Sunderland Vs Arsenal 1 – 1 – (LIVE)

With two points from their opening nine Premier League games, Sunderland have made the worst start to a top tier season since Sheffield Wednesday – (who had only one point at the same stage) – back in 1999-2000. Arsenal are probably the last team David Moyes would want to be facing as he strives to secure an elusive first league victory since succeeding Sam Allardyce in July but a crowd well in excess of 45,000 is expected to turn up to see him try. Its collective mood could prove influential. Louise Taylor
