The corresponding fixture last season finished 2-2 after the home side came back from two goals down to earn the draw. Di Canio has added a number of players to his squad for this season, notably US international Jozy Altidore and Modibo Diakite – on a free from Lazio. But in Dimitar Berbatov, Hugo Rodallega and Bryan Ruiz, Fulham have an accomplished frontline that is likely to cause the Black Cats problems.

The bookies are sitting on the fence a little with the Sunderland win priced at betting odds of 2/1 (BetVictor) compared to 7/2 for a Fulham victory (with William Hill). But we fancy backing the draw at betting odds of 23/20 with BetVictor, with a repeat of last season’s 2-2 scoreline not out of the question.
