West Bromwich Albion v Sunderland (October 17)
Sunderland are struggling for survival in the Premier League and so are West Bromwich Albion, which means that Saturday’s Premier League game at The Hawthorns will not be pretty to watch.
The Black Cats have a new manager in Sam Allardyce, who specialises in keeping teams up.
A win against West Brom at The Hawthorns is probably beyond Sunderland, but they can certainly pick up a point.
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Sunderland
Sunderland v Newcastle United (October 25)
Sunderland always tend to win against Newcastle United, but could it be different this time?
Past records do not matter and the form book goes out of the window during such matches, but the Black Cats should be able to eke out a narrow win as they are at home for this Premier League encounter.
Sunderland 1-0 Newcastle United
Everton v Sunderland (November 1)
Sunderland are in dire form at the moment, but things could change under new manager Allardyce in the coming days.
The Black Cats will probably not aim to collect all three points at Goodison Park, while Everton will want to win.
A draw is not entirely impossible, but the Toffees should be able to pick up all three points from this game.
Everton 2-0 Sunderland
Sunderland v Southampton (November 7)
Southampton are a much better team than Sunderland, and Ronald Koeman’s side should be confident of winning at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland 0-2 Southampton
