The Gunners got back to their winning ways this weekend by defeating Sunderland 4-1 in the Barclay’s Premier League.
The past couple of games have been rough for the North London side, this is exactly what they needed after coming off a mid-week defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the champions league.
Olivier Giroud notched a brace for the home side after being left out of the sides previous two matches. A third goal was added by the Czech play-maker Tomas Rosicky, after the intricate and beautiful passes the gunners are know for, before a fourth was added by French defender Laurent Koscielny.
Arsenal needed the three points, as Chelsea and Manchester city both managed to squeeze 1-0 victories against their opponents this weekend. The road will get tough for the gunners as they will face Bayern Munich again, Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham and Everton. With just a hand full of fixtures left in the season the gunners need to find the form that saw them top of the table for more than half the season.
