Sunderland v Liverpool Match Prediction

The home side have been poor in recent Premier League games. They are letting in goals at an alarming rate and the visitors will fancy their chances of claiming a win in the north east. The Reds have not been in great form, but will hope that the win against Leicester will build some momentum. For me this game should be an away win.
