Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our first Sunderland vs Stoke City prediction is for both teams to find the back of the net. Sunderland have conceded in all but one of their previous five matches and have failed to score in two of those five, but the Black Cats do still have the incredible attacking talent of Jack Clarke. Stoke have scored in their last three matches and have kept just one clean sheet in those three matches.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Sunderland vs Stoke City prediction is for the total number of goals in this fixture to be fewer than 2.5. Three of Stoke City's previous four league matches have seen fewer than 2.5 goals scored with four of Sunderland's previous six matches failing to exceed 2.5 goals scored.
