Walcott, Bellerin and more: Arsenal stars gear up for Stoke City clash

A handful of Arsenal players took to social media in the build-up to Saturday's clash with Stoke at The Emirates

Theo Walcott was among the Arsenal players to take to social media in the build-up to the Gunners’ Premier League clash with Stoke City at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners host the Potters looking to maintain their winning ways in the top flight after their 1-0 win at Newcastle United before the international break.

Arsene Wenger’s men head into the game in sixth place in the Premier League table after having taken seven points from their opening four top-flight games.

And the Arsenal squad were clearly excited by the return of Premier League action this weekend, as they used their personal Instagram accounts to rally their troops in the build-up to Saturday’s clash in north London.

Theo Walcott is one of the first players to post a picture from training on Friday:
