Arsenal Thrashed Sunderland 3-1 once again. Do you Missed The action of the Match today Saturday 9 2016, Download and Watch the Full Highlight Below!
The two-time holders are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after a low- pressure, intermittently urgent 3-1 defeat of Sunderland at the Emirates.
A changed, but not overly-changed Arsenal team took its moments to strike, with second-half goals from Aaron Ramsey and Oliver Giroud sealing the tie. Alex Iwobi made a promising first start in the competition. And Arsenal’s attempt to become the first team since Blackburn 130 years ago to win the FA Cup three times in a row remains, for now, on course. Beyond that, in the world of modern footballing realpolitik, this was a result that probably suited both teams. Sunderland took the lead here, and played with energy throughout but in the build up to this game Sam Allardyce had railed against the round of Premier League fixtures scheduled for Tuesday night.
It is easy enough to see his point. For Sunderland January is a tipping point in the league, with a run of three eminently winnable matches against Aston Villa, Swansea and Bournemouth. With this in mind Allardyce’s starting XI was a stripped back affair, with seven changes from their last Premier League game, including 21- year-old Jordan Pickford, who made a fine club debut in goal.
