Sunderland V Arsenal
Stadium of light
11th May 2008
Sunderland face Arsenal in their last competitive game at the Stadium of Light this season. With both sides playing for pride the result is immaterial as Roy Keane men are playing for the Sunderland futures, Anyone of them could find themselves out the door in the summer if they fail to impress.
Sunderland Team News:
Roy Keane might make wholesale changes after his sides unconvincing display at Bolton.
Jonny Evans is set to make his last loan appearance before returning to Man Utd.
Sunderland are without Phil Bardsley, Dickson Etuhu, and Darren Ward.
Player to watch: Kenwyne Jones
Kenwyne will be a handful for the Gunner`s back four. If Chopra is upfront with him I think we will cause them problems.
Arsenal Team News:
Alexandra Hleb is suspended and Wenger is expected to field some youth players as Van Persie, Diaby, Almunia, Da Silva, and Rosicky are injured.
Player to watch: Emmanuel Adebayor
Arsenals top scorer will be looking to add to his tally at the Stadium of Light.
