Today is game day Gunners and Sunderland have not won at Arsenal in any competition since May 1983. Good news. No, scratch that, Great news!!
Some players have left and others have come in. Scratch that too. Great players have come into the squad! Leading our attack today will be the one and only, Giroud. The tall french striker should make easy work of Mignolet!
Attacking our mid field from the centre, Carzorla- and we all know what he can do! Finally, and what I consider our best signing this season, leading the attack from the wing, Podolski- or as I like to call him, Po-GOAL-ski!
As a club, I hope this season we will be collectively stronger as we put that theory to the test with a determined Sunderland team standing in our way. Sunderland will spear head their attack with Sessegnon but without many new faces, I doubt they’ll pose much of a threat against us.
We don’t need to be reminded about RVP anymore but let’s not forget his 29sec blitz goal last season against Sunderland. I know we’ll all be hoping that one of our new stars can better that record today and erase RVP from the record books.
My score prediction for the match today. Arsenal 2 Sunderland 0
