Man City V Sunderland

Sunderland play Manchester City this Monday night at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Sunderland are still searching for their first away win of the season they face an inform City side which has only lost once this season and that was against Chelsea.

Manchester City Team News:

The good news is that Micah Richards is out with a bruised knee.

The bad news is Martin Petrov has recovered from his injury.

Player to watch: Elano Blumer

The Brazilian has been in fine form recently he has been on fire lately to become City`s top scorer.

Our defence will have to keep a close eye on him if we are to get something out of the game.

Match Facts & Stats

In our last six league games against City in Manchester we have Won 1, Draw 1 and Lost 4

Match Prediction:

It will be a tough game against an inform City team. If our players play as well as they can we should at least get a draw and who know we might even nick all three points. I think we will draw this one 1-1

Tough task for you guy's tonight. City won all their six home games since SGE took charge. Settle for a point down there wouldn't you?

Would definitely settle for a point. This is the first game in a long time that I don't feel as if we will get anything out of it. Having said that I havent been right much when thinking we were going to win the last few games so maybe we will come away with 3 points just to surprise me (here's hoping!). I honestly think we'll lose 2-1, hope for a 1-1 draw and pray for a 1-0 win.

Good luck in tonights game fellas - Here in Pompey we could do with you getting at least a point so we can retain our place in the top four - It's gonna be tough as they have a crackin' home record but the way you played against Weest Ham showed that you can break defences down - City will be sore after the spanking they got from Chelsea so be careful and hopefully Mr Keane will guide you to a memorable point or three !

I am sure Roy Keane will get a very warm reception at Man City!!

Keano was slated by all accounts - Think the Manchester City fans are probably jealous - who would you rather have Kean or Sven ... I know where I'd put my money ! - Never mind fellas you put up a good show by all accounts and if you keep doing that (as you dd against West Ham as well) you'll soon be collecting the points - Let's hope you have enough to stay up and fingers crossed Derby, Bolton and Wigan will take care of the relegation spots for you.
