Footybet Preview: Sunderland V Liverpool And Others
Footytubeblog (Blog) 2 years ago
Sunderland v Liverpool
Sunderland and Liverpool approach their meeting at the Stadium of Light on Saturday buoyed by their success in the third round of the FA Cup, so both will be looking to continue that form in the Premier League.

The Black Cats were 1-0 winners over Leeds in a repeat of the 1973 final and Liverpool turned the tables on AFC Wimbledon, who won the 1988 final against the Reds.

Liverpool's 2-1 FA Cup win in south London made it six games unbeaten for the Reds, so they are in the form to add to the 14 goals scored in those matches when they take on Sunderland.

Against Wimbledon, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was reminded of the talent of captain Steven Gerrard, as he scored both his side's goals.

Rodgers has been inclined to rest the veteran England international from time to time this season, but he might not be so keen this time as Gerrard bids for a successful finale to his Liverpool career before leaving for the USA.

His double against Wimbledon left him one behind Robbie Fowler's total of 183 goals for the Reds and two more goals against Sunderland would move him into Liverpool's top five scorers of all time.

Mario Balotelli will also be keen to impress Rodgers by getting on the scoresheet against the Black Cats and the Liverpool boss will have the in-form Raheem Sterling available as well, after he was rested for the FA Cup tie.

Meanwhile, Sunderland manager Gus Poyet will be hoping Adam Johnson maintains his fine recent scoring run. The winger has netted three of his four Premier League goals this season in his last five appearances.

Included in that sequence was the only goal in the away win over bitter rivals Newcastle and he was also on target against Manchester City and Hull City.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham
Harry Kane is a true testament to Tottenham's youth policy and the London-born striker is now repaying the faith shown in him by the White Hart Lane club.

Kane is the form forward in the Premier League with five goals in his last five games, including two in the recent 5-3 victory over leaders Chelsea.

Kane had started the season as a regular scorer in the Europa League and since manager Mauricio Pochettino also began selecting him in the Premier League, he hasn't looked back.

Heading into the London derby against Crystal Palace on Saturday, Kane has scored seven times in 16 Premier League appearances.

His double in the win over Chelsea moved Tottenham up to fifth in the table, which put them one point and one place above north London rivals Arsenal.

Stopping Kane from scoring will not be an easy task for Palace, who have conceded 30 goals in 20 Premier League games.

However, the main task for new manager Alan Pardew now is to lift the Eagles out of the relegation zone, where they currently lie, one point behind fourth-bottom West Brom.

Pardew will be looking to build on the buzz generated by his return to the club he starred for as a player and the 4-0 win at Dover Athletic in the third round of the FA Cup.

That looked an awkward tie on paper, but Palace sailed through it and Pardew will be looking for more of the same in his first Premier League fixture in charge of the Eagles since leaving Newcastle.

He will want early evidence that swapping mid-table Newcastle for a place in the bottom three was not a big mistake.
