The Black Cats take on the Canaries at the Stadium of Light.

Check in to Sunderland vs Manchester United

Preview

A group jolly to Cheltenham for Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland squad was cancelled this week. With the club without a win in six games, having collected two points from a possible 18 and perched six points above the relegation zone, this seemed sensible. But Wearsiders will be heartened by Norwich’s poor form, Chris Hughton’s side having recorded one win in 10 matches. Sunderland will be eager to put one over the former Newcastle manager, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle next on the fixture list. (Guardian)

STAT-ATTACK

Head-to-head

The home side have won this fixture in each of the last eight league meetings. Norwich were the last away side to win, back in August 1997 in a second-tier match.

Sunderland’s 3-0 win in the corresponding fixture last season is the only one of the last 16 league meetings which hasn’t been drawn or settled by a one-goal margin.

Sunderland

Sunderland have only taken two points from the last 18 available.

They were winless in their last eight league matches last season, falling from eighth to 13th position.

Martin O’Neill’s side have gained just five points from losing positions – only Fulham (four points) have fared worse.

Their next four fixtures after playing Norwich are at home to Manchester United, back-to-back away games against Chelsea and Newcastle, and a home fixture with Everton.

Steven Fletcher has scored seven opening goals in the Premier League this season, more than any other player.

Norwich

It’s just one win in 12 league games for Norwich, although they have only been beaten once in their last six matches (W1, D4, L1).

The Canaries have failed to score in six of their last eight league games. They have a league-high six goalless draws this season.

QPR were the only side prior to the weekend to have scored fewer Premier League goals than Norwich, who have managed 27.

Chris Hughton’s side have only earned one point from their last five away matches, and won just one of their last 16 league matches on the road since April (W1, D7, L8).

Norwich were awarded their first penalty of the season last weekend against Southampton but Grant Holt’s spot-kick was saved.

Russell Martin is expected to make his 300th career league appearance.
