Strong 4-3-3 line-up: Predicted Liverpool side to play Sunderland

Here is how we predict Liverpool and Sunderland will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 26th November 2016 at 15:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool

Odds: Liverpool 1/7, Draw 7/1, Sunderland 16/1

Liverpool welcome Sunderland to Anfield this weekend for their latest Premier League encounter.

The Reds are flying high in the table, just a point behind leaders Chelsea with 12 matches played, and while Liverpool will be disappointed to have dropped two points against Southampton last time out they have the perfect chance to get back to winning ways on Saturday.

That said, Sunderland will have other ideas, and after recording back-to-back victories either side of the international break David Moyes’ men will be aiming for three in a row.

Sunderland are still three points away from safety and have a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but at least they have some confidence after six points from six.

In early team news, Liverpool are without Danny Ings while Adam Lallana is rated at only 25 per cent to recover from a groin injury.

As for Sunderland, they cannot call on Paddy McNair after his recent injury blow, while Lee Cattermole, Fabio Borini and Jack Rodwell are also out.

Papy Djilobodji is suspended but Jason Denayer is given a 75 per cent chance to be ready if called on.
