STOKE, September 9-Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri has spoken of the prospect of facing Arsenal this weekend, and feels optimistic about his side’s chances.

The former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan star admitted he is looking to help the Potters gain their first win of the season when they head to the Emirates Stadium to face the Gunners on Saturday.

“It will be a difficult game for us at Arsenal on Saturday, but it is one that we are looking forward to and one we are positive about,” he told Stoke’s official website.

“It has been nice to link back up with my international team-mates – it came at a good time as I was able to see my friends and family back in Switzerland.

“I am ready to get back to action with Stoke City now though and hopefully pick up a positive result on Saturday. We want to get at least a point from the game.”

Stoke have not lost at the Gunners since February 2010 and beat Arsenal 3-2 in the reverse fixture last season.
