Arsenal vs Sunderland preview! 3 key players ruled out for Arsenal, and prediction
Arsenal are just three points adrift Manchester City on the Premier League log with two games to bring the League to a wrap but the Gunners have had their eyes on Liverpool, who sits in third position. The Reds are now in pole position for Champions League qualification but if the Citizens slip, Arsenal will may usurp them to a spot in the first quartet of the table.
We play Sunderland tomorrow at the Emirates in our penultimate League game of this season. On paper, the Gunners will come-off that game with the three points as The Black Cats have nothing to play for other than pride, having been relegated.
Barring the defeat to City rivals Tottenham, Arsenal have won four of their last five games in the League and they will be looking to maintain the same momentum against Sunderland tomorrow night. Meanwhile for the David Moyes and his men, they have only won one of their last five league games which accounted for why they are comfortably seated on the last spot on the table.
With the recent form of Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal may have already won the midfield battle, which should see them dominate the game. Sunderland will may not threaten the Gunners in away as they are expected to sit deep.
Latest report according to Fantasy Football Scout, Arsenal will be without up to three key players – Santi Cazorla remains on the sideline since forever while players that have joined him lately are Kierran Gibbs with a calf injury, Alexis Sanchez with a thigh injury and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain with a hamstring. The aforementioned players have been a core part of the in-form Arsenal side but they are unlikely to feature against the Lads.
Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 Sunderland
