    Remember this?

    I didn’t know a statue of a legend in front of the Emirates can come alive to score a last minute winner…

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    With Mesut Ozil not living up to his fantasy football expectations of late, we are turning to the diminutive Santi Cazorla to help the Gunners keep the pressure on the top of the Premier League.

    Arsenal vs. Sunderland: An Alternative Preview

    Arsenal have lost just one of their last 20 Barclays Premier League games against Sunderland (W12 D7 L1).

    Sunderland have not won away at Arsenal in the league since November 1983, losing 10 of the 14 visits since.

    Despite Sunderland not scoring in four of the last five visits to the Emirates Stadium, the Black Cats have taken points three times in those encounters with 0-0 draws.

    Mesut Ӧzil made his debut in the reverse fixture earlier this season and set up Olivier Giroud’s opening goal.

    Sunderland have gone six on the road without defeat in the Premier League (W3 D3 L0) - this after winning just one point in their eight PL away games (D1 L7) prior to this run.

    Adam Johnson has scored or assisted eight goals in six PL apps so far in 2014, one more than he was involved in over 2013 as a whole (seven in 35 apps).

    The Gunners have lost just one of their last 17 Premier League games in the month of February (W13 D3 L1).

    Arsenal have not conceded a Premier League goal at the Emirates Stadium for seven hours and 36 minutes.

    All five of Alex Oxlade Chamberlain’s Premier League goals and all five of his Premier League assists have come at the Emirates Stadium.

    Sunderland have conceded the highest number of goals following crosses in the Premier League this season (12).
