liverpool vs sunderland

Liverpool :

Liverpool are coming from a dominant 3-0 win over Queen’s Park Rangers . Liverpool will be looking for back to back wins in the premier league for only the second time this season . After a decent run of games , Liverpool have been showing some lack  in consistency  after their loss against Aston Villa and Stoke . If they lose another one here , then it will be very difficult for liverpool to bounce back and close in the gap against the 4th placed tottenham , which is now 8 pts clear of liverpool . Sturridge will be announced tomorrow and will be registered and he may make his debut against Mansfield Town in the F.A cup tie . Luis Suarez loves playing against sunderland and stevie g also coming to fine form , wigan has to stop these two if they are to leave with any chance of a clinching a point from Anfield .

Sunderland :

After back to back victories, Sunderland were defeated by Tottenham last time out, The Black cats have failed to win any one of the last 14 trips to Anfield. Sunderland will be without John O’Shea and  they will also be missing skipper Lee Cattermole, who didn’t play all December, and defender Wes Brown, who is yet to feature for the club this season. Fletcher will be supported by Adam Johnson, Seb Larsson, Sessengoon and James Mclean from the midfield.  Impressive Simon Mignolet will be the goal keeper Sunderland . It will be an emotional return for liverpool’s Jordan Henderson as he faces his former club .

Probable Lineups :

Liverpool :

Reina
Johnson, Agger, Sktel, Downing
Gerrard, Lucas, Allen
Suso, Suarez, Sterling

Sunderland :

Mignolet
Gardner, Cuellar, Bramble, Kilgallon
McClean, Sessegnon, Colback, Johnson
