Stoke beat Arsenal 2-1 in the Premiership fixture last season – can the Potters do the same in the FA Cup on Sunday? Gavin Beech you his tip and all the best odds.

Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is facing up to six weeks out with the knee injury he suffered on international duty.

The Ghanaian, who had only just recovered from a hamstring problem, damaged his knee during training for the African Nations Cup.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to have the key midfielder available again within a month, but admits his recovery could take longer.

Ancelotti told the club’s official website: “He had a tear in the meniscus, and he has to stay out for four to six weeks. I hope four.”

“In January, Essien was not here, he was at the African Cup.

“Maybe we lose him for one month, it is not good news but I think that we will do a good job again.”
