Arsenal have a wonderful chance to put their name in the hat for the EFL Cup semi-finals when they host Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium in the quarter-finals on Wednesday. After successive defeats to open December, a rejuvenated Gunners side have registered a quickfire trio of Premier League fixtures by an aggregate score of 9-1. Last Wednesday’s London derby win over West Ham United lifted Mikel Arteta’s charges into the top four of the league table, they then followed that up with a convincing victory (4-1) over Leeds United at the weekend.
On the other hand, the visitors have taken a far more arduous route to the final eight than their opponents, as it took a penalty shootout in the previous round to keep their hopes alive. However, the Black Cats’ quest for a return to the second tier this season under Lee Johnson’s guidance has progressed relatively well. They are in good form, having now gone seven games unbeaten in League One as they chase promotion back to the Championship. It would be nothing short of a miracle if Johnson’s men are able to pull off the unthinkable against Arsenal.
