Introducing another Premier League weekend is Sunderland versus Arsenal at the Stadium of Light. Placed on Sky’s Saturday lunchtime plinth, a struggling Sunderland host an Arsenal side who will be hoping to assign their poor display against Middlesbrough last weekend to the annals of history.
The Black Cats are doing their normal thing. Failing abysmally before Christmas – they have two points from nine games – before producing some sort of Hollywood-esque great escape. David Moyes could yet be the fall guy for Sunderland, as he continues to watch his side produce relegation worthy performances.
Their visitors today have been one of Europe’s form sides over the past few weeks. With Arsene Wenger finally having found a cocktail to bring the best out of his most gifted players, their attacking play has been as exciting as their defensive play has been reassuring.
Everything about this fixture points to a rather one-sided match, but we all know about Arsenal’s tendency to let such form slip…
