    Fulham v Sunderland: The Alternative Preview

    Dimitar Berbatov
    Probable teams…

    Fulham (4-4-1-1) Stekelenburg; Riether, Senderos, Amorebieta, Riise; Dejagah, Parker, Sidwell, Dempsey; Taarabt; Berbatov

    Fulham could hand a start to former Craven Cottage favourite Clint Dempsey, whilst Patjim Kasami, Alex Kacaniklic and Darrent Bent will also be seeking recalls having started in the cup last weekend. With Riise expected to continue at left-back, Richardson could vie with Dempsey for a role on the left wing, though Meulensteen also has the option of deploying Dempsey behind Berbatov in attack

    Sunderland (4-4-1-1) Mannone; Bardsley, Brown, O’Shea, Alonso; Johnson, Cattermole, Colback, Giaccherini; Ki; Fletcher

    Sunderland will be buoyed from their win against Manchester United in the Capital One Cup and they will need to carry that momentum in to the match against Fulham. Gus Poyet’s side sit bottom of the pile in the Premier League and are desperately chasing 3 points on Saturday.

     

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    The day Sessegnon banged this one in for Sunderland….

     

     

    One To Watch…

    Ki

    Ki has been a crucial player for Sunderland this year, bagging that winning goal against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup. One to watch…….

     

    Some stats to get your head around:

    Fulham have kept six clean sheets in their last nine Barclays Premier League meetings with Sunderland (W4 D4 L1).

    Sunderland have won only two of their nine previous Barclays Premier League trips to Fulham (D2 L5), though both victories ended 3-1.
