Sunderland v West Ham (8pm, SKY)
[dropcap]P[/dropcap]rofit for the column of 11 points yesterday, despite the main bet on the draw going badly wrong!
The correct score ‘savers’ included 4-0 Liverpool at a juicy 16/1.
The final Premier League match of the ‘weekend’ is at the Stadium Of Light (8pm, SKY) where Sunderland play host to West Ham.
Sunderland are in desperate need for three points having only taken one point from a possible 15 in their last five matches. They also have the worst home record in the whole league.
That has left them in the bottom three and even a win tonight will not lift them out of that zone.
West Ham might look safe in 11th but they are far from safe. They are only eight points away from the bottom three themselves and Hammers fans were far from happy midweek when a large section of ‘supporters’ booed Sam Allardyce after their team’s WIN against Hull.
Not sure there will be too many goals in this one – the reverse fixture finished 0-0 in December.
