Arsenal travels to the north-east of England to face off against a Sunderland team that’s fighting for their lives to stay in the Premier League. With all to play for this is a must-see match-up for both teams, with the Gunners aiming to maintain their course to stay in the top 4 and the all important Champions League spots for next season.
Arsenal got back to winning ways against West Brom on Apr. 21, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez in a crucial 2-0 win. It meant they leap-frogged Manchester City in the standings and went back up to third. Sunderland are currently 18th in the table, but know that a few wins in their last 4 games will see then climb out of the relegation zone.
However, their form has been a little patchy. They earned a crucial 3-0 win away at fellow strugglers Norwich City last time out, but before that they couldn’t buy a win with 4 tied games and a loss in their previous 5 games before that. Their biggest problem has been scoring goals, which has been a struggle for them all season.
The Gunners will be confident of piercing the Sunderland defensive line, with playmaker Mesut Ozil aiming to be the top assist maker this season. He’s on 18 this season, well ahead of the competition, and is chasing the all-time record of most assists in the Premier League, which stands at 20. He’s got 4 games to do it!
With Arsenal still having something to play for, this will be a tough game for Sunderland who are desperate for the 3 points themselves. It could end up a score draw.
