However, it looked like the Black Cats were headed back down Crap Alley at one point, when poor old Wes Brown equalised for Palace with a bumbling own-goal an own-goal which hit 'keeper Costel Pantilimon hardest of all!

Rosicky the surprise starter against Sunderland

Arsenal Analysis at related • 0 views
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.
