Hate it when these anti-Arsenal fans come in predict stupid scorelines that are never likely to happen. On a more serious note, I'm going for 2-1 Arsenal. It's way too hard for us to keep a clean sheet otherwise I'd have gone with 2-0. RvP and Gervinho with the goals, Ji Dong-won for Sunderland.

Both clubs on a poor run of form, but Sunderland are just unbelieveable poor at the moment, which is surprising with the quality they bought in the window, but Arsenal are on a bit of a barren spell too. But that being said, Arsenal (on paper anyway) will have the better squad. Going for a 3-0 Arsenal. Arteta :)wub:) Van Persie x2

3-2 is a stupid scoreline? :|

Arsenal to at least temporarily silence the critics with resounding 4-1 win.

Second one was clearly a joke with Calum...

4-0 isn't an impossible scoreline, if we defend v Sunderland like we did in the Man Utd match then we can lose by far more than 4.

But this is finally a match where I think we'll ****** the 3 points.
