Arsenal v Sunderland Preview And Predictions - Carabao Cup Quarterfinal

Arsenal will be looking to book their League Cup semi-final spot when they welcome Sunderland to the Emirates on Tuesday night. The Gunners have yet to conceded a goal en-route to the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup, brushing aside West Brom, AFC Wimbledon and Leeds, however the 2014 finalists Sunderland will be hoping for a Premier League scalp and the upset against Mikel Arteta's team.

Recent Form

Arsenal put on a good showing at the weekend against Leeds, Match of the Day fans were hoping for one considering that it was the only game that was played on Saturday due to postponements caused by Covid-19. Whilst Mikel Arteta’s side did play well, Leeds were a shambles. 

The Gunners had the most shots on target in the first half (11) out of any team in Premier League history which really goes to show how poor the home side really were. 

Sunderland are currently sitting 3rd in League One with a draw against Ipswich Town in their latest game meaning that they are four points behind the pacesetters, Rotherham. Aiden McGeady, their fifth top goal-scorer ever, will be out of the game due to a knee injury which will be a massive blow if Sunderland want to get anything out of this clash.

Arsenal To Win To Nil

Since the start of 2010, these teams have played 17 games each other and Arsenal have only lost once, with an impressive record of W11-D5-L1 in that time. 

All of these games were played when Sunderland were in the Premier League with the latest game in 2017 finishing 2-0 to the Gunners. 

The only game which Arsenal lost amongst the 17 was an FA Cup game in which they lost 2-0, this was largely due to them playing a much weaker team which was something that Arsene Wenger loved to do. 

Out of the five draws they had, four of them were goalless. Arsenal only scored 29 goals whilst Sunderland just managed to hit 10, which means the average match goals for these games is 2.3.

We expect Arsenal to play a much weaker side considering their position in the league and the fact that it has been a busy schedule before and after this game so there will probably be some unfamiliar faces but we do also expect Mikel Arteta to put out a winning team. 

There is also quite obviously a huge gulf in class between the two sides, with Sunderland having a fall from grace over the last six years or so it seems like this game is only going to go one way.

Since losing 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday back in 2015, Arsenal have won nine successive matches in this competition against lower league opponents, even if one did come via extra time against Norwich. 

The most recent three have come to nil-with the Gunners scoring a total 14 goals across these three outings, and with momentum very much with the Londoners, another win-to-nil looks likely.
