Sunderland and Queens Park Ranger [QPR] are facing each other during an unpredictable Premier League [EPL] season. While both teams are struggling in the beginning of the 2014/15 EPL season, Sunderland is expected to predominate in this match


The Black Cats proved the world that they were able to survive the previous EPL season in spite of the odds. They did it with a determination that is not usually seen in clubs threatened with relegation.

The beginning of this season is not the exception with their two matches against West Brom and Manchester United. These matches resulted in two draws for the Black Cats.

Sunderland stunned the Red Devils with an equalizer by Jack Rodwell against an impressive performance by Juan Mata. This was possible in spite of United maintaining 55.4% possession of the match.

The result left Louis Van Gaal [Man Utd.] struggling for answers in what was once a jewel of the EPL. In spite of the slow start, Sunderland appears to be an organized team with a forward looking attitude.

The Black Cats are currently in 11th place with two points, three goals for, and three against for a differential of zero.


Recently promoted QPR started its current EPL season with two losses against Hull City and the Tottenham Hotspur. In their two matches, QPR did not bother to score one goal.

QPR was disorganized in their first two matches with their lack of depth and possession. They are at the bottom of the current EPL table with zero points, and five goals against for a differential of minus five.

At the present rate, QPR may be relegated again but this is too soon to tell.
