Sunderland take on Middlesbrough on Sunday 21st August, 2016, with kickoff at 13:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
After last term we know that literally anything is possible in this game, and for Middlesbrough that will be a constant mantra as they attempt to first stay up and then do whatever else is possible. As for Sunderland, they had their manager stolen and got an upgrade out of it, so the season really hasn’t started that badly with all things considered.
They do, however, have no points from one game right now, so they’ll want to see some improvement under David Moyes before too long. If he oversees a win then the fans will be delighted, and it’ll kick-start their season.
