In the image of his opponent, the Sunderland set is going through a critical period in this championship and is currently struggling to get out of the last positions in the league table. It is important to emphasize that the visitors disputed the first division in the transata season.

The completion of the created plays is also a very weak point of this formation.

It seems that the foreign trainer has all the players at his disposal.
