Michael Owen predicts Sunderland v West Ham

Sunderland will face West Ham United at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Newcastle United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that West Ham United will win against Sunderland away from home this weekend.

Sunderland will take on the Hammers at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and Owen has backed Slaven Bilic’s side to pick up all three points.

“It would be ironic if Sunderland were the first side to put a blemish on the Hammers’ perfect start to the season on the road given the London club have already won at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City,” the former England international wrote on Betvictor.com.

“I have been very impressed with the Irons’ this term and can only see another three points for Slaven Bilic’s side.”

West Ham will be firm favourites to win against Sunderland, especially as they are in better form.

The Hammers are third in the Premier League table at the moment and will fancy their chances of picking up all three points at the Stadium of Light.

However, Sunderland will not be easy pushovers, and the players will be giving their all to win at home.

The Black Cats are at the foot of the league standings, but manager Dick Advocaat will surely want his team to raise their game.

An early goal for Sunderland could make for a very interesting match.
