Sunderland put the final nail in the coffin of Chelsea’s title bid last season and ended Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten record in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese manager was not happy after that game and this weekend his side come to the Stadium of Light with another unbeaten record to preserve.
This time it is much more likely that the record will remain intact as The Blues have been almost unstoppable this season.
The Black Cats are undefeated in three games they but will be struggling to get anything from this game due to their lack of goal scoring prowess and Chelsea’s ability to score goals for fun.
Sunderland are still missing Emanuele Giaccherini, Billy Jones and Patrick van Aanholt but could welcome back Ricky Alvarez to the squad. Unfortunately for Gus Poyet’s side the Premier League’s number one danger man, Diego Costa, is fit and Chelsea are only missing young defender, Nathan Ake.
Chelsea steam-rolled Schalke on Tuesday night and Sunderland will probably have to give the best defensive performance of all time to keep out the current league leaders.
This should be an easy three points for the Londoners and could well be a landslide victory too.
Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa.
Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Schurrle, Remy, Drogba.
