Manchester City vs. Sunderland, 7:45pm UK time.

Positioned third in the table with 70 points (22w, 4d, 6l), Manchester City slipped against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, losing three important championship race points to the Reds.
The Citizens will want to do everything in their power not to lose any points from now on, seeing that Chelsea jumped one position in front of them with 75 points after beating Swansea 0-1. On the surface this might look too easy for City, as they host one of the weakest teams in the league this season, Sunderland.

Sunderland is currently 7 points away from safety and with today's fixture and trips to Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge in the near future, things are looking quite grim for the team.
