Arsenal will take on Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners will be favourites to pick up all three points from the encounter, but Gray believes that the North London outfit will not do so.
“Sunderland will be up for this because if they can get a point they will go above Norwich and Arsenal are a bit hit and miss at the moment,” the former Scotland international wrote on Sport360.com. “1-1.”
Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has backed Sunderland to win against Arsenal and enhance their chances of survival in the Premier League.
“Sunderland have looked much better recently and I now think they are going to survive,” Keys wrote on Sport360.com. “If they get on the front foot with some momentum from the start and beat Arsenal up a bit, they will win. 1-0.”
Arsenal are out of the Premier League title race, but they are not guaranteed a place in the top four.
The Gunners do need to win against Sunderland in order to ease the pressure on themselves.
Arsene Wenger will head into the game against the Black Cats on the back of a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium.
Meanwhile, Sunderland currently find themselves third from bottom in the Premier League table and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship.
Playing at home is going to be an advantage for the Black Cats, but they may have to settle for a point against Arsenal.
