Arsenal are back in Premiership action at Sunderland on Monday - and our countdown to kick-off starts here with some classic archive action.

Our clip takes you back to May 2003 and a comfortable victory for Arsenal as they rounded off their Premiership fixtures with a trip to the Stadium of Light to face relegated Sunderland.

Thierry Henry opened the scoring after just seven minutes but Freddie Ljungberg was the star of the show, scoring his first - and so far his only - hat-trick for Arsenal. The Swede struck twice in the final 12 minutes to complete a memorable treble.
