Sunderland will face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Sunderland defender DeAndre Yedlin has told The Chronicle that he and his teammates are not getting away with their recent results.

The Black Cats appear to have come into some good form recently, having won their last two Premier League games.

Sam Allardyce’s side returned to winning ways after the international break with a 1-0 success over Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London.

Then on Saturday afternoon, Sunderland got the better of Stoke City 2-0 at the Stadium of Light.

Yedlin, who joined the Black Cats on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, has insisted that the players are not getting carried away.

“We can’t get too excited because we’ve got a very tough game at Arsenal next,” the USA international right-back told The Chronicle.

“That is the next challenge. Hopefully we can get the result there. If we don’t give away any goals, we can’t lose. It would be huge to get another positive result down there and that’s what we’ll be looking to do.”

Winning against Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon will be far from easy.

The Gunners are not exactly in great form at the moment, but they do have better players and a better team.

Moreover, Arsenal will have home advantage, and that could prove to be a major factor in deciding the outcome of the game.
