Relegation dog fight: Chelsea vs Sunderland
One of the two relegation dog fights in round 17 of the English Premier League will see Chelsea fight it out against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.
After a poor start to the season the champions find themselves at the wrong end of the table with only 15 points and one point above the relegation zone.
Sunderland under new manager Sam Allardyce are trying to pull themselves out of the relegation zone.
Manager-less Chelsea lost their last match 2-1 away to Leicester and their last home match was also a loss to Bournemouth.
The Black Cats' last match was a narrow 1-nil loss to Watford at home and their last away match was also a loss to Arsenal.
So both teams will be looking forward to pick a point or three in this match.
A loss for the home team could see them end the round in the relegation zone.
If the visitors lose then they will remain second from bottom but a win could see them leave the relegation zone.
