    Premier League LIVE: Sunderland vs Crystal Palace

    Probable Lineups:

    sunderland crystalpalaceSunderland (4-2-3-1): Mannone, Bardsley, Brown, O’Shea, Alonso, Bridcutt, Johnson, Colback, Ki, Borini, Jozy Altidore

    Gus Poyet rolled out a second string side against Hull City in last weekend’s FA Cup tie and got thrashed 3-0, but it gave him the chance to rest several key players in the Black Cat’s quest to survive the drop. Mannone, Brown, Alonso, Johnson, Colback, Ki, Borini, and Altidore all return to the fray for the visit of fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.

    Crystal Palace (4-1-4-1): Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Parr, Jedinak, Joe Ledley, Puncheon, Dikgacoi, Bolasie, Murray

    Palace would have been disappointed with their 1-0 home loss against Southampton last weekend but now make the daunting trip to a Sunderland side looking to make amends for their Capital One Cup final loss to City and FA Cup exit at the hands of Hull. The Eagles also have the second worst away record in the league, so expect Tony Pulis to start a defensive lineup and hit Sunderland on the counter. Glenn Murray should lead the line for the injured Marouane Chamakh, with Thomas Ince also an option.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Crystal Palace progressed to the Play-Off final in the 2003-2004 season with a dramatic 3-2 win over Sunderland.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Adam Johnson has gone off the boil recently, with his price dropping from 7.1 back down to 6.5 in the Official Fantasy Premier League game.  But with a rest last weekend, we’re backing the English winger to be amongst the goals once again in the Black Cat’s fight for survival.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Sunderland have won just one of their last seven Barclays Premier League home games (W1 D2 L4).

    Palace have scored just six goals in 13 Barclays Premier League away games this season, fewer than any other team in the top tier.

    The Eagles have won two and lost 18 of their last 26 Premier League away matches (D6).

    None of the last 10 league meetings (inc. playoffs) between Sunderland and Palace has ended as an away win (eight home wins and two draws).

    Only Crystal Palace (four times) have been relegated more often than Sunderland from the Premier League (three times).

    Palace’s total of 23 goals in league and domestic cup this season is lower than any other side in the top four divisions.

    Sunderland are the joint-lowest home scorers (13) while Palace are the lowest away scorers (6) in the Premier League this season.

    Sunderland have not lost three successive Premier League games since October 2013.

    Sunderland have let nine points slip from winning positions at home, more than any other side on their own patch.

    Palace’s Mile Jedinak is one of only three outfield players to play every minute of every game this season.
