Sunderland are averaging just one goal a game this season but when they have found the net, the former Gunner has been heavily involved. Larsson has a goal and two assists already and his crossing is deadly. Sunderland have a tall squad and Arsenal have struggled to defend set-pieces so far this season, so the Gunners will need to address that problem quickly if they want to keep the home side at bay.
