The Black Cats’ host Vincent Kompany’s Burnley at the Stadium of Light, as they try to bounce back following a disappointing defeat against Burnley’s arch rivals, Blackburn.
Last time out, Sunderland lost to Blackburn 0-2 thanks to goals from Bereton Diaz and Shaun Wharton.
Burnley drew 1-1 against Birmingham in their last game, which seems to be a common occurrence for the visitors.
The Clarets sit 3rd in the league and they have just 1 defeat so far this season.
Vincent Kompany will be hoping to turn all of their draws into wins as soon as possible, as they have drawn 8 of their first 15 games.
Burnley striker, Jay Rodriguez has started the campaign in top form, scoring 7 goals in 13 games so far this season.
Jack Clarke is Sunderland’s current top scorers, behind the injured Ross Stewart, on 4 goals and he will be desperate to add to that tally on Saturday.
The Black Cats’ start the game in 13th place, but with the table being so close, with a victory, they could move as high as 8th.
Sunderland will once again be without a recognised striker, as Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms remain injured.
Aji Alese is also out for a few weeks, after he was on the end of a crunching challenge against Blackburn on Tuesday.
Score – Sunderland 2-2 Burnley
Scorers – Jack Clarke and Amad Diallo
