Arsenal moved to second in the Premier League table thanks to a 3-1 win over Sunderland with Olivier Giroud scoring for both teams. Arsenal’s preparations for the game wasn’t ideal as they saw Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez miss out on the game due to injuries.
This meant that Joel Campbell got a start for the Gunners and he took his chance by scoring the first goal before Giroud scored for Sunderland. The Frenchman then gave Arsenal the lead by scoring at the right end and Aaron Ramsey scored the third in the 90th minute.
We look back at the encounter and share the five talking points from the game.
Joel Campbell should play more
Joel Campbell was on the end of his time at Arsenal, but the injuries have given him a chance of showing what he can do. His performance against Zagreb showed what he can do and he was doing it again against Sunderland. He got the first goal which got Arsenal going, even though they weren’t playing the best football. Campbell didn’t do much apart from that, but he should get a few more chances and if he keeps on scoring, he could well be at Arsenal next season as well.
