Sunderland boss Poyet: Vergini to start against Arsenal

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is ready to start Santiago Vergini against Arsenal.

Poyet is backing Argentina international Vergini to come through a demanding full debut at Arsenal.

He said: "Santiago would have played last week against Manchester City if it hadn't been postponed.

"But the idea is to give him the chance to start a league game, so he will probably play at Arsenal. I watched him in the cup games; he hasn't had any problems.

"He is ready to start in the league."
