Arshavin fails to inspire Arsenal

Published Add your comment

Andrei Arshavin's debut failed to help Arsenal conjure up a goal as they played out a frustrating goalless draw against Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium.

The Russian saw an early low shot fly just wide, before Marton Fulop beat away his angled drive.

Sunderland battled well and were worth a share of the spoils as the Gunners again could not break down a stubborn defence and missed a chance to close the gap on the top four.
