Sunderland v Southampton
Gus Poyet's Sunderland will have some renewed optimism following an emphatic win at Craven Cottage last week beating Fulham 4-1.
The victory means The Black Cats are just one point from safety which is a much more positive outlook from Di Canio's reign.
Southampton, on the other hand, are currently safely in the top half of the league after a home win against West Brom but their Chairman Nicola Cortese has put the club into turmoil following his departure.
Current boss Mauricio Pochettino may well leave the club too and rumours are circulating that key players could leave this month.
Prediction: Sunderland 1-1 Southampton
