Predicted Arsenal Lineup To Face Sunderland: Gabriel Paulista To Start

Predicted Arsenal Lineup vs Sunderland

Arsenal take on Sunderland in what could be a huge game for both clubs, Arsenal need to win to keep the pressure on Manchester City and hope to get automatic qualification for the UEFA Champions League, Sunderland though have much more bigger concerns as they need to win to ensure they stay in the Premier League and that is something which could be playing on the mind of Dick Advocaat as he thinks about facing a team who has been on form for most of the second half of the season.

Koscielny
Koscielny may miss the game

We look at the predicted starting line-up for the Gunners in this crucial tie in the Premier League.

David Ospina

The Colombian has become the number 1 goalkeeper for Arsenal and although he has looked a little shaky at times, he should continue in goal for the Gunners before the FA Cup final comes up.

Nacho Monreal

A surprise package this season, Monreal has become one of the most consistent players at Arsenal and should keep his place in the starting line-up.

Per Mertesacker

He might be a little slow, but Arsenal have no choice but to field him as Koscielny could miss out on this game.

Gabriel Paulista

Paulista has been impressive for his new club and could be in line to face Sunderland and hopefully claim a spot in the team for the final.

Hector Bellerin

Bellerin has been amazing for Arsenal this season and has really been one of the standout performers for the Gunners.

Francis Coquelin

The tough tackler in midfield, Coquelin seems set to become a first team player for next season as well and will hope to do as well as he has done all season.

Santi Cazorla

The maestro should continue his role as the midfield controller and he has been great at this role for Arsenal this season.

Aaron Ramsey

Ramsey has been put back into the starting line-up but some of his ability seems to be missing, he really needs to pick up his form for the Gunners and this game could be the one that does it.

Mesut Ozil

The German really has to get his act together at the club, he has shown glimpses of his ability but he has to do it on a consistent basis if he is to keep his place in the starting line-up for the final of the FA Cup.

Alexis Sanchez

The star of the season for the Gunners, he will be looking to regain some form before the much-awaited defence of the FA Cup in a couple of weeks’ time.

Olivier Giroud

The Frenchman would be looking to end the season with a few more goals, he has been injured for quite a while this season but will be looking to end it with a bang.
