Arsenal are still top of the Barclays Premier League after drawing 3-3 at Liverpool on Wednesday. They were leading late on but had their advantage at the top of the Premier League cut after Joe Allen's late equaliser gave Liverpool a fortunate point.
Olivier Giroud's second-half strike - his second of the night and 18th of the season - looked to have put the Gunners on course for a crucial victory, but substitute Allen rewarded the hosts for a display bursting with energy and spirit with a low 90th-minute finish.
Roberto Firmino twice gave Liverpool the lead in the first half, the second a spectacular 20-yard drive, but Arsenal took advantage of poor defending from J¸rgen Klopp's side to level through Aaron Ramsey and Giroud.
The Gunners, though, will be determined to win at the Britannia Stadium; not only are points needed in the race to become Premier League champions but their record at Stoke in the competition is poor.
