Stoke City vs Sunderland
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 15th October, 2016,
Kick-off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Britannia Stadium.
Stoke City come into this game with lots of problems. From their opening 7 games they have no wins and lie in 19th place because they have managed one more draw than their opponents Sunderland who are rock bottom.
This is a huge ‘six pointer’ then when 19th plays 20th and even though this is a bottom of the table game there will be a lot of interest on this outcome. Stoke manager Mark Hughes has been with the club for 3 years now and that could be coming to an end unless his team have a good October.
The visitors need all three points too and David Moyes the Sunderland manager looks to have made the wrong move in accepting the role after taking some time out of management.
The only good news for Stoke is that they have drawn their last two games which included a great if lucky effort when they got a 1-1 result against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Stoke City vs Sunderland: Prediction
The Black Cats have been scoring goals and striker Jermain Defoe is in decent form. These two clubs are very close and it’s only a matter of time before we see a win. Both clubs then are searching for their premier win this season. But we should expect a very cautious and slow start to proceedings.
