Whoever wins this tie must feel they have a serious chance of going on to the final at Wembley.
Under Martin O'Neill Sunderland have become a vastly better footballing side than the one who represented the club earlier in the season. The most improved would surely be Irish youngster James McClean - proving a very exciting prospect - and Stephane Sessegnon, who is finally firing on all cylinders and finding the back of the net regularly. In front of their own fans Sunderland will attack Arsenal - a side who have conceded 3+ goals on six occasions this season - and can likely take advantage of their weakness in defence.
Arsenal are always a side who try to get forward and possess an immense attacking threat through the likes of Robin Van Persie - the Premiership's top scorer - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and Mikel Arteta.
These two teams met at The Stadium of Light last weekend and Arsenal won 2-1. This bet seems fairly solid and can be a winner at odds of 1.67 with Bet 365 - 9pts.
