The Black Cats will lock horns with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
In London ahead of our game with Chelsea! Looking forward to seeing & hearing all the amazing @SunderlandAFC fans who are making the trip.— Sam Allardyce (@OfficialBigSam) December 18, 2015
Sunderland will head into Saturday’s game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to promoted outfit Watford at the Stadium of Light.
Allardyce’s side started the month of December with a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in North London.
The Black Cats are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment and are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.
Chelsea may be at home for Saturday’s game, but the Blues can no way be considered as favourites.
The London outfit are just a point above the bottom three and are in a wretched run of form at the moment.
