Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will travel to Sunderland to play in the Stadium of Light for the 19th round of the Premier League on Wednesday night. Signing Jorgen Klopp as the new manager of Liverpool is showing to be a good decision by the Liverpool board. Liverpool is making progress every week and might be able to get in the race for a top 4 position which will be rewarded with a ticket to the qualification stage of the Champions League. Sunderland on the other hand is in the bottom region of the table and is in the zone of being relegated to the English Championship. Previous confrontations between Liverpool and Sunderland show that Liverpool doesn't get into problems often with Sunderland. We predict Liverpool to beat Sunderland 0-2. It's important for manager Jorgen Klopp to not let his players underestimate Sunderland.

The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation.
The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles.
