Southampton vs Sunderland by Rahul

Sunderland have been struggling completely this season, and they will look to rotate the squad to give their team some rest to try and steal some points in the Premier League; where survival is more important than focussing on a cup run at this stage. When Sunderland played Southampton earlier at St. Marys they stole a point despite being down to 10 men; and the Saints will want to erase that game from their existence. That was the only point that Sunderland managed to take away on the road; losing all other games in the league. Sunderland are expecting Victor Anichiebe to lead the line along with Steven Pienaar in a largely rotated squad; and with them out of form; your an expect it to be a long night.
I am actually expecting the Saints to build on their recent good form and dish out a strong win against a Sunderland team who are missing several players like Borini, Cattermole, Mannone, Larsson and Januzaj through injury. I am backing Southampton to win on the Asian Handicap here.
