3-4-1-2 Predicted Sunderland Line-Up Vs Ipswich Town: Asoro and Maja To Start Up Front?

Sunderland’s luck finally ran out after a nine-year spell at England’s premier competition came to an end last season when Sunderland was finally relegated last year. The club probably survived more relegation wars in the last ten years than the number of goals they scored last season. However, it was doom spelt all along for the Black Cats last season and after finishing rock bottom, they moved down to the Championship.

Things have not gone well for the Black Cats well this season either. Sunderland have just won five of their 29 league matches this season and with only 25 points on the board, they stand in the relegation zone.  The club is 23rd in the Championship and looks set to drop further. After failing to guide an aimless Sunderland side to safety last season, Moyes resigned as the manager of the club in May this year. Simon Grayson who replaced the Scot got the sack after only eighteen games in charge.

It is a sad state of affairs for the club’s board and Martin Bain, the Chief executive of Sunderland and the former Rangers man who now have to motivate the new manager Chris Coleman and the team to not get relegated from the Championships.  They have already wrapped up a deal for Jake Clarke-Salter on loan from Chelsea.

Coleman had a tiring day yesterday and will now want to turn his attention to their next match against Ipswich Town. The Black Cats manager was left exhausted by the Deadline day and will have to use his brains, even more, to put out a good team against the mid-table opponents. The Welshman will like to hit the ground running and will be hoping that the new signings will help his side to get out of the conundrum that they are currently facing to an extent. 

However, it is not going to be an easy task for the Black Cats to get all the three points against Ipswich Town, as they will also be eyeing nothing less than a win in their next encounter and push Sunderland even closer to the dreaded possibility of getting relegated from the Championship.

Formation: 3-4-1-2


Robbin Ruiter is expected to play in goal. The three men back could be Jake Clarke-Salter, Lamine Kone, Tyias Browning.


The midfield quartet is expected to be Bryan Oviedo, Ethan Robson, Lee Cattermole, Adam Matthews.


The front two are expected to be Joel Asoro alongside Josh Maja with George Honeyman in behind.
