Photos: Sam Allardyce goes through every possible emotion against Arsenal

Allardyce deflated

The Sunderland boss kicked every ball on the touchline with his side.

Sunderland head coach Sam Allardyce went through every emotion possible as his side drew 0-0 with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The valuable point puts the Black Cats safe - for now - meaning they can ensure survival if they match or better all of Norwich City and Newcastle United's results.

The 0-0 draw against the Gunners was a hard-fought one and Big Sam kicked every ball on the touchline alongside his players at the Stadium of Light.

And there were a range of photos demonstrating just what a day Allardyce endured v Arsenal.

He laughed, smiled, screamed, raged, worried and more, showing just how much passion the Sunderland boss still has for the job. It doesn't look like retirement will be on the agenda for the 61-year-old anytime soon...

Next up for the Black Cats is a trip to out-of-form Stoke City. Sunderland could yet pull off the Great Escape - but they know there are two other teams just as desperate to do the same.
