Poyet ready for massive test
Sunderland, Last updated:Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is to use the clash with Arsenal this weekend as the perfect preparation for next week's Cup final.
The Black Cats travel to Arsenal on Saturday ahead of a return trip to London next weekend for the Capital One Cup final with Manchester City.
Both games are massive for the club, for differing reasons, and Poyet says the trip to the Gunners is perfect preparation for the Wembley date.
Poyet said: "It's going to be a massive test, and I think there is no better way to prepare for the final because the stadium is similar and the trip is the same.
"People have asked me before, are you going to look for something that Bayern (Munich) would do? Come on we are not Bayern Munich.
