Carragher backs Arsenal to secure three points over Stoke this weekend.


Jamie Carragher backs Arsenal to win at home against Stoke City.

The Gunners face Stoke City at the Emirates on Sunday and after a 3-2 defeat at the Britannia back in December [6th to be precise], Arsene Wenger's side will definitely want to prevent that sort of result and stuttering performance from taking place this weekend.

Arsenal got off to a slow start which saw Stoke score an early goal by Peter Crouch in the first minute and were three goals down at half-time at Stoke.

However, Carragher doesn’t think that'll be the case at north London this weekend and believes the fine form Arsenal have at home over Stoke will continue when they host Mark Hughes' side.

"Stoke away is notoriously difficult for Arsenal, but they’ve not had similar problems at home," said Jamie Carragher.

"They've won all six Premier League games against Stoke at the Emirates Stadium.

"Arsenal are just a different proposition at home, they find it difficult with those types of games away from home, but you must say they are favoured at the Emirates on a big, open pitch.

"But Stoke have had some good away days, they’ve beaten Man City, Tottenham and Everton, plus Mark Hughes has been a Premier League manager for a long time now and always makes it difficult for the opposition. But it’s a game you expect Arsenal to win."
