On paper, Arsenal should have no trouble beating Sunderland, even though Saturday’s game is at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland are 12th in the table and have lost more games at home than Arsenal have away. Arsene Wenger will know that his team face a tough task in the North East though.
After Arsenal have reportedly secured the signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, and the expected arrival of Yann M’Vila, everyone is wondering who will be the next target on Arsene Wenger’s wish-list.
The Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner got a boot in the nose from Angel Rangel when Sunderland played Swansea about a month ago, but the Black Cats have been playing brilliantly in his absence (including two games against his parent club) and Martin O’Neill now says that he will have to fight to regain his place in the team when he is fully recovered.
The Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill saw his team held until the 113th minute last night before Stephan Sessegnon scored the winner against Middlesbrough, setting up two home games against Arsenal in the space of a week.
I was just browsing around the internet aimlessly (as I do!) and I found a website that is advertising prices on who will take over as Arsenal manager if and when Arsene Wenger retires.
So I thought; That’s an interesting question….
