroud and Cazorla on the scoresheet.'
Stoke are a 4/1 shot with Sky Bet to claim victory today, with Arsenal 7/10 favourites and the draw priced up at 13/5. Here's some Price Boosts - Peter Crouch and Santi Cazorla are both 9/1 to score the first goal, while a 1-0 Stoke victory is 14/1 and a 2-0 Gunners triumph is 15/2.
Here's Abu Kalad on email: 'Abz from London here. Many people have doubted Arsenal throughout the season and even after Xmas, people were questioning our credentials. I hope today we can go out and show why we are title contenders! Arsenal 3-1 and Ozil putting in a good shift!'
First feedback of the day comes from Kevin Dineen on email: 'This game makes me really nervous, but I also believe that the boys know and understand that they need to start March off on the forward foot. Interesting to see Ozil on the bench. A little extra rest for the boy, and hopefully we will see some sizzling form from him today. The boys will be up for it, but so will Stoke. I think this will be a nervy game, with Arsenal winning 2-1 - and I would not be surprised if there was a red card today.'
