In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 11 of their 30 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Sunderland come motivated to this match after a victory away, by 0-1, against Crystal Palace. The home team present many quality on the air play, thanks to the height of their players.
To note that the team protect very well their advantage, putting many agressity on each ball contest.
Furthermore, Sunderland are conscious of their weaknesses, so, they choose, many times, to pull back their lines to support some defensive weaknesses.

Stroke come motivated to this match after a victory away, by 0-1, against Southampton. 
In spite of being crossing a good moment, Stoke are a team slight aggressive on the pitch. They present many difficulties, mainly, on finishing the opportunities that they create, and in the air play. 
So, against a strong opponent on the air play, the tactical approaches will be preponderant. 

Confirmed Lineup: J. Butland, R. Shawcross, G. Johnson, P. Wollscheid, E. Pieters, X. Shaqiri, G. Whelan, C. Adam, J. Walters, Bojan, M. Arnautović.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match will be both teams score at least one goal. Looking to the defensive difficulties of both teams, it's foreseen that the score opportunities occur in large number. 
Furthermore, the historic of the direct clash aim at an open and balanced match. 
It's known that Stoke crosses a better moment, however, Sunderland are also motivated by the result of the last journey.
