Saturday, December 17, from 15:00, play Sunderland – Watford, a duel of round number 17 of the Premier League.
Sunderland comes after a very difficult week, during which time he suffered two consecutive defeats, so it remains in last place with 11 points, four lengths behind Middesbrough, the team in first place above the relegation line. Just days ago, “black cats” have played all the “Stadium of Light”, but had the misfortune to duel with Chelsea team against which succumbed 0-1. Moreover, Sunderland and is in last place in a ranking of the teams gathered points at home, their number is seven.
Lot Info: Lee Cattermole, Gooch, McNair, Rodwell, Watmore – injured.
Watford suffered a defeat in her last round, 0-2 away on “Ettihad Stadium” with Manchester City, so lost three times in the last four stages. At this time, Watford are 11th with 21 points, with a deficit of seven goals in the right goal difference. Cajoaca out again on a business trip in less than three days may have an influence on prestiilor so unconvincing’s Watford, who suffered three consecutive defeats to City (0-2), West Brom (1-3) and Liverpool (1-6).
Info lot: Catchcart, Kenedy, Mariappa and Pereyra are injured.
Sunderland (4-3-3): Pickford – Love – Kone – Djilobodji – Aanholt – Ndong – Denayer – Kichhoff – januzaj – Defoe – Borini
Watford (4-3-3): Gomes – Janmaat – Prödl – Britos – Holebas – Watson – Guedioura – Capoue – Amrabat – Deeney – Success
Watford lost the last three Premier League trips, cashing at least two goals in each of these parties. However, Sunderland’s performance was not convincing in the last round, but we must consider that at home scored at least one goal in five of the last six disputes on the “Stadium of Light”. All in all, I expect this match to be a balanced one, as in the last match, so a draw would be satisfactory in some way for both teams.
