Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal
Goals: Olivier Giroud, 10' (0-1), Craig Gardner penalty, 47' (1-1), Aaron Ramsey 67' (1-2), Aaron Ramsey 75' (1-3).
Arsenal won their first game with Mesut Ozil in the team after a terrific battle with Sunderland. Ozil claimed an assist just 10 minutes into his Gunners career with some great control and vision, well-dispatched by the in-form Olivier Giroud.
The away side should have been out of sight by half-time, but a quick-fire penalty after the break changed the momentum of the match. A second-half brace from Ramsey sealed the win, though a controversial refereeing decision denied Jozy Altidore an equaliser that would have made it 2-2.
Sunderland: Westwood, Celustka, Colback, Roberge, Diakite, Vaughan (Gardner), Mavrias, Ki, Johnson, Fletcher, Altidore.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Sagna, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Ramsey, Wilshere, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud.
