Sunderland vs Stoke City, Premier League Gameweek 36: Open Thread

For the second week in a row, Monday features a battle to avoid relegation. Last Monday, it was the 6-1 thrashing by Aston Villa against Sunderland. Today, it’s Sunderland at home against Stoke City.

A win for Stoke and they’ll be safe in knowing that they’ll be in the Premier League next season. A win for Sunderland and they’ll be one big step closer to safety, but it won’t be guaranteed. So who wants to bet on the final score being a draw, then?

For viewers in the United States, the game will be shown live at 3pm ET on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com.

Sunderland starting XI: Mignolet, Colback, Rose, Cuellar, O’Shea (c), N’Diaye, Larsson, Gardner, Johnson, McClean, Graham.

Stoke City starting XI: Begovic, Shotton, Wilson, Huth, Shawcross (c), Whitehead, Adam, N’Zonzi, Walters, Crouch, Jerome.
