Arsenal V Sunderland

Sunderland head to London hoping to end Arsenal`s unbeaten run which is now 14 games.

It`s a game that we aren`t expected to win but it would be great to pull off a miracle and beat them.

Saying that a draw would be a good result from an inform Arsenal team.

Arsenal Team News:

Eduardo, Jens Lehmann, William Gallas, Tomas Rosicky and Alex Song are out.

Player to watch: Cesc Fabregas

He is in my opinion one of the best midfielders in the country. He is a skilful player who is very creative and hardworking. We will have to keep him quite to get something out of the game.

Sunderland Team News:

Dean Whitehead, Carlos Edwards, Russell Anderson, Stan Varga, Andrew Cole and Kieran Richardson are all out injured.

Dickson Euthu is back after his suspension.

Roy Keane is expected to name a side and formation similar to the one he used against Man United.

Player to watch: Craig Gordon

If we are to get something out of the game against Arsenal he will have to be on top of his game to stop the free scoring Gunners.

Match Facts & Stats

Last time at Highbury we were beaten by three goals to one Van Persie scored their first before Henry doubled their lead. Stubbs grabbed a goal back for the lads before Henry finished us of with their third.

In our last six league games against Arsenal in London we have Won 0, Draw 1 and Lost 5

Ref Watch:

Rob Styles

Match Prediction:

This is a hard one to predict my heart says a 1-0 win but my head says 0-2 Defeat. We will have to go with the 1-0 win then.
