Sunderland vs Stoke City
On the other hand, Stoke are having a below average season and they are only within 2 points of relegation zone. As such, they have to take each match seriously, otherwise they will drop to the relegation zone. However, their style of play is not impressive under Mark Hughes. They are the league's worst team away from home, having scored only once in their last 6 match on their travels. Besides, they put out a strong team when they played Chelsea in the FA cup 2 days ago. As such, they are very likely to have tired players for this game. Robert Huth (knee), Matthew Etherington (calf) and Andy Wilkinson (foot) are out for this match.
Conversely, Sunderland had the luxury of making several changes for their FA cup match since they played an easy opponent. Poyet made 10 changes to his Sunderland team for the 1-0 home win over Kidderminster Harriers in the FA Cup on Saturday, and now he will be expected to put his strongest line up who are fresh for the visit of Stoke.
Sunderland are undefeated in their last 8 home matches against Stoke in all competitions. And now, they have really been impressive under Gus Poyet and with home advantage, I can see them win this important game to get out of the relegation zone.
Bet on Sunderland win.
