Chelsea vs Sunderland Preview

April 4, 2013 By Samrin Hasib
Following an emphatic win over Rubin Kazan, Chelsea will welcome a Sunderland side undergoing a massive change.

Team News

Ashley Cole has a hamstring problem while Gary Cahill has a knee problem for Chelsea. Oriol Romeu is out for the season due to an ACL knee injury. Steven Fletcher has an ankle problem for Sunderland. David Vaughan could be back from a pelvis injury in time for this match. Carlos Cuellar has an ankle injury while Lee Cattermole has a knee injury.


Martin O’Neill’s era has ended. Paolo Di Canio has seemingly won over the team already as the players like his hands-on approach in training. Despite his political remarks in the past, the Sunderland players seemingly have no problems with him. O’Neill’s departure has almost lifted the team. Chelsea meanwhile is barely holding on in the top four. A few more unnecessary losses might see them drop out. However, can a Sunderland side fighting for its life be able to defeat Chelsea?
