Sunderland stand in the relegation zone and they desperately need points in order to move up in the safe zone. The match against Arsenal is not coming in the right moment, but home team have to go for a win in this game or at least to stay unbeaten. In the previous Round Sunderland took important three points against Norwich 0-3 and they are full of confidence for this game. In the last six Premier League matches, home side lost only once, but on the other side they have managed to win only one match (1-4-1). In the first half of the season Arsenal beat them 3-1, but this time they will play upfront their supporters and without any doubt they will have big support. Sunderland don’t have impressive record against Arsenal. The last time they beat them at home 7 years ago. They have nothing to lose, but even with one point they would increase their chances to stay in the best football league in England.

Arsenal stand at the 4th position and the title race for them is over, but they want to finish the season in the Top 3 and qualify directly in the Champions League, so this game is very important for them. Visitors are playing very good and they are unbeaten in the last 5 Premier League matches, but their away performance is not impressive. In the last 8 away Premier League matches they have managed to win only two games, so it won’t be an easy job for them to take all three points. Their main candidate for the 3rd place Manchester City beat Stoke City 4-0 yesterday and now they have one points more than team from London, but Arsenal have one match less, so if they beat Sunderland today, Arsene Wenger’s men would take the 3rd position. Alexis Sanchez is in the great form, after he scored 5 goals in the last 4 matches, and he will be the most dangerous player for home defence.

Sunderland vs Arsenal injuries and suspensions

In home team Jeremain Lens (19/2 m) and DeAndre Yedlin (18/0 d) are both doubtful, but both will be probably in contention for this game. On the other side, visitors will be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (22/1 m) and Santi Cazorla (14/0 m), while Jack Wilshere (0/0 m) and Tomas Rosicky (0/0 m) are both doubtful.

Sunderland vs Arsenal possible lineups

Sunderland: Mannone; Jones, Kaboul, Kone, Van Aanholt; Kirchhoff, M’Vila, Cattermole; Borini, Watmore; Defoe.
