Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Sunderland welcome West Brom to the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon, with Sunderland looking to bounce back after their last weeks defeat.

They come into this match on the back of a devastating 3-2 defeat, which saw them go 2-0 up and lose in the 94th minute.

Goals from Jermain Defoe (39 & 60), gave Sunderland a wonderful start and an excellent chance to win the game.

Palace didn’t lie down with Joe Ledley (61), James McArthur (76) and Christian Benteke (90 +4) saw Alan Pardew’s side complete an incredible victory.


Crushing Defeat For Moyes

That defeat will have been crushing for a Sunderland side yet to register a win, to go 2-0 up and to lose in the 94th minute will have had a huge impact on the players.

Sunderland need to start winning games, this is the fourth season running that they have started in such a terrible manner.

The players need to have a long look at themselves, they are very poor for 75% of the season and manage to save themselves at the last minute.

This could be the season that they finally come unstuck.

Sunderland Surprising Favourites

Sunderland will go into this match under increasing pressure to register their first win at the seventh attempt.

They face a West Brom side that have enjoyed a decent start this season, they will be looking to use home advantage.

Their record against the Baggies is even, they have played 116 times, they have won 41, lost 43 and drawn 32.


West Brom In Decent Form

West Brom travel to the Stadium of Light after a hard fought draw against Pulis’ former employers Stoke.

The game didn’t come to life until the 73rd minute, when Joe Allen opened the scoring at the Bet365 Stadium.

A goal in the 91st minute from Salomon Rondon rescued a point for the visitors, following on from their excellent win against the Hammers.

Both sides cancelled each other out, with Stoke enjoying more possession but West Brom more clinical with two shots on target.

Premier League Form Mixed

West Brom have enjoyed a mixed start to the season, they have taken 8 points from a possible 18.

They have won two matches, drawn two matches and lost two games as well and they have to find a level of consistency if they are to improve.

Tony Pulis’ side have a goal difference of +1, only three sides have a better defensive record than the Baggies.

Baggies Underdogs

Despite their decent start, West Brom are the underdogs at the Stadium of Light, with struggling Sunderland the favourite with the bookies.

This will be a tough fixture for West Brom, with Sunderland expected to react strongly after last weeks agonising defeat.

The Baggies have the better recent record, they are the only side to win in their last four encounters.


Both teams are 10/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Sunderland are Jermain Defoe at 4/1, with Adnan Januzaj at 6/1. For West Brom, Salomon Rondon is at 11/2 with Nacer Chadli and Saido Berahino at 6/1.

The last time that these two sides met they drew 0-0 and the odds of the same result are 7/1.
