FOOTBALL : Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal - Goal highlights (2mins)
Arsene Wenger's men dominated the first half but only had Giroud's 11th-minute opener to show for it after the Sunderland defence was carved open by impressive £42.5million debutant Mesut Ozil.
Craig Gardner brought the hosts level from the penalty spot after a "foul" by Laurent Koscielny on Adam Johnson two minutes into the second half, then Steven Fletcher had an effort ruled out for offside.
Ramsey put Arsenal back in front with a superb volley in the 67th minute, before Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore thought he had equalised for the Black Cats.
Altidore was fouled by Bacary Sagna, but continued on after the referees whistle and bundled the ball over the line in the 70th minute, only to be brought back.
Three minutes later Ramsey was sent through by Olivier Giroud at the other end to wrap up a 3-1 win for the Gunners.
