Arsenal began Premier League life without Robin van Persie with a frustrating home draw against Sunderland this afternoon.

The Gunners dominated in terms of possession and chances at the Emirates Stadium, but they were unable to find a way past Simon Mignolet in the visitors' goal.

Santi Cazorla was voted as man of the match on his debut and the Spaniard created a host of chances for his teammates.

However, fellow new signings Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, who replaced the Germany international midway through the second half, both failed to record a shot on target.

Giroud should have won the game in the dying seconds, but he fired a gilt-edged chance high into the crowd from close range.
