David Moyes will continue his mission with Sunderland this weekend when they host Stoke City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Sunderland haven’t been able to leave the bottom since the beginning of the season. However they are hopeful of doing that this weekend as they are just a point behind Crystal Palace outside the zone. They are 18th in the table with 15 points to their name, tied on same points as Swansea City in the 19th position.

Meanwhile, Stoke City’s poor League form was halted with a 2-0 win against Watford in their last Premier League outing. They are now 11th in the table with 24 points, and are on same point with the last team in the top half if the table. A win in this game could get them into the top half depending in results elsewhere.

The game would be a tough one for both teams as they are in a poor shape at the moment. David Moyes’ side are win-less since Boxing Day with 2 draws and 2 defeats while their opponents have won once I’m their last 7 games, they have drawn twice and lost 4 games.

The game could go either way but we are expecting the two teams to get on the score sheet. We are also expecting inflow of goals in this one, the game could see up to 5 goals. Our predicted score line is 2-4 in favour of Stoke City.
