Sunderland (4-4-1-1): Simon Mignolet; Craig Gardner, Titus Bramble, John O'Shea, Danny Rose; Jack Colback, Lee Cattermole, Alfred N'Diaye, Stephane Sessegnon, Adam Johnson, Steven Fletcher.

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Carlos Cuellar, Phil Bardsley, Kader Mangane, Seb Larsson, David Vaughan, Danny Graham

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Wojciech Szczesny; Carl Jenkinson, Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal; Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere; Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott; Olivier Giroud

Substitutes: Vito Mannone, Abou Diaby, Thomas Rosicky, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Carl Jenkinson, Ignasi Miquel.

And so it came to pass that Koscielny was healthy, and lo, the Arsenal Crisis was over before it began (possibly). (Knock on wood). Check that. They just removed him from the lineup. Jenkinson comes in.

Okay then.
