Arsenal 4-1 Sunderland - Full Time Report

Looking to banish memories of their midweek defeat to Bayern Munich, Arsenal had the easiest of starts, going into the lead after just five minutes. Jack Wilshere received a pass from Tomas Rosicky just inside the box, then slid the ball to Olivier Giroud, who found the corner of the net.

On 31 minutes Arsenal doubled their lead after a risible Sunderland mistake. Santiago Vergini played a woeful back-pass to Vito Mannone which Giroud collected, and then nutmegged the ‘keeper.

With three minutes of the half left, Rosicky made it three, dinking the ball over Mannone to finish a precise four-man passing move.

In the second half, Sunderland started the brightest and Fabio Borini brought a smart save from Wojciech Szczesny from a tight angle. Sunderland then dominated until 57 minutes in, Laurent Koscielny was found unmarked by a Santi Cazorla corner, and he headed past a static Mannone.

Emanuele Giaccherini scored a great goal from the edge of the box, but with nine minutes left it was nothing more than a consolation.
