    Sunderland v Stoke City: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    Stoke City v Liverpool - Barclays Premier League

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

    Fresh off their momentous win against Man Utd in the Capital One Cup, Sunderland will be hoping to turn the tables in the Premier League. Adam Johnson has been terrorising defences recently and Vito Mannone has showed real class in goal.

    Stoke(4-4-1-1):  Butland, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Walters, Whelan, N’Zonzi, Assaidi; Adam, Crouch

    Stoke sit in 14th, just four points above Sunderland and last time out in the Premier League were beaten by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Charlie Adam showed his quality against Liverpool recently and will be a key man to watch against The Black Cats.
