Positive approach may backfire for Bradley's Swans
Bob Bradley thought Swansea were up and running after the 5-4 Crystal Palace win, but he was brought crashing back down to earth by the 5-0 loss at Spurs last Saturday.
The manner of the defeat – they lost the shot count 28 to one – was alarming.
The Swans will try to be positive against Sunderland but could leave themselves open at the back and that may prove disastrous with predatory Jermain Defoe on the premises.
Sunderland draw no bet

Sunderland Duncan Watmore (knee) misses the rest of the season, but Jason Denayer and Steven Pienaar have recovered from illness and Fabio Borini (thigh) could be back in the squad.
