Manchester City look to return to the automatic Champions League places as they travel to the Stadium of Light for a tricky Premier League match against Sunderland. The Black Cats are bottom of the table and have not played well at all since the start of the season, but they held Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool to draws recently and can cause problems to any team.
City are on fire, but anything can happen. This will be a really fun game.
