Arsenal 2 Sunderland 0. Ask and you shall receive.
Arsenal left this one a bit late with Alexis, Ozil and Xhaka linking up in the 71st to give Arsenal the 1 nil lead and they never looked back. In a game which could have easily seen Arsenal win 9-0, if it weren’t for Jordan Pickford, the Sunderland stopper had a remarkable 11 saves, most of which were top quality.
With this 2 nil victory over Sunderland, Arsenal now have to rely on double agent Calum Chambers and Middlesborough to beat or draw away at Anfield (Liverpool) to secure Arsenal 4th place. Obviously, we have to beat Everton at home to secure this as a reality.
Sunday will be hell. If you do not see a blog from me recapping Sunday’s match just know I have probably had a stroke.
Come on you Gunners
