LONDON -- Three points on Arsenal's 3-1 win over Stoke as a forced substitution saw Hector Bellerin arrive and change the game against Stoke.

1. Arsenal winning when subpar

For all Arsenal's problems away at Stoke, they've now won all nine matches against the Potters at the Emirates. Although they went behind to Charlie Adam's penalty, the Gunners took control in the second half and go top by virtue of goals scored.

The FC crew explain why they're unconvinced by the odds-makers' prediction for Manchester United's clash against Tottenham.

Here are the latest stories for Friday.

MAN UNITEDJose Mourinho has challenged Wayne Rooney to score more goals for Manchester United after saying only Zlatan Ibrahimovic is living up to expectations with his strike-rate this season.

Arsenal's selection dilemma vs. Stoke as Xhaka, Perez stake their claims

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Arsenal are the real deal.

Arsenal's last two wins have been emphatic, scoring nine goals in total away from home, and in turn they've given Arsene Wenger a problem.

The Frenchman made six changes from the team that beat West Ham 5-1 for the midweek game against FC Basel in the Champions League. The Gunners showcased the fact this is a squad with some real depth by swatting aside the Swiss champions 4-1.

So successful rotation has given Wenger the "problem" most managers would like to have: a surplus of good players. With...

Are Alexis Sanchez's dogs the key to him staying? Arsenal fans hope so

Arsenal fans are hoping to convince Alexis Sanchez to stay at Arsenal -- by creating a banner for his dogs at the Emirates.

The star striker's love for his two golden retrievers, Atom and Humber, has taken on a life of its own on social media as Sanchez has a habit of posting videos and photos of them on his Instagram account.

And since Arsenal have yet to table a contract offer good enough to convince the Chilean to commit his long-term future to the club, one supporter group is trying to appeal...

Rio Ferdinand tells ESPN FC that Manchester United's top four hopes are not over yet.

Defeat for Manchester United in Sunday's clash with Tottenham would not only all-but end their slim title hopes, their chances of finishing in the top four would be in serious jeopardy. 

Losing to Mauricio Pochettino's men would send Jose Mourinho's side nine points adrift of Spurs, who will start the game fifth. 

Elsewhere, rampant Chelsea host high-flying West Brom while troubled West Ham, hammered 5-1 against Arsenal last week, visit Anfield with Liverpool still reeling from last Sunday's...
