West Brom vs Sunderland
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 21st January 2017
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich.

The struggle continues for David Moyes and his Sunderland side as they will be traveling to Hawthorns this weekend to face West Bromwich Albion.

West Brom still found themselves in the top half of the table after their humiliation at White Hart Lane last week. Harry Kane’s Hat-Trick with McAuley’s own goal completed the 4 goal Humiliation. They are now 8th in the table with 29 points and zero goal difference, they are hoping to avoid a 3rd successive defeat this week.

Things seem to have turned worse for Sunderland in the past weeks, they have been without a win in their last 4 Premier League games. Also Sunderland have conceded at Least 2 goals in their last 4 Premier League games. The good news is they have found the net in each of their last 4 games but they have been unable to outscore their opponents. A win in this game will take them out of the relegation zone depending on results elsewhere.
