Arsenal v Sunderland Match preview

Following a 4-1 win over Leeds United, the Gunners are on a run of three successive wins which has put them in the top four of the league standings. The derby win over West Ham United was also a great result for Mikel Arteta’s men who are now showcasing great form and more consistency.

With 11 goals in the last three games, the London giants are back and they should be looking for a straightforward win over the Black Cats who have done well for themselves in League One.

Lee Johnson’s team reached this stage at the expense of QPR. They’re also chasing automatic promotion back to the Championship but a good cup run is going to go nicely with whatever they achieve in the next few months.
