Former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT that Sunderland are worst team in the Premier League at the moment.
Sunderland are currently 17th in the league table with 26 points from 30 matches, just a point above the relegation zone.
“I think it’s going to be very, very difficult [for QPR to stay up],” Redknapp told talkSPORT's Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on Tuesday. “But, having said that, I think Sunderland are bang in trouble.
“My honest opinion, I think Sunderland at the moment are the worst team in the division. QPR went there and beat them 2-0 just a few weeks ago. I think they’ve got it all on, Sunderland. I think it’s going to be tough.”
It is an interesting comment from Redknapp, and based on current form, the Englishman is probably right.
The Black Cats have picked up just two points from their last six Premier League games and are at the foot of the form league table.
The 4-0 humiliating defeat to Aston Villa at home saw Gus Poyet lose his managerial job at Sunderland, but his replacement Dick Advocaat failed to guide the team to victory at West Ham United at the weekend.
However, there is still a good chance that Sunderland will be able to survive the drop the Premier League.
Leicester City look doomed for relegation, and teams like QPR, Burnley, Aston Villa and Hull City are very much in danger.
