Exciting survival battle in English Premier League is set this midweek when bottom two seat, Sunderland facing up against Stoke City, that are only four points above their opponent. Playing at Stadium of Light, the Black Cats are targeting for nothing other than three points as only that is the only result that can aid their mission in moving away from relegation trouble.
Similar target also being setup by Stoke though as their current position isn't actually providing any comfort from that relegation danger, so grabbing a negative result will definitely put them closer to that bottom seat. Failing to win their latest two Premier League matches, Stoke are keen on ending that bad period this midweek as it could be their past chance, considering the quality of the opponent they're facing.
Sunderland temporarily got themselves away from that bottom three seat as this midweek they grabbed an important home win over Stoke. The only goal in that game was netted by one of their star this season, Adam Johnson, who scored on 17 minutes. Not only lasted until half time break, that strike turned out to be the match winner as no more goals were scored up till the final whistle was blown.
