Match Commentary

96' FULL TIME Van Persie does it for Arsenal with a wonderful double but the Gunners were far from polished. Still, it is a vital three points for them.
95' Santos bombs forward and nearly finds Arshavin before Song fouls Vaughan and Sunderland hoof it long.
94' Szczesny shields the ball from Ji and wins a goal kick so he can waste some time.
