Reason for Arsenal vs Sunderland Predictions

Arsenal is coming from a good run and will be out to extend the same in the League Cup when they play host to League One side Sunderland. The Gunners have registered three straight wins ahead of this game, and though some changes are expected in the team selection, they should still be strong enough to take on Sunderland. They are coming from a 4-1 win over Leeds United, the fourth time in five matches that they managed two or more goals. However, it is their home form that firmly reinforces their status as the favorites here. Arsenal has only lost once at home this season, which was against a very strong Chelsea earlier in the season. Fixtures featuring Arsenal have usually been lively ones of late, with plenty of scoring expected. Over their past six games alone, a total of 20 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game), with 14 of them coming from Arsenal. It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Sead Kolasinac (Ankle Injury) is out of contention. Emile Smith Rowe shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage.

Sunderland heads into this game looking to cause another upset after eliminating QPR in the previous round. It went all the way to penalties before the League One side claimed their spot here. Going to this game, Sunderland has one clean sheet in the last five matches and has failed to score in one of the five. In three of their previous five games, both teams have scored. In two of those five matches, they’ve been able to score two or more goals while away from home they haven’t managed a clean sheet in five. This will be tough for them as they head to the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal has done quite well. Sunderland boss Lee Johnson has to choose from a squad with some fitness concerns. Luke O’Nien (Shoulder Injury), Dennis Cirkin (Groin Surgery), Denver Hume (Unknown Injury), Niall Huggins (Unknown Injury), and Aiden McGeady (Knee Injury) will miss out on this game. Alex Pritchard is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.

Conclusion

Arsenal is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.

The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
