Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland: Vote for Player-Ratings/MotM!

After a stodgy, stultifying first half in which it looked like Arsenal were the relegated club happy to play out a rather-pointless match, the second half offered just enough of a glimmer of a hope that something could still be salvaged of the season. Just past the hour, Alexis struck twice to bring his tally to 112 goals in 143 appearances for the Arsenal. Credit Sunderland, long-since relegated, for their stubborn display. Our inability to break them down is a familiar story, and it took some rather relentless pressure to pick that lock. Still, it's a positive result, and one that keeps open the door on finishing in the top-four and earning a Champions League. More on that later. For now, let's give the lads what they deserve in the poll below the fold!
