The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event, with coverage beginning at 7pm.

Sky Sports subscribers will also be able to watch the match online via the website or Sky Go app.

What’s the team news?

The likelihood is that Arteta will look to rotate his side somewhat against their League One opponents, but the Spaniard could have a couple of enforced absences to deal with too.

So far two players have tested positive for Covid in the Gunners’ camp - midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga and defender Pablo Mari - so neither will be available, while ex-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is still not being considered for selection after being stripped of the armband recently.

What are the latest odds?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Gunners are strong favourites to win this one.

At the time of writing, SkyBet price a home win at 2/9, with a Sunderland upset priced at 11/1.

A draw is priced at 11/2.
