Man City vs Sunderland - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Manchester City, with only one point from their previous two games, take on Sunderland aiming to keep up the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

The most surprising aspect of their defeat to Chelsea and the draw against Norwich City is that Manuel Pellegrini's side failed to score in either match, having found the net almost at will for most of the season. The slight dip in form has seen them slip to third place, and some observers are now beginning to doubt their title credentials.

Following an impressive run of results, Sunderland slid back towards the bottom three on Saturday thanks to a home loss to Hull City, who, helped by Wes Brown's early sending off, completely dominated proceedings. The Black Cats may have won their last four home games against Man City, but avoiding defeat here will be seen as a major bonus.

Yaya Toure will play for Man City after the FA decided to take no action over an incident involving Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel. However, Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho and Samir Nasri are still out.

Sunderland will be without Brown as well as fellow defender Carlos Cuellar, and goalkeeper Kieren Westwood.
