31

After three fantastic wins in seven days, culminating in that very enjoyable 4-1 win over Stoke at the weekend, Arsenal now face more mundane opposition as they prepare to face relegated Sunderland at home on Tuesday night.

David Moyes side have been poor all season, but any lack of focus from the Gunners could prove costly against a side with nothing to lose.

Ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger provided the latest team news update, and there’s mixed news regarding Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez.

“We have a problem with Koscielny from Stoke,” he said. “He has a recurrence of his calf problem that kept him out last week. We’ll see how he’s recovered today.

“Gibbs is available again, Chamberlain is still out. ”

With regard to Sanchez, who came off against Stoke after scoring a crucial goal, he’s going to have a medical check today.

“Alexis Sanchez will have a test today,” said Wenger. “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.

“Everybody else is ok.”
