One to watch this weekend

The pick of the matches this weekend…Arsenal vs Sunderland (Saturday 20th February, 3pm)

Sunderland currently lie in a precarious position with only 3 points cushioning them and the relegation zone. After failing to record a win in their past 6 matches, Sunderland are scrabbling to pick up points, recording draws from 4 of their 6 last matches. Described by some as being on a freefall, Sunderland need to pick up something at the Emirates to stop the rot and to try and claw away from the relegation dog fight. They might have a squad with some good players, but no one is too good to go down.

Arsenal face Sunderland after a vital victory over Liverpool. Following damaging losses to Manchester United and Chelsea, a win this weekend will help to keep the pressure on Manchester United in second place, and will help to try and erase memories of the loss midweek to Porto.
