Team News: Arsenal vs Sunderland

Normal football resumes for the Gunners today after a couple of weeks to digest yet another loss to our North London rivals.

We`re currently suffering our worst start to a Premier League season ever, a start that contains our heaviest defeat in 120 odd years.

The comfort of today`s game is that we`re playing at home, and against a team who have been as woeful as we have. If a victory is not forth coming I`ll be officially, what`s technically known as, crapping myself about our season.

Here`s how the two teams line up.

We seem to be awful at taking set pieces as well as defending from them

That was a needless free kick to give away. If we started closing down and defending as a team we would not be in this pos.
