Predicted Chelsea v Sunderland line-ups

To be played on Sunday 24th May 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Chelsea will be looking to end their successful season on a high when they take on Sunderland at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho’s went down 3-0 to West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns on Monday and will be determined to bounce back.

The Blues have nothing to play for, but they will certainly want to pick up all three points at home today.

Sunderland have also nothing to play for, as they have secured Premier League survival.

Dick Advocaat’s side’s goalless draw with Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Wednesday ascertained their Premier League status.

The Black Cats have won just one of their 13 previous games on the final day of a Premier League season, but they have only lost one of their last seven league matches.

If Chelsea fail to win this afternoon, then they will be only the second champions in the last 12 seasons to end with fewer than 86 points. Manchester United won the title with 80 points in 2011.
