Monday night football will see Sunderland travel to Crystal Palace with both teams in desperate need of a win. Both Sunderland and Crystal Palace are relegation threathened even this early in the season. Sunderland are really struggling to put in any sort of performance at the moment with the team capitulating 8-0 to Southampton two weeks ago. Gus Poyet is trying to find the balance that works best for the side but was let down badly by the players against Southampton. This is an away game that Sunderland feel they can win and on paper with Wickham, Rodwell, Fletcher, Cattermole and Larsson I would tend to think that Sunderland have the better players.
Neil Warnock has done alot of complaining about referees of late with the team losing to Chelsea and havaing a player sent off in the wrong in Warnocks opinion. In the West Brom game the referree gave a last minute penalty to the home side and Palace probably had good reason to feel hard done by. Selhurst park will be rocking tonight but the question will be can the home side get a win? Warnock will be reliant on Zaha,Campbell, Doyle , Gayle for the goalscoring up front although Doyle has struggled somewhat to fit in at Palace and I think he might be on his way in January.

Interesting game this one. Contrary to popular opinion I think there will be some goals in this one, both teams need three points and I think they will get out and go for it from the off. I'm taking both teams to score at evens.
