Betting tips and match preview | Barclays Premier League
Sam Allardyce’s men come into this match in good form after drawing against Stoke 1-1 in the last game, they will need to go one step further in this huge fixture if they are to ultimately avoid relegation.
They have suffered just the one defeat in their last six matches and that was a 2-0 home defeat against Leicester City who have since been crowned Premier League Champions after an incredible season.
Key to their hopes of survival is Jermaine Defoe, his goals have proved absolutely crucial for Sunderland and their survival hopes and between now and the end of the season it will be a deciding factor in whether they survive in for another season in England’s top flight.
They will be wary of facing a Chelsea side who have been playing some excellent football of late and enjoyed an excellent 2-2 draw against Tottenham in their last match on Monday.

Chelsea Playing For Future
Guus Hiddink’s men have very little to play for in the Premier League aside from pride but many are playing for their places with incoming manager Antonio Conte bound to be keeping one eye on events from afar.

They have a mixed record in their last six matches, with two of every result but their draw against Tottenham on Monday night will feel like a win, not only did they come from 2-0 down to draw level but in doing so they were able to ensure the Premier League crown went to Leicester City.
Their remaining fixtures see them face Sunderland, Liverpool and Leicester on the final day with the Blues looking to hand over the title to Claudio Ranieri and his charges.
