Arsenal vs Sunderland prediction
It seems a given that Mikel Arteta will rotate his side due to the festive fixture pileup, but with no European football this season, the Spaniard is also surely desperate to go as far as possible in this competition and as long as his side are on it they should prove too good for the League One outfit.
Arsenal to win 2-0.
