The ten strikers Sunderland fans fear most

Sunderland may have earned themselves a glimmer of hope with an unexpected win against Bournemouth last weekend but David Moyes’ boys still face one heck of a fight to avoid relegation this season.

Indeed, the Black Cats have claimed just five points from their first eleven games and conceded a staggering 21 goals in the process – the joint-second most of any side in the Premier League after equally relegation-threatened Hull City.

And Sunderland’s disturbing defensive displays have cooked up some food for thought here at FootballFanCast towers, particularly in regards to those Premier League stars, past and present, with the most potent returns against the Wearsiders.

Assisted by our chums at Transfermarkt, here’s a rundown of the ten strikers with the best scoring records versus Sunderland.

Some familiar names amongst Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United fans all feature – but there’s a fair few surprises along the way as well.
