Arsenal to Win with Handicap (-1)

While both teams are in good forms at the moment, Arsenal is having a good time lately in Premier League, while Sunderland is playing in League One. So, Arsenal is the clear favourite in this match, as is obvious from the odds as well.

With that in mind, our prediction is for Arsenal to win this game by two or more goals. After all, Arsenal beat Sunderland in four of their last five duels and all four wins were achieved by at least a two-goal difference.

Arsenal to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Since we expect to see a convincing win for Arsenal in this match, we also expect the home team to take the lead in first half and keep it until the end.

After all, it would be a huge surprise if Sunderland can hold on until the second half since Arsenal has been very convincing in the EFL Cup this season and we can’t see this game being any different.

Both Teams to Score – No

Although both teams have scored in three of the previous five h2h duels between Arsenal and Sunderland, their last meeting was a long time ago and those games are hardly representative of what we can expect now.

So, we don’t expect both teams to score in this game. We chose this market to stay on the safe side, but we would also be comfortable to place a bet on Arsenal keeping a clean sheet or winning by nil, which come at higher odds. After all, Arsenal has yet to concede this season in EFL Cup.

Arsenal vs Sunderland preview: An easy job for Sunderland?

The two teams will meet for the first time since Sunderland was still in Premier League, so this should be a very exciting match. Let’s check the teams out in more detail:

Arsenal

The Gunners have been in good form lately with four wins in the last six matches and three straight wins in the Premier League. In fact, the team is currently in the fourth spot in the PL standings, which is as high as they were in the last few years. Furthermore, the team reached the quarter-finals of EFL cup, so the fans can certainly be happy with the season so far. Aubameyang, Kolasinac, Mari, and Lokonga are out with injuries, while Tomiyasu is questionable.

Sunderland

After nearly half a season in League One, Sunderland is third and in hunt for one of the top two spots and a direct promotion to Championship. In the last six games in the league, Sunderland has three wins and three draws, so they are in good form at the moment. They also got to this stage of EFL Cup by eliminating Port Vale, Blackpool, Wigan, and QPR. Huggins, McGeady, O’Nien and Willis are all out of the next game due to injuries, while Cirkin and Dajaku are doubtful.
