Arsenal’s win against Palace has now put the Gunners in the driving seat to hold on to third place in the League, and most pundits believe that we have the easiest run in of the challengers but there is little chance of us having an easy game against Sunderland tomorrow.
Arsene Wenger and the players believe that we have finally hit some good form with 3 wins and 2 draws from our last 5 games, but it is worth noting that Sunderland are doing their usual end of season burst to avoid relegation, and in fact the only game they have lost in the last 6 was against Leicester.
Le Prof is well aware that Sam Allardyce is always a hard man to beat in any game. “They have found a stability with him because has big experience,” Wenger said. “They have a good midfield now. They play most of the time Kirchhoff, Cattermole and M’Vila, who are quite a balanced midfield.
“Up front the have Khazri on the left, who is dangerous as well. Overall I think Allardyce has found a good balance. We are in a position where we want the three points so it should be an interesting battle.”
It will certainly be interesting, and it will certainly be a battle! But have Arsenal finally found the form to continue their winning run against a Sunderland side fighting for their Premiership survival?
