John Barnes predicts Sunderland v Chelsea outcome, goalscorers

Sunderland and Chelsea will face each other in the Premier League on Saturday.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes has predicted on that Sunderland and Chelsea will play out a draw this weekend.

Sunderland will take on Chelsea at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Black Cats are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season and have to win against the Blues at home.

Chelsea have nothing to play for, but Barnes expects Guus Hiddink’s side to pick up a point at the Stadium of Light.

“I’ll go for a draw here,” the former England international wrote on “I think Sunderland have enough about them to get a point, although we don’t know if that will be enough for them come the end of the season. Goalscorers – Jermain Defoe and Diego Costa.”

Sunderland will fancy their chances against Chelsea, and one should not be surprised if the Black Cats do win against the London outfit.

Sam Allardyce’s side are under pressure, but they do have the fans behind them, and that could prove to be crucial.

The Black Cats will head into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Stoke City away from home at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League.
