Sports Mole previews Sunderland's Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday.

Sunderland will be looking to move out of the relegation zone when they host Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

Paolo Di Canio's side are yet to win a league match this season, having lost two and drawn one of their opening three games.

The Black Cats went into the international break off the back of a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.

Arsenal have won their last two Premier League games, including a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby two weeks ago.

Mesut Ozil is in line to make his Arsenal debut following his deadline-day transfer from Real Madrid.

Di Canio could hand debuts to new signings Fabio Borini and Andrea Dossena, while John O'Shea is suspended following his sending off against Palace.
