Sunderland and Liverpool are at opposite ends of the mini-midfield table and will see each other as fair game as they attempt to change their fortunes.
Sunderland have struggled to score goals, drawing an astounding 11 of their 20 Premier League games. Meanwhile, Liverpool have only lost once in their last 7 Premier League games, though they have also drawn 3 of them. Additionally, Raheem Sterling has been given an official break by the club and will be unavailable for today's game courtesy of his holiday in Jamaica.
With the two sides drawing 0-0 earlier in the year and key players out, a draw seems rather inevitable, although in the Premier League you never know what will happen.
