Sunderland currently sit stone-bonkers last in the Premier League table with just two points.
The Black Cats, who narrowly avoided relegation along with their Geordie rivals last season, are hanging on by the skin of their teeth and I wouldn’t be surprised if a big loss to Arsenal seals David Moyes’ fate.
Sunderland have drawn two and lost three of their last five matches against the Gunners.
Out of the 150 times we’ve faced each other, Arsenal have won 60, Sunderland 49. However, at the Stadium of Light, the Black Cats have the advantage. They’ve won 27 on their turf; we’ve won 18.
Jermain Defoe is their main man right now and if anyone’s going to earn Sunderland a point or more on Saturday, it’s going to be him. He’s scored four Premier League goals this season.
