Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal try to make amends for their disasterous performance in the CL against AC Milan with a trip to Sunderland`s Stadium of Light with a view to reaching the FA Cup quarter finals.

It`s only 7 days since the two sides faced each other with The Gunners squeezing past the finishing post with a last minute winner from the departed (gone back to New York, not snuffed it) Thierry Henry.

This really is last chance saloon. We must win to keep alive any hope of silverware this season, but more importantly for me, to put to bed that hideous 4-0. With games vs Liverpool and Spurs on the horizon, our season really could depend on the next 90 minutes.
