Predicted Arsenal v Sunderland lineups

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

To be played on Saturday 5th December 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Emirates Stadium, London

Odds: Arsenal 2/7, Draw 9/2, Sunderland 9/1

Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Sunderland at home on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners will head into the game at the Emirates Stadium in North London on the back of a 1-1 draw with Norwich City away from home at Carrow Road.

Arsene Wenger’s side are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 27 points from 14 matches.

The North London outfit are just two points behind leaders Manchester City and are very much in the running for the league title this campaign.

Arsenal, though, have lost momentum in recent weeks, and they do need to return to winning ways this weekend.

The Gunners did not win a single Premier League match last month, and they have to pick up all three points against Sunderland.

Although Sunderland are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season, they have started to show signs of resurgence.

Sam Allardyce’s side have won their last two Premier League games and are currently outside the bottom three.

The Black Cats defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 away from home at Selhurst Park in London before getting the better of Stoke City 2-0 at the Stadium of Light last weekend.
