There’s plenty of optimism going into this weekend of games in all corners of the Transfer Tavern, but looking out at the punters, it’s clear that Manchester City supporters are a little more confident about this one than the Black Cats fans.
It’s a big game for both sides as they make their Premier League debuts this season and with the game being held at the Etihad, you could argue that Pep Guardiola’s side have the advantage with the home crowd on their side too.
It looks set to be an interesting season for Guardiola’s new-look City side, who have added the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito and Leory Sane to his ranks this summer, with John Stones being signed for £47.5million.
