Sunderland Preview – Arsenal key man to miss out? Predicted line up

Match Preview, NewsNow, Premier League

With yet another end of season miracle required to get us top 4 this season, all eyes will be on The Emirates tonight as we prepare to take on already relegated Sunderland.

It looks like Laurent Koscielny will miss out on the game after his calf/achilles problem has returned, but in better news it looks like our bionic Chilean will be fine after a few kicks against Stoke RFC on Saturday evening have cured themselves in Terminator style. However, I do wonder whether Wenger will start to wrap some of our stars, including Sanchez in cotton wool ahead of the Cup Final, so perhaps tonight could see the return of Theo, and/or iWobi along with Coquelin, Perez and/or El Neny?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still unavailable, according to Wenger, he is 80/20 to make the Chelsea game. Keiran Gibbs is set to return, albeit to the bench, while Aaron Ramsey, Gabriel and Danny Welbeck could all be in line to feature in our latest must-win game, a win would at least give us a chance of a top 4 finish if results go our way (as they did last season, you may remember Newcastle 5 (FIVE) – Top Two Tottenham 1 (ONE), which allowed us to leapfrog Spurs into second place, let’s hope ‘it happens agaaaain’.

My predicted line up (with plenty of early subs IF we’re winning) would be:


…and a convincing 16-0 win to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Man City.
