Arsenal faced Sunderland in their penultimate match of the season. The result didn’t have any significance for Arsenal but it proved very substantial for Sunderland.
There were no goals scored in the entire match. Nope. Not one. Arsenal had an outstanding 75% possession, yet they failed to do anything with it.
A draw for Arsenal means that they’ll stay right where they are in the table. They’re in third place and it looks like that is where it will end for them.
A draw for Sunderland means a completely different thing. It means that they are out the relegation battle. It means that they have secured a place in the Premier League next season. It means that Hull and Newcastle will now have to battle it out for 17th place!
