Arsenal Preview – Another comfortable home win for the Gunners?

Arsenal have improved drastically since the early weeks of the season. After recent results, Mikel Arteta’s men have lifted themselves into fourth spot in the Premier League table. Last time out, the Gunners thumped Leeds United 4-1 at Elland Road.

Arsenal have had no European football to contend with this term so have been able to have a real go in the EFL Cup. Back in August, the Gunners got their campaign up and running with a 6-0 win at West Bromwich Albion. They then beat Wimbledon 3-0 before seeing off Leeds with a 2-0 victory at the Emirates.

(odds taken 1425 GMT, Tuesday 2 March)

Arsenal have been incredible at home this season, winning nine of 11. Arteta’s boys are the odds-on favourites to secure another home victory here.

Sunderland Preview – Can the Black Cats cause an upset in the capital?

Lee Johnson’s Sunderland are sitting pretty in third position in League One right now. The Black Cats have won 13, drawn four and lost five of their opening 22 matches. Last weekend, they drew 1-1 with Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

This will be Sunderland’s fifth EFL Cup match of the season. On their way to the last 16, Johnson’s side edged past Port Vale, Blackpool and Wigan Athletic. They then beat EFL Championship high-flyers Queens Park Rangers on penalties in the last round.
