    Premier League: Sunderland v Southampton LIVE!

    Probable teams…

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

    Gus Poyet may name an unchanged side for the visit of Southampton after the important away victory over Fulham last weekend. Ki Sung-Yueng is expected to continue in the support striker role with Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore competing for the main man upfront.

    Southampton (4-2-3-1) Boruc, Clyne, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw; Lallana, Cork; Schneiderlin, Rodriguez, Davis, Lambert.

    Mauricio Pochettino could also name an unchanged side for the Saints. Gaston Ramirez, though, will be pushing for a recall and could come into contention. Dani Osvaldo will serve the last of a 3-match suspension. Finally Victor Wanyama (calf) and Guly Do Prado (knee) remain sidelined through injury.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    One To Watch…

    Rickie Lambert (Southampton)

    Heavily linked with a move to West Ham, Ricky Lambert will want to prove he’s still got the minerals with the team where he made his name.

    Some stats to get your head around:

    Sunderland are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions against Southampton (W3 D3).

    Southampton are unbeaten in their last five league trips to the Stadium of Light (W1 D4).

    The Saints have scored exactly one goal in each of their last five trips to the Stadium of Light in all competitions.

    Sunderland have won fewer points at home in the Premier League this season than any other side (7).

    Southampton have won just one of their last seven Premier League away games (W1 D3 L3).

    Sunderland have lost only one of their last six Premier League games (W2 D3 L1).

    Since December 14th 2013, seven of Southampton’s eight Premier League goals have come from Englishmen.

    Southampton (9th position) are seven points adrift of 7th place but seven points clear of 10th place.

    Sunderland haven’t won successive Premier League games since last April.

    Artur Boruc has a saves-to-shots ratio of 81% in the Premier League this season, compared to 44% for Kelvin Davis and 38% by Paolo Gazzaniga.
