On October 29 2016 at 12:30 in the upcoming game of the 10th matchday of the English Premier League at the Stadium of Light Sunderland play against Arsenal.
Sunderland continue to be the worst team of the championship and nobody knows what is going to help them. The loss to West Ham in the latest game appeared to be their seventh loss in the current season. Before that Sunderland lost to Stoke City 2:0, Crystal Palace 2:3, Tottenham 1:0 and drew West Bromwich 1:1. Consequently, after 9 games played in the currents season of the English Premier League Sunderland gained 2 points and take the last position in the standings with 6:6 goal difference.
Arsenal haven’t lost for 12 games in a raw in all competitions since their loss to Liverpool in the first round of the EPL. The loss to Middleborough in the previous round appeared to be the second one in the current season. Before that the Gunners outplayed Swansea 3:2, Burnley 0:1, Chelsea 3:0 and Hull City 1:4. These results let Arsen Wenger’s side take the second position in the standings with 20 points gained. In fact, they have the same number of points as the leaders Manchester City, but they are on the second place due to the worse goal difference.
Arsenal won most of the games played between the teams. Yet, last time they played on April 24 this year finished with draw. Nevertheless, Sunderland show the worst results in the league in the current season and the worst results in the home games. Arsenal, in their turn, are in the race for championship and tend to be one of the leaders of the EPL. We think that Arsenal are the favorites of the forthcoming game and are very likely to win.
Prediction for the match: Arsenal to win with -1 handicap.
