With all the criticism of Arsene Wenger on JustArsenal over the last week, an outsider looking in would think it was safe to assume that Arsenal had lost their last two games and are way behind the leaders in the Premiership. But the reality is that we have WON our last two games and are [...]
Following their victory over Sunderland, can Arsenal now go on a run of victories? by SE Arsenal went into the game against Sunderland on Saturday, having picked up a single point in their last two Premier League games. However, the Gunners had a relatively easy time of it at the Stadium of Light, as an [.
He may have had more than his fair share of criticism since signing for Arsenal from Real Madrid last summer, but there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger sees the Germany international play maker as absolutely vital to his plans for the Gunners. And even though Ozil started this season a bit slowly after his [.
Arsenal made very hard work of beating Sunderland yesterday and the relief of scoring the second goal to secure the points didn't arrive until the 93rd minute due to another defensive error from the woeful Sunderland side that were beaten 8-0 in the preceding week. Arsene Wenger must have been very relieved himself and was [.
Sunderland 0-2 Arsenal Premier League 25th October 2014
Arsenal secured a much-needed if hardly-deserved victory at the Stadium of Light on Saturday. The Gunners' best player by some distance, Alexis Sanchez, bagged both goals in a game where the hosts were once again their own worst enemies.
It seems a little bit churlish to complain about things that Arsene Wenger has done after Arsenal won an away game 2-0, but just as I look for positives after a disappointing result, I do feel that there were a few strange decisions from the Frenchman at Sunderland today. I can understand why Wenger was [.
I must admit that I am very surprised at the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. It smacks of extreme caution to me, when I expected the Frenchman to try to build on the midweek win and take advantage of the low confidence that the Black [...
Long trip up north for the fans especially after an away CL game.
Sunderland: haveyou ever been to Sunderland? I have. Went to watch the lads at the Stadium of Light in 2003, we won 4-0 with a Freddie hayrick. Do you know they have coal on the beaches and a freezing cold wind blowing in from the sea!
Sunderland will be smarting from their 8-0 hammering last week at the hands of Southampton so I expect them to be much much tighter tomorrow against an Arsenal side who have struggled thus far in-front of goal for the amount of possession they gain expect more of the same tomorrow at the Stadium of Light.
The Arsenal manager spoke to the press today ahead of the trip north to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow, as reported by The Mirror. And I don't think that Arsene Wenger needed to stretch his tactical acumen too far to realise that the home side may well concentrate on their defending after being [.
The graph below shows the ten clubs who have amassed the most goalsin the history of English football's top division, ranging from the pre-Premier League era (First Division) right through to the present day.
Rather surprisingly, particularly to those of a younger generation, Everton and Aston Villa head the list, beatingthe modern day behemoths of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.
It was surely no surprise to Arsenal fans when Jack Wilshere fouled Hull City's Gaston Ramirez after about an hour on Saturday and even less of a surprise that the referee showed him a yellow card for the challenge. Because that is unfortunately a part of the England midfielders game and the fact that it [.
Yesterday, Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone suggested that Black Cats players should reimburse supporters who had traveled to St Mary's on Saturday only to witness the club fall to a humiliating 8-0 defeat against Southampton.
"I will personally talk to the team to see if it is possible to pay [for the fans'] tickets and their trip," Mannone said.
Sunderland 'keeper Vito Mannone has posited that he and his beleaguered teammates should club together to reimburse the Black Cats fans who schlepped the entire length of the country only to watch their side get utterly dismantled by Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
Gus Poyet was left bemoaning the most embarrassing moment of his football career after his Sunderland side were hammered 8-0 at Southampton.
The Uruguayan saw the Black Cats score two own goals on their way to their biggest ever Barclays Premier League defeat as a Graziano Pelle brace, as well as goals from Jack Cork, Dusan Tadic, Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane sealed a memorable afternoon for the hosts.

Former Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio was interviewed on Sky Sports:Goals on Sunday yesterday and shared his thoughts on the Black Cats' embarrassing 8-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday.

This is the Sunderland line-up today. Jozy Altidore is on the bench. #SAFC: Mannone, Vergini, van Aanholt, O'Shea (c), Brown, Cattermole, Larsson, Rodwell, Buckley, Johnson, Fletcher. — Sunderland AFC (@SunderlandAFC) October 25, 2014 This was the Sunderland line-up last weekend... ya know... the one beat 8-0 by Southampton.
By 1970's Gooner The horrid display at Anderlecht made obvious two major weaknesses that need to be addressed for the Sunderland game and the ones that will follow. The defence is already weak and needs to be protected. Monreal is playing out of position and looks it. He is not up to it. Chambers can do so much and he is bound to start having average games.
Sun'lan fan Cass Farrar: Proud owner of one of football's most depressing hat-tricks
It's little wonder he looks so glum, for this man is Sunderland fan Cass Farrar and not only did he make the trip to watch the Black Cats get neuteredby Southampton at the weekend, but he's also been present on the two other occasions his beloved sidehave been obliterated by an 8-0 scoreline.
