Sunderland play hosts to Arsenal on Sunday at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League, as the home side look to mount another great escape from relegation.

Sunderland’s survival hopes were boosted massively with a 3-0 win at direct rivals Norwich last time out. Goals from Fabio Borini, Jermain Defoe and youngster Duncan Watmore saw Sam Allardyce’s side seal a much-needed win.

The victory moved the Black Cats to one point behind the 17thplace Canaries and the side from the north east also has a game in hand on the side from Norfolk.

Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe has hit form this season in front of goal and has now scored 13 top-flight goals in a team that has struggled to find the net.

Arsenal moved back up to third in the Premier League table with a 2-0 victory over West Brom on Thursday night. A brace from Alexis Sanchez was enough to give the Gunners maximum points. The victory moved the Gunners four points clear of fifth-place Manchester United in the pursuit of a top four spot.

Chilean international Sanchez has now scored 12 times this season in the Premier League, despite enduring fitness and injury problems.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met 29 times in the Premier League, with Arsenal dominating the fixture by winning 17 times. Nine games have finished in draws and Sunderland have won just three times.

The 14 Premier League meetings between these two teams have saw Arsenal win seven games, four games finish in draws and Sunderland record three wins.

Sunderland have won just one of the last ten meetings between these two teams in all competitions.

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has a poor record against Arsenal, having faced the Gunners on 30 occasions he has won just five times, drew seven times, but also suffered 18 defeats.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last six games in the Premier League. The Gunners have also been prolific on their travels in the Premier League, as the side from north London have scored two or more in their last five away games in the top-flight.

Team Selection And News

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has a fully-fit squad to choose from for this vital encounter, but is likely to name an unchanged team from last time out following that victory at Norwich.

Arsenal are likely to be without midfield trio of Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Tomas Rosicky. However, England international Jack Wilshere has recovered from injury and could feature for the first time this season.

Possible Sunderland Team Selection

Mannone, Yedlin, Kone, Kaboul, Van Aanholt, Kirchhoff, Borini, Cattermole, M’Vila, Khazri, Defoe

Possible Arsenal Team Selection

Cech, Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Elneny, Sanchez, Ozil, Iwobi, Welbeck

Match Prediction

Sunderland have suddenly burst into life and that win over Norwich will have boosted their confidence no end. I do believe this is a banana skin for Arsenal. This game will be tight and I think the Black Cats may just take a point from it.
