ARS vs SUN: What Black Cats should expect from the Gunners today

Latest Arsenal news from Emirates, Arsenal transfer news today, Arsenal vs Sunderland live update, Arsenal gossip and rumors, Arsenal face Sunderland in today’s game live streaming.

No doubt, Arsenal will host Sunderland in today’s game at the Emirates stadium tonight with a kick-off time at 20:45 hrs BST(8:45 p.m. local time) in the EFL quarterfinal game tonight.

According to a report, Arsenal is facing the most difficult club side, Sunderland in today’s game, as
Mikel Arteta dethrones his captain, due to impressive points against West Ham and Leeds United in the Premier League, PL. To get an insight into how they will be approaching the visit to the Emirates, we caught up with Sunderland Echo’s Joe Nicholson.

Meanwhile, Sunderland this season had good memories this season – most notably a penalty shootout wins in front of a packed away end at QPR in the last round.

This is Sunderland’s fourth season in League One and fans have missed such occasions. Still, as I mentioned before, whether they win promotion from the third tier is what the club will be judged on this campaign.

Sunderland Formation Against Arsenal

Johnson started the season playing with a 4-2-3-1 formation but has been forced to alter his system in recent time. Sunderland has been playing with a back three and wing-backs, although full-backs Dennis Cirkin and Denver Hume have now returned to training.

At QPR in the last round, Johnson deployed a 4-3-3 system to give the side more security in central midfield – although they are also low on numbers in that area.

The storyline from Sunderland teams

Aiden McGeady and Luke O’Nien are out long-term. Hume, Cirkin, and captain Corry Evans have all returned to training following setbacks, with Hume coming off the bench against Ipswich on Saturday so may get a start. Leon Dajaku was forced off with a contact injury at the weekend.
