Sunderland have won four of five and have given themselves achance at survival in the league. Gus Poyet has revitalised the club and the team, every player seems re energised and the blackcat fans have been terrific especially in the Stadium of light. Adam Johnson, Fabio Borini, in particular have come into form of late. Johnson has been spectacular and Sunderland fans have to be impressed with the re emergence of the former Manchester City player who will surely cemented himself a place on the English World Cup squad if his recent form continues.
Southampton are unbeaten in eight games and have solidified their position in the league with that great run, sitting only three points behind Manchester United the Saints andmanager Pochetinno have to behappy with their recent form. Lallana, Lambert, Shaw and Rodriguez have been having terrific years thus far. Shaw in particular has been lighting up the field and is attracting attention from Chelsea, Manchester United and other big European clubs with a £20million price tag being bandied about.
This is one of those games that jumps out at me, I like the both teams to score market here. I think Southampton have been excellent of late but equally Sunderland are on a really good run themselves. The two teams met in the league a couple of weeks back in Sunderland and that game finished 2-2. I actually wouldnt be surprised if we seen a similar scoreline here tomorrow. But my tip is to take both teams to score and cash a winner. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
