Premier League Preview for Sunderland v Arsenal along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Sunderland have come out of the transfer window having made the most new signings in the Premier League. It will be interesting to see how all these new players respond to playing in the Premier League, but even more so, how they respond to playing for Paulo Di Canio.
They have started out the 2013-14 season by scoring two goals and allowing five in their two losses and one draw. Quite the disappointing start.
Arsenal also started out the season disappointingly but their 1-0 home win over Tottenham combined with their record signing of Mesut Ozil means that they have renewed hope of challenging as a contender for the title. While everyone was complaining about their poor start they managed to score five goals, while allowing four, not a bad start, especially considering the circumstances of their first three they allowed.
My prediction for Saturday’s game is an Arsenal win. If Mesut Ozil is able to settle in this week and really get into the match it could become very one sided. I have a hard time seeing Sunderland putting up much of a fight in this one, especially with their current form and current drama going on at the club.
