Team News: Arsenal vs Sunderland

Huzzah! My internet is back!

After rather rudely blasting Mr Branson for my lack of Internet I finally found that one of the connections on my hub had come lose. Embarrassing.

But hey ho.

Let`s check out the team for today`s crucial match against Sunderland.

Arsenal team to play Sunderland: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Rosicky, Wilshere, Cazorla, Podolski, Giroud

Arsenal subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Flamini, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gnabry, Sanogo, Bendtner

No Ozil ... at all. Is he injured?

Wow. Arsenal lose to Liverpool or Munich and it's comment city around here. 4-1 win and not a single word.

Brilliant result and a cracking performance, it would have been easy for them to feel sorry for themselves and hide, but they stepped up and dished out a whooping. This Sunderland teams has beaten all the big boys too!

Pretty solid performance. We've got a bit of a rest now so a chance to recharge and work out some play on the training pitch. Picking up points in the games we should pick them up is probably more important this season than most.

Had to be at engagements which kept me from seeing the game, but I followed the scores anyway. Nice to see the lads respond in a way very few expected. Poyet, after sounding off about taking advantage of our depressed state after midweek exertions, must be thinking "that's the best side I have faced since my team's resurgence". Sunderland has held its own against some top sides (Chelsea and Man U in capital one; Everton, S'pton and Stoke in the league) so our performance cannot be seen in any other light than positive.

Another thing we showed was the depth of our squad, even when injuries hit our CB and LB. Podolski looked to have played his first 90minutes in a while, Giroud returned and I can see from the reviews, he looked sharper. Ozil wasn't even in the squad and Ox was on the bench. We are defying some stereotypes and that's why we appear to have few comments on the site today. Nothing like bad 'Gnus' to stir things up.

Sunderland is no pushover as you mentioned Rocky, this result is massive. Man of the match stuff from Rosicky, and his goal today would have put a smile on Bergkamp's face. Perfect weekend after an unfortunate week.

Just rewatched the goals on MOTD. Rosicky's goal was just majestic, a thing of beauty, I could watch that over and over!

The one-touch passes that culminated in Rosicky's fine touch bring back memories of the great Brazilian teams. Hopefully the rise of the Arsenal will lead to a renaissance of a sort and the beautiful game will be restored in its full glory.

Not only was the performance solid, it was entertaining. I mean the first and third goals were simply Arsenal working their magic whilst the opposition stood bye and applauded. It was nice to Iceman around as well.
