That win against Swansea last weekend was huge, but now it’s just as huge that we build on it with another victory over Sunderland on Saturday.
David Moyes’ side are 10 points from safety and all but relegated, though we know how capable Sunderland are of performing a great escape at the end of the season.
They’ve done it so many times and it’ll just be so typical of us to be the side they beat to spark yet another incredible run of wins to secure another season in the top flight.
It wasn’t the best of performances last week but it was good to see the boys get the job done. It did come at a cost, though, with Michail Antonio’s first half hamstring injury ruling him out for the season.
His injury means other players in the squad can now make their own case for a starting role against Sunderland.
The likes of Jonathan Calleri, Edimilson Fernandes and Sofiane Feghouli will all be hoping to be named in Bilic’s starting XI on Saturday afternoon and you could argue each of them desrve their chance.
However, with a number of changes expected from the XI that beat Swansea, this is the XI we think Bilic should pick to face the Black Cats…
