Mark Hughes goes into the record book after he beats Arsenal once again
Hughes becomes the first ever manager to beat the Gunners with four different teams after Stoke's 1-0 victory at the Britannia
Mark Hughes had endured a frustrating start to his career at Stoke City with the Potters amassing their fewest points total after 27 games since 2008/09 but their 1-0 win against Arsenal has giving him more than one reason to be happy.
Stoke are now up to twelfth in the league, six points clear of the relegation zone, but for Hughes the win has even more importance, as now he is the first manager to defeat the Gunners in the Premier League with four different teams.
Hughes had previously beaten the club in the division with Manchester City (twice), Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers.
Alongside Hughes, only Kenny Dalglish (Blackburn, Liverpool and Newcastle) and Graeme Souness (also with Blackburn, Liverpool, Newcastle) have been victorious against Arsenal with three different teams in the Premier League.
Seven managers have faced the Gunners with at least four different teams in the division - Roy Hodgson, Steve Bruce, Souness, Ron Atkinson, Sam Allardyce, Hughes and Harry Redknapp.
Hughes' Premier League managerial wins against Arsenal:
31 March 2012 QPR 2 Arsenal 1
12 Sept 2009 Man City 4 Arsenal 2
22 Nov 2008 Man City 3 Arsenal 0
25 Feb 2006 Blackburn 1 Arsenal 0
1 March 2014 Stoke 1 Arsenal 0
