...
Sunderland will be happy to take a point which leaves them just out of the relegation zone, while Arsenal would be disappointed not to win considering the amount of possession they had. Overall, the Gunners did not look dangerous in front of goal and lacked the spark needed to gain them the three points.
...
FULL-TIME: Sunderland 0-0 Arsenal.
...
90+3': Arsenal pass the ball patiently around the box like there isn't just a minute left... Sunderland regain the ball and are happy to hold onto it.

...
86': Walcott again whips the ball into the box and it's cleared out, again.
...

83': Sub - Jack Wilshere replaces Ozil, making his first appearance in 8 months.
...

81': Jack Wilshere is about to make his first Arsenal appearance this season.
...
78': Mannone runs out of the penalty area to clear the ball but is left stranded, Walcott runs at the ball in an attempt to shoot but strangely enough runs straight past it. A counter attack by Sunderland has Watmore cross the ball to an open Defoe who is offside.

...
67': Defoe gets away from Mertesacker and attempts to pass the ball across goal to an open Borini, but his pass is poor and it's deflected out for a corner. Wasteful.
...
66': Iwobi runs at the Sunderland defence but crosses the ball straight to the keeper. He's not having the best of days.
...
65': Arsenal hit on the counter attack but Giroud is again offside! Arsenal will need to do better if they want to win this.
...
64': Cattermole releases Defoe one vs one with Cech who attempts to lob the ball over the keeper, but it goes wide.
...

...
55': Iwobi attempts a volley at goal which is completely mishit and travels across the box to Ramsey who hits a feeble shot straight to the keeper. Arsenal seem to be trying to walk the ball into the goal as they dominate in possession but fail to register a shot on target. The players seem hesitant to shoot.
...
53': Van Aanholt plays Khazri into the box but Cech comes out to save. Sunderland looking much more dangerous this half.
