Our football match prediction:
As expected, West Bromwich Albion suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, but the team remained in the top half of the Premier League standings. The Baggies occupy eighth position in the table and it is more than obvious that coach Tony Pulis is doing a great job with the Hawthorns outfit. WBA are tough to beat at home and they are definitely capable of beating relegation-threatened Sunderland in Saturday’s football match. Salomon Rondon is eager to add more goals to his account and the Venezuela attacker is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts against Sunderland. The Black Cats, who are desperate to secure the top flight survival, suffered a heart-breaking 3-1 loss to Stoke City at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run to five games in all competitions. Sunderland’s displays on the road leave a lot to be desired and we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Jonny Evans):
Originating from Belfast, Jonny Evans is one of the most famous football players from the new generation of the Northern Ireland national team, although numerous injuries prevented the centre-back from showing all he’s got. Coming through the famous Manchester United youth academy, Evans was promoted to the senior set up by club icon Sir Alex Ferguson and he would go on to lift four Premier League trophies with the Red Devils, making over 130 league appearances for the club before moving to West Bromwich Albion in 2015. During his time at Old Trafford, the defender usually played back up to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, but made quite a few appearances in important games, including 31 Champions League outings. As soon as he was given a chance to impress at Manchester United, Evans was called to the Northern Ireland national team and he has made over 40 appearances on international stage since 2006, helping his country qualify for the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. 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. Sudnerland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Prestson North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
