Football predictions for: Sunderland vs Manchester City


Team News

  • After earning such a hard-fought point against Chelsea last time out it wouldn't be surprising if a number of players were suffering from a little fatigue but Gus Poyet will be keen to reward those that performed so well at the weekend.
  • In turn the Uruguayan could field an unchanged side, though Jozy Altidore certainly made an impact from the bench on Saturday.
Manchester City
  • Martín Demichelis will return to the starting XI at the expense of Eliaquim Mangala, who is suspended after his sending off at the weekend.
  • David Silva is likely to continue to miss out but could be back in contention in time for the weekend.
  • Vincent Kompany was forced to limp off against Southampton, reducing City to 9 men on the day, and he is also likely to miss out for the trip to Sunderland, with Dedryck Boyata potentially in line to start.
  • However, Bacary Sagna could also come in and do a job for the side, as he has at centre-back with Arsenal in the past.
