Potters to check on Odemwingie fitness

Stoke will check on the condition of Peter Odemwingie ahead of Saturday's BPL home clash with Arsenal after he sustained a calf problem.

Referee Neil Swarbrick speaks with Peter Odemwingi

Fellow Potters forward Jon Walters has missed a couple of days of training this week due to illness but is expected to be available, and on-loan Manchester City striker John Guidetti is eligible once again after sitting out last weekend's defeat at his parent club.

Defender Robert Huth, who last played for the Stoke first team in November and has been recovering from knee surgery, successfully came through 45 minutes of a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday but is not yet ready for a competitive return. On-loan Liverpool winger Oussama Assaidi (knee) remains sidelined.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Cameron, Muniesa, Shotton, Whelan, Adam, Palacios, Ireland, Nzonzi, Arnautovic, Walters, Crouch, Odemwingie, Wilkinson, Etherington, Guidetti.
