Match analysis from Bet Butler.
The Black Cats played well against Reading last weekend despite the scoreline not going their way. Arsenal are odds on for this game, but have drawn more away games than they’ve won this season.
Sunderland are more than capable of beating Arsenal, as their victory over Man City showed recently. However, it would be well worth covering the draw as these teams have finished level in five of their last 11 head to heads.
The best bet for this match could be on the half time result as the last 10 games between these two have featured just 14 goals with seven half-time draws. Sunderland have drawn the first half in 15 of their last 28 home games, as have Arsenal in 15 of 26 on the road.
Just as in the reverse fixture in the first game of the season, goals could be at a premium on Saturday, making under 1.5 match goals appealing at 3.75.
Steven Fletcher is the Black Cat’s best bet for scoring first at 7.0, while Danny Graham is worth an interest at 10.0.
Sunderland have scored first in half their home games this term, while Arsenal have conceded first in half their away games.
