Shouldn't the translation be "the guests are coming ON Sunday"?

Technically, yes, but I would say that "the guests are coming Sunday" is also informally correct.

I think "ON Sunday" is more typical in UK English and just "Sunday" in US English. Correct me if I am wrong! (I'm British and I say "ON Sunday".)
So I think both answers should definitely be accepted.
