Man City vs Sunderland – Unbeaten run to be continued
Manchester City have a 100 per cent winning home record against Sunderland in the Premier League and it is 1/2 that they extend this record this season.
Sunderland have lost all six Premier League games away at Manchester City, while Roberto Mancini’s team are also in fine recent form at Eastlands as they have lost just one of their last ten home matches.
Furthermore, they have taken 16 points from a possible 18 in their last six games at Eastlands.
Sunderland’s latest form is far less than impressive, taking just a solitary point from their last six matches.
However, Sunderland did beat Manchester City at the Stadium of Light earlier in the campaign and it is 9/2 that they complete the double over them.
Asamoah Gyan scored for Ghana in their midweek friendly draw against England at Wembley and will fancy his chances of following up with another goal at Eastlands.
Gyan scored past Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart with his stoppage-time equaliser and it is 5/2 that he does so again at any time in the 90 minutes for Sunderland.
But based on current form, Sunderland may run into difficulty scoring against Manchester City.
Sunderland have failed to find the target in any of their last three fixtures, while Manchester City have kept clean sheets in seven of their last ten home games.
It is 1/1 in the Premier League odds that Manchester City keep another clean sheet against Sunderland, while it is 6/4 that they win to nil.
