Winless Sunderland host Arsenal at the Stadium of Light on Saturday (Watch live, 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBC Sports).

David Moyes‘ side have failed to win any of their opening nine games of the Premier League and are at risk of being cut adrift at the bottom of the table with just a quarter of the season gone.


The Black Cats have a horrendous record against Arsenal too, winning just one of their last 25 PL meetings with the Gunners. Arsene Wenger‘s Arsenal go into this game seven matches unbeaten and sit joint-top of the table on 20 points.

Sunderland make one change to their starting lineup as Billy Jones replaces Javier Manquillo at right back with USMNT midfielder Lynden Gooch on the bench.

Arsenal is without Theo Walcott, while Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud return to the squad following injury.


Sunderland: Pickford; Jones, O’Shea, Kone, Van Aanholt; Rodwell, N’Dong, Pienaar; Khazri, Defoe, Watmore. Subs: Mika, Manquillo, Djilobodji, Love, Janjuzaj, Gooch, Anichebe

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs; Coquelin, Elneny; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Iwobi; Alexis. Subs: Ospina, Jenkinson, Holding, Gabriel, Ramsey, Giroud, Maitland-Niles
