Have your say

SUNDERLAND may have made a poor start to their Premier League campaign – but can they kick-start this season with a win at home to Arsenal?

The Echo is today giving supporters a chance to see The Lads take on Arsene Wenger’s side.

We have 20 pairs of tickets up for grabs to the Black Cats v Arsenal game at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, September 14.

Black Cats manager Paolo Di Canio was active on transfer deadline day this week, signing Liverpool’s Fabio Borini on loan, as well as capturing the signature of Andreas Dossena.

Stephane Sessegnon was, however, sold to Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Arsenal were also busy as they brought in German international midfielder Mesut Ozil for more than £42million.

Sunderland are yet to record a victory in league competition so far this season, with defeats against Fulham and Crystal Palace sandwiched by a draw against Southampton.

To be in with a chance of scooping an adult and child ticket package for the game, which kicks off at 3pm, answer the following question:
