Winger dilemma for Pulis
Stoke will make a decision on Jermaine Pennant ahead of the game against Arsenal but Andy Wilkinson is definitely out.
Pennant missed the 3-0 defeat against Newcastle last weekend after suffering with a virus in the lead up to the game and the after effects could keep him out again. The winger has trained all week but boss Tony Pulis says he has not looked as sharp as normal and has hinted he could leave him out for the visit of Arsene Wenger's men. Meanwhile, Wilkinson is definitely out with a hamstring injury and the Potters are still waiting to discover if the defender will be missing for the remainder of the season. Elsewhere, Pulis has no fresh injury worries as Stoke look to finish the season on a high to force their way into the top 10.
