Sunderland continue weak throughout last season and now is the red lantern Premier League with two points after the first nine games, the only team without a win. Thus, as expected, ‘Black Cats’ come after a tough week in which he suffered two defeats in the Italian style 0-1 with West Ham, in the latest step of the championship and still 0-1, but front of Southampton, in a match of the round EFL Cup. The fact that playing at home is not an advantage because this posture posture helped her to collect a single point. Interestingly, Sunderland managed to win only once in the last 25 direct matches against Arsenal.
Info lot: Sebastian Larsson, Fabio Borini, Kirchoff, Mannoni, januzaj, Denayer and Le Cattermole are unavailable for this game.
Arsenal is in second place, on equal points with leader Manchester City, but has a weaker goal difference. Arsene Wenger’s band comes after a semiesec, a draw on the ‘Emirates’, 0-0 with Middlesbrough, and coming amid the fatigue of players that have evolved in groups UCL, and in the championship. However, in terms of games on foreign land, Arsenal is one of the two teams unsurpassed in the role of guest band, having collected 10 points from 12 possible, and a goal, 8-2.
Info lot: Per Mertesacker, Welbeck, Akpom and Lucas Perez are injured and suspended Granit Xhaka, while Cazorla and Ramsey are uncertain.
Sunderland (4-5-1): Pickford – Manquillo – Kone – O’Shea – Aanholt – Watmore – Pienaar – Ndong – Rodwell – Khazri – Defoe
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Cech – Bellerin – mussaf – Koscielny – Monreal – Elneny – Coquelin – Walcott – Ozil – Chamberlain – Sanchez
Obviously Arsenal leave the first chance with the opportunity to tick second win in the last four days because ‘Gunners’ qualified EFL Cup quarterfinals after 2-0 Reading the middle of this week. Altogether, Sunderland – Arsenal match was locked in 8 of the last 10 matches played against Arsenal, the ‘Stadium of Light’, evidence that these games have scored more than two goals. I think Sanchez and colleagues the opportunity to tick off another success and could pass the first position, taking advantage of a potential misstep of those at City.
