Bent insists Sunderland capable of shocking Arsenal

Sunderland striker Darren Bent insists they can shock Arsenal this weekend.

Arsenal go into the game as heavy favourites, but leading scorer Bent says the Black Cats are capable of claiming what would be a big result.

"It's a massive game for us and probably a lot of people won't give us much of a chance going to play Arsenal at home," he told safc.com.

"But if we go and set our stall out like we did at Manchester United earlier in the season there's no reason why we can't go there and get something.

"Barring Chelsea we haven't done too badly against the top four. If we show resolve like we have done in the last few weeks we can hold them off and create some chances of our own."
