Arsenal will be looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the Premier League when they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this lunchtime.
Arsene Wenger is without Theo Walcott after the winger picked up a minor hamstring injury so Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeps his place on the right wing after scoring a brace in midweek.

Pickford, Jones, Van Aanholt, O’Shea, Kone, Rodwell, Pienaar, NDong, Khazri, Watmore, Defoe
