Team news for Sunderland – major doubts over Kos and Alexis

Match Preview, NewsNow, Premier League


Following our amazing 4-1 win at Stoke this weekend, we are now back to two home games to finish off the domestic season. Liverpool beat West Ham yesterday meaning, we need another last day/week miracle to get top four, something even the most optimistic Arsenal fan has surely now written off. As the season comes to a close, click here for the final few day’s Premier League betting.

Anyway, the first of our two final games take place tomorrow night, at home to Sunderland and the team news, as always, isn’t great. Arsene Wenger has announced this morning there are doubts over Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny following our bruising encounter at Stoke.

Koscielny still has a calf problem, made worse by the game at the Bet365 Stadium, and it seems as though Alexis Sanchez is also a doubt. Wenger confirming he has a fitness test today, but said that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Chilean plays after all:

“Alexis Sanchez will have a test today, yesterday, it didn’t look too good, but with him you never know. It was just a kick, so it’s possible that he recovers for tomorrow…”

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out, still racing against time to be fit for the Cup Final, but in slightly better news, Kieran Gibbs should be back in contention for a place on the bench.
