EPL Match Preview : Sunderland vs Liverpool 

Sunderland recently sacked their new manager Paolo Di Canio and currently they do not have a manager but several names have been linked like the former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is one of the favorites, reliable sources claim that Sunderland have made as approach towards the former Italian international. Former Brighton and Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet is also a favorite to replace Di Canio. But would it be a very easy job for the Black Cats to beat Liverpool even at the Stadium of Light? The reds faced early exit from the league cup as they were beaten by Manchester United last Wednesday. The biggest plus point for their squad is Suarez’s return. He could not ignite for his team in the last game, but we all know who he is. What to expect from this game The last time these two teams collided at the Stadium of Light the game went to a 1 – 1 draw. There will not be anything to surprise if the same picture repeats this season too. Without Coutinho, the balance of the midfield could not being up properly for the reds. And unfortunately, no one is being able to take his position. Sunderland does not have a steady manager right now, we have mentioned all the linked manager names who are possible to take over. It would be one of the most interesting of the sixth game week as both teams need to win badly but both are struggling. Players to watch out for Jozy Altidore (Sunderland) : The American international will surely start in the next game as Sunderland’s loan man from Liverpool is not allowed to play against his actual team. Altidore was benched in the last game and Borini was introduced, same picture can’t repeat. The 23 year old performed really very good every time he was given opportunity by his manager. Luis Suarez (Liverpool) : The Uruguayan international is currently considered as one of the best forwards of the world. The 26 year old scored 30 goals last season and his international performance for his country was also marvelous. It would be a very difficult job for the Sunderland’s fragile defense to deal with Suarez. Predicted Lineups Sunderland : It would be not be very easy to predict the lineup for the home side as their manager is not set yet. Still, three changes are likely as the injured man Steven Fletcher could be replaced by Ji Dong Won, Fabio Borini has to be replaced and Jozy Altidore would possibly replace him, Emanuele Giaccherini is likely to be replaced by Sebastian Larsson. Liverpool : Two changes are certainly for the away side, as Enrique could return in the first eleven and Mamadou Sakho could be restored to his center back position as Daniel Agger has sustained a minor knock and doubtful for the next game. Asaps might get benched Suarez is likely to be introduced. Sunderland vs Liverpool Result Prediction We predict a victory for the home side. They could an early goal and could add one more in the late stages by a counter attack. Predicted score line : Sunderland 2 – 0 Liverpool Predicted scorers : Altidore x2
