Arsenal 3-1 Sunderland: Vote for Player Ratings and MotM!

Arsenal struggled to break down a spirited Sunderland side who spurned several gilt-edgedscoring chances. Petr Čech came up with numerous vital saves, and it was Joel Campbell who first put Arsenal ahead. However, as we've seen happen too many times, we conceded a sloppy goal just before halftime, this time as Giroud tried to block a cross only to score an own-goal. In the second half, though, Arsenal showed greater confidence and drive, with Giroud put us ahead again with a headed goal. Just when you thought it was over, though, Ramsey found a third goal after a helter-skelter scramble through the Sunderland box. All in all, the result was desperately needed if not entirely earned, but it sends us to second, two points behind, of all clubs, Leicester. Who'd've thunk it? Anyway, get down to the poll to rate the lads!
