Citizens Cardiac Arrest

SUNDERLAND V MANCHESTER CITY

Two teams with more money than sense and both have the potential to crash and burn.

Roy Keane has signed enough mercenaries to annex the rest of the north-east, and for a few months at least they should be hungry to impress before the enthusiasm inevitably wears off.

Team spirit is likely to be high after last week’s win at White Hart Lane, and although forced into extra-time in the Carling Cup it will have given the players a chance to gel.

City were atrocious for 88 minutes in Thursday’s match in Denmark, and this game will come quickly with only a three day gap.

The return of Shaun Wright-Phillips could provide a spark but they have looked vulnerable away from home in recent times and will do well to take anything from the Stadium of Light.
