Arsenal welcome Sunderland to the Emirates stadium tonight for their outstanding Premier league match.

Sunderland need one point from either of their final two games to guarantee survival. Even if the Black Cats were to lose both games, Hull City need to beat Manchester United and Newcastle would need to draw with West Ham to send Dick Advocaat’s team down.

A knee injury has kept Wes Brown out of the last two games for Sunderland. Sebastián Coates has started the last four games having previously had limited opportunities since arriving on loan from Liverpool at the start of last season.

Another South American loanee on Wearside, Ricky Álvarez too has seen limited action for Sunderland this season and is not going to feature at the Emirates because of a knee injury. Liam Bridcutt is unlikely to be available to Advocaat in midfield either.

Having said this, here is how Advocaat is expected to line-up his side against Arsenal tonight.
