And in Manchester itself, Sunderland has already prevailed once in the recent past: On May 3, 2014, the team achieved a hard-fought 1-0 victory. Most of the time, however, the record champions didn’t show any nakedness and won one victory after another against Sunderland.

Sunderland AFC: The constant struggle for survival

Times are getting rougher and more difficult for Sunderland every year. Since the 14th place in the table in the 2013/14 season, the club has been facing a steady downward trend. 16th place in the 2014/15 season, 17th place last season. And this time, too, it's not about a place in the secured midfield, but once again about staying up in the league. This is clear to everyone in the club and probably the reason why coach David Moyes is still allowed to lead training. Despite the bad series at the beginning of the season. It was not until the eleventh match day that AFC Sunderland finally had the first three in the bag - all previous games mostly ended in defeat, rarely in a draw. Slowly but surely, the team seems to be recovering. On December 3, Sunderland was able to secure a 2-1 win at home against the reigning champions.

Shinji Okazaki's goal in the 80th minute came too late for Leicester City. There was another sense of achievement last Saturday. Again in front of their home crowd, Sunderland was able to prevail against the guests of Watford FC. Patrick van Aanholt scored the goal of the day in the 49th minute.

  • Swansea City 3-0 Sunderland AFC
  • Sunderland AFC - Chelsea FC 0-1
