Robbie Savage predicts Sunderland v Tottenham, lays into both teams

Robbie Savage

The pundit has been previewing Sunderland's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Robbie Savage believes Sunderland and Tottenham will play out a score draw on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham travel to the Stadium of Light in the Premier League this weekend with both teams yet to register a top-flight victory so far this season.

And pundit & former midfielder Savage has criticised both sides, Sunderland for their poor defending and Spurs for their inability to score.

His prediction, though, is one the Black Cats faithful may prefer to hear. After suffering embarrassing defeats in their first two league clashes of the campaign, the fact Sunderland have been backed not to lose against Tottenham is some feat.

They are at home, of course, and the north London side have struggled for goals so far this season. But something we can assume Savage probably isn't even aware of is the fact Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to unleash August signing Heung-Min Son in the final third for the first time. Can he make the difference for the White Hart Lane outfit or will Savage be proven right?

A third option, of course, would be Sunderland's first win of the Premier League season - which would definitely put some pressure on Pochettino and co.
