Sunderland v Southampton: Black Cats a must bet at a huge price

Ryan Bertrand admits his side face a tough task to stop Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe

They have faced 76 attempts on goal at home this season; only Hull (77) have a worse record in the Premier League this season.

Sunderland must wait two weeks before they are next in action against Everton, with Moyes adding: "Like everybody else we don't have a game next week so we'll be in the same situation".

"Sofiane is not available for this game and we will see for the final, for his recovery and his work".

Sunderland, bottom of the Premier League, hope to take advantage of opponents whose minds appear to be elsewhere when they take on League Cup finalists Southampton on Saturday.

On Martin Caceres: "For the moment it is hard for me to comment on this because he has not signed for Southampton".

He has had the luxury of week without a game to prepare for tomorrow's trip to Sunderland, while he has a staggering 15 days to then get ready for the EFL Cup final against Manchester United. Januzaj's midfield colleague Jack Rodwell (also hamstring) has not been as fortunate and will not be involved.

Claude Puel's side have lost six of their last seven league games.

In what can only be good news for the Ireland national side, Shane Long has hit something of a run of form at Southampton. Southampton's defence is one of their strengths (though undoubtedly a weaker unit without van Dijk), but I'd still be a backer of unders if forced to have a bet in the market. Nathan Redmond and Dusan Tadic could both return for this tie.

Their only victory in the last eight Premier League meetings came at home in March 2015, and the Black Cats did not keep a clean sheet in any of those games - and lost 8-0 in October 2014.

"Manolo Gabbiadini has goals in his first two games - he's a striker, a technical player of quality who can finish well".

Southampton are Sky Bet's 21/10 favourites for the victory with Sunderland up against odds of 11/4 for another win, while the draw is priced at 23/10.

Manolo Gabbiadini continued his fine start to life at the Saints by netting a brace in the first half.
