Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the English Premier League by lunch time when they take on troubled Sunderland.
The Gunners were held to a 0-0 draw by Middlesbrough in their last Premier League clash. A result which cost them the chance to go top of the league standings despite results elsewhere going their way.
Ahead of the tie against Sunderland, Arsene Wenger has reportedly made changes to his team, with Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi set to be replaced in the starting line up by Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
Chamberlain has been in good form of late for the Gunners, scoring a brace in their Tuesday Cup win over Reading, in addition to his strike against Ludogorets Razgard in the UEFA Champions League.
While Egyptian midfielder Mohammed El-Nenny will make way for the returning Santi Carzola, who missed last week clash due to an injury but trained normally with the rest of the squad yesterday.
