Sunderland

  • Victory would give the Black Cats back-to-back league wins at home for the first time since May 2014.

If they lose, would Palace be considered as relegation contenders? Whilst they won't go down, their form has been absolutely rotten for the last couple of months and whilst the teams below them are pretty gash, they must be looking over their shoulders a tad nervously. Sunderland will be well up for it and will have to win games like this one to have a chance of staying up.

We're already contenders.

Our only saving grace is Bolaise coming back and adding some much needed balance to the side. Lose tonight and alarm bells start ringing big time.

I think Sunderland have been decent lately, certainly not pushovers like they were at the start of the season. I reckon they'll get a win.
With Bolasie back though Palace will be a far better side on the attack. But I never fancy their strikers to score.

Great goal by Borini, who'd even think of shooting from there?
