SUNDERLAND v MANCHESTER CITY BETTING PREVIEW

Sunderland enter this match on the back  tow consecutive defeats to Southampton and Everton, and are currently three points off safety. They recorded a home draw with Liverpool and Tottenham and a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace, and should not be underestimated. Anyway, the Black Cats have scored in just two of their last eight Premier League outings. The corresponding fixture last season saw Manchester City win 1-0.

David Moyes will be without Jason Denayer, who is ineligible to face his parent club. Papy Djilobodji is available following suspension and should slot back into the starting lineup while Jan Kirchhoff is close to a first-team return.  Adnan Januzaj and Fabio Borini could operate out wide behind the lone striker Jermaine Defoe, with Didier Ndong, Darron Gibson and Sebastian Larsson perhaps starting in the middle of the park. The likes of Paddy McNair, Lee Cattermole, Duncan Watmore and Victor Anichebe remain all sidelined through injury.

Manchester City are enjoying their best run since they began the season with 10 consecutive wins, the only blot on their record in the last seven matches being a 0-0 draw away to Huddersfield in the FA Cup. Anyway, Guardiola's men had no problems in the replay match as they hammered the Terriers 5-1. They sit 3rd in the Premier League, one point behind 2nd placed Tottenham but with one game in hand (the derby against United). In terms of direct encounters, the Citizens have won their last 6 matches against Sunderland in all competitions scoring a total of 18 goals.

Aleksandar Kolarov and Vincent Kompany are both available for the trip to the Stadium of Light. Pep Guardiola, who is without long-term injured pair Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus, is expected to bring David Silva, Bacary Sagna and Willy Caballero into the starting XI. Yaya Toure is likely to start in the defensive midfield role, behind the four-man midfield of Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Leroy Sane. Of course, Sergio Aguero will spearhead the attack.
