Sunderland take on Stoke City in the third gameweek of the Premier League. Sundeland who are at the bottom of the table without a single point until now will look forward to get at least a point from the home match.
Swansea City on the other hand have gone off to a flying start. After holding champions Chelsea for a draw in the first game they registered a win in their second game last week. They would target all three points against a weaker Sunderland side and improve their position in the league table.
