Zenden ruled out of Arsenal match

Sunderland midfielder Bolo Zenden will miss the club's trip to Arsenal on Saturday after suffering a calf injury.

The 34-year-old Dutchman has been ruled out of the game at the Emirates Stadium after picking up the injury during the warm-up at Everton last weekend, and becomes the latest name to join manager Steve Bruce's casualty list, which has cost him the services of Fraizer Campbell, Michael Turner, Lee Cattermole, Danny Welbeck, David Meyler and Nedum Onuoha for spells this season.

Zenden, who has made 23 appearances this season hopes to return for the 20 March visit of Liverpool.
