Black Cats can add to entertaining clash
Kopites are getting royally entertained this season and more goals are expected here. Liverpool have dropped just two points at home points – the fewest in the top flight – and they will form the cornerstone of many weekend accas. But the Reds’ defensive record is the worst of the top five teams. Sunderland carry a threat with Jermain Defoe and Victor Anichebe and can find the net.
