Carl Jenkinson misses Arsenal's match against Stoke with the knee problem he picked up against Marseille in the Champions League in midweek.

He will be out for a fortnight, as will Kieran Gibbs with an injury to his stomach muscles.

Thomas Vermaelen is back in full training and could be available in 10 days to two weeks, while Abou Diaby is also two weeks away from a return.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis will check on the condition of Jermaine Pennant ahead of the trip south.

Pennant has been experiencing some trouble with his hamstring and did not feature in the Potters' Europa League victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday night.

Jonathan Woodgate also missed that game as he is not part of Pulis' European squad and will come back into contention if he is fit, while Danny Higginbotham - out since April with a knee injury - may be involved as well after playing for the reserves this week.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Song, Frimpong, Ramsey, Arteta, Gervinho, Van Persie, Walcott, Fabianski, Park, A Santos, Benayoun, Djourou, Rosicky, Arshavin, Chamakh, Squillaci.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Nash, Wilkinson, Shotton, Wilson, Higginbotham, Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Woodgate, Diao, Arismendi, Delap, Whitehead, Whelan, Etherington, Pennant, Walters, Crouch, Palacios, Jerome, Jones.
