Manchester City take on Sunderland on Saturday 13th August, 2016, with kickoff at 17:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.
The final game on the first day of the new season will see Manchester City take on Sunderland, and Pep Guardiola oversee his first match in the Premier League. The man best described as a furiously intense and angry football visionary will have his work cut out with Conte at Chelsea and the circus across town, but should still fancy this as a nice easy way into the winner’s club.
As for Sunderland, there know there is no pressure on them here, and might enjoy it more for that reason. With David Moyes in charge they certainly have cause for optimism.
