When one team in the last seven games has the effect of two wins and five losses, one can not just say that they are in good shape, but Burnley win games in which they expect to have to do, and those are duels at home against the team plane itself or something a little better. The above-mentioned two victories were achieved precisely against Bournemouth and Middlesbrough, and before that against Crystal Palace, then rivals from the bottom of the table and all at home. Away Burnley poor with only one draw and seven losses, but now they are back at home, the opponent was again the extent and so rightly hoping the new good results.
They announced that they are in good form and some defeats, such as duels with West Ham thing and Tottenham, when they lost minimal and lacked a bit of luck for a point. It was expected that coach Dyche perhaps for the last round game against Middlesbrough to make a few changes, but he missed only Lowton due to yellow cards. Flanagan played well in that position and so far may remain in the starting line-up, in which you could jump and Defour because of injury problems Marney and striker Vokes, who as a backup to the rescue in the last round when he came on.
Probable lineups Burnley: Heaton – Flanagan, M.Keane, Mee, S.WARD – Boyd, Defour, Hendrick, Arfield – A.GRAY, Vokes
From the beginning of the season Sunderland in trouble and in the relegation zone, with the recently even play well, compared to what they showed in the first ten rounds when they beat anyone. Eight defeats and two draws them logically nailed to the bottom of the table with which they are moved only after they finally entered two consecutive triumph. Later they entered two more and now have a total of four, but that’s not enough to be above the relegation zone. The guests do not play as bad as Burnley, provided that they are not much better with only one win and one draw.
The last three triumphs are still made at home. Two rounds have mastered Watford with 1: 0, while expected in the last round they could not avoid defeat at Old Trafford with a 3: 1 Manchester United. It is interesting that they did not change the coach, although they had long crisis period but David Moyes is still on the bench. A lot of the players on the injured list, and after the victory over Watford were left behind Love and Januzaj, as they jumped B.JONES and Larsson. It is difficult to say whether it will now be further changes.
Probable lineups Sunderland: Pickford – B.JONES, L.KONE, DJILOBODJI, van Aanholt – Larsson, Denayer, Ndong – Anichebe, Defoe, Borini
