With eight teams remaining in the League Cup, Sunderland are the last team remaining that isn’t in the Premier League, following a penalty shootout victory over QPR. But they’ll face quite the test traveling to face an in form Arsenal side. Sitting in third place in League One under new ownership, there seems to be light in Sunderland’s future following their tumble out of the Premier League and that’s something that this cup run shows, even if it comes to an end Tuesday.

Here’s are storylines, how you can watch the match and more:

Storylines

Arsenal: Mikel Arteta enters this match with likely the deepest Arsenal squad at his disposal and the team on a three-game winning streak during which they’ve allowed one goal. Even with heavy rotation expected for this match, Arsenal should be strong enough to see off Sunderland with Emile Smith Rowe and Rob Holding expected to be included. It’s a match that shows how far both teams have come which will make it quite the watch.

Sunderland: One of the best teams putting the ball in the back of the net in League One, Sunderland have scored 37 goals in their 25 matches so far led by Ross Stewart and Nathan Broadhead. They’ve also improved the defense only allowing 1.18 goals per game. While this will be a challenge, Sunderland are the experienced sort of side that can cause a “cupset” if given too much space.

Prediction

Emile Smith Rowe runs the show as Arsenal win a tricky match Pick: Arsenal 2, Sunderland 1
