Sunderland - Gold

ARSENAL 2-0 S'LAND, 2010
Bendtner enjoyed a purple patch last Spring and this is the game that started it off. He converted Eboue's low cross from close range in the first half and Fabregas converted a penalty in stoppage time to secure three vital points.

Sunderland - Gold

ARSENAL 3-2 S'LAND, 2007
Arsenal started this one like a train and were two up inside 15 minutes thanks to Van Persie's venomous free kick and a Senderos collector's item. Sunderland hit back to level before the break but Van Persie had the last word ten minutes from time.

Sunderland - Gold

ARSENAL 3-1 S'LAND, 2002
A day for Kanu to savour. The Nigerian scored twice in the opening nine minutes to stun Sunderland and Vieira made sure of the points on the stroke of half time. Craddock's late consolation gave the scoreline respectability but Arsenal were dominant.
