Fulham vs Sunderland - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Fulham can move further clear of the bottom three with a win over Sunderland, who are currently propping up the rest of the Premier League.

The London club will be looking for a second vital league victory already this year, having beaten relegation rivals West Ham United on New Year’s Day to move out of the drop zone. Head Coach Rene Meulensteen’s job now is to get more consistency out of his players, and the best out of key man Dimitar Berbatov, as the squad Fulham have is too good to be battling to stay in the top-flight.

Gustavo Poyet must be immensely frustrated that his Sunderland team are still rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, as they have been throughout his time in charge. Performances have been strong, but a series of mistakes - most recently against Aston Villa on New Year’s Day - have been their downfall, although they stand just 90 minutes from a place in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley.

Brede Hangeland is the only major injury concern for Fulham, as the captain continues to be sidelined by a sciatic nerve problem. Maarten Stekelenburg may be in line to return in goal.

Sunderland defenders Modibo Diakite and Valentine Roberge could come back into the team, but another centre-back, Carlos Cuellar, is still inavailable.
