Improving Black Cats can tee up a thriller
David Moyes is banking on maximum points at home to Watford to trigger Sunderland’s faltering survival bid and will be encouraged by his team’s performance in a 1-0 loss at Chelsea.
The Black Cats forced a couple of smart saves out of Thibaut Courtois and will look to be much more attacking against the Hornets.
But they may also struggle to contain the visitors, who welcome back Troy Deeney into their line up.
Both teams to score
