Sunderland are again safe for another season in the Premier League after holding Arsenal scoreless at the Emirates.
Costel Pantilimon made a strong save on Theo Walcott late and stood up to Arsenal pressure for the entire match as Sunderland got the point they needed for survival. Sunderland conceded possession for most of the match and we're content to absorb Arsenal pressure. For the most part they handled it well. Olivier Giroud forced a couple of good saves from Pantilimon and Walcott forced the lanky goalkeeper to go low to his right to save a hard-driven ball in the late going. The draw leaves Hull City and Newcastle as the only two candidates for relegation heading into the final day of matches on Sunday. May 20 - 4:43 PM
