Team News: Sunderland v Arsenal – Song Handed Gunners Start

Alex Song has been handed a starting place ahead of French midfield maestro Samir Nasri for this afternoon’s Premier League tie with Sunderland.

Song, who only recently recovered from a knock to his hip, replaces the 21-year-old who is surprisingly dropped to the bench.

Other than that, the team is unchanged from the 4-0 mauling of FC Porto with Theo Walcott and Denilson continuing in midfield.

Confirmed Starting XI

Sagna – Toure – Gallas – Clichy
Walcott – Fabregas – Song – Denilson
Adebayor – van Persie


Fabianski (GK), Nasri, Vela, Silvestre, Djourou, Bendtner, Eboue
