Bournemouth should make light work of Sunderland
Sunderland's last hope of mounting a last-ditch survival push was extinguished by a 1-0 loss at Middlesbrough on Wednesday and the last rites could be administered by Bournemouth who look value to win at the Stadium of Light.
Anything other than a win leaves the Black Cats at risk of being officially relegated but they have lacked quality all season and star striker Jermain Defoe has tailed off - failing to score in nine games.
Bournemouth have their eyes on a top half finish and should prevail.

Lee Cattermole, Darron Gibson, Jack Rodwell and Jason Denayer are all nursing injuries and will be assessed.
Dan Gosling picked up a calf strain last weekend and will not be involved but no other fresh injuries have been reported.
Sunderland have won one of their last 18 fixtures.
