Stoke City v Arsenal: Mark Hughes can become the first manager to beat the Gunners with four different Premier League teams
Hughes has defeated Arsenal as manager in the division with three teams
Mark Hughes has endured a frustrating start to his career at Stoke City, the Potters languishing in 15th place with 27 points, their fewest total at this stage since 2008/09.
But here is one ray of light for Hughes in what has been a rather woeful season - should his team defeat Arsenal this weekend he can set a new record, becoming 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.
