Our match prediction:
Following three heavy defeats to the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, Stoke City will be aiming to put an end to the negative trend when they square off against Sunderland on Saturday. The Black Cats are desperate to avoid relegation and given that they are level on points with 18th-placed Norwich City the Britannia Stadium clash could be crucial for the visitors in their battle for survival. Sam Allardyce’s men did remarkably well to hold Arsenal to a goalless draw at the weekend and the fact that the team suffered only one loss in last seven league matches is giving the fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Stoke. The Potters have little to play for in Saturday’s football match and we predict that the Black Cats will pick up all three points from the game. You should bear in mind that Sunderland recorded a 2-0 win over Stoke City in the reverse fixture.
