But Arsene Wenger and the club’s supporters were made to sweat throughout thanks to Pickford’s sensational form.
The 23-year-old pulled off a string of stunning saves to keep Arsenal out, and had fans raving about him on social media all evening.
With Sunderland now officially relegated to the Championship, it’s really difficult to envisage a player of this quality not playing in the top-flight next season:
That Pickford is unreal! ??

How come David D'gea made it as the goalie of the season ahead of Jordan Pickford?

What do you think of Pickford? Is he a superstar in the making? And where would he be suited best should he choose to leave Sunderland?
