In this relegation battle both teams will be doing everything possible to collect all three points, as Premier League survival is reaching its fever point.
New Sunderland boss Paulo Di Canio has rejuvenated a stagnant Black Cats side and has got them playing stylish and attacking football that has seen them win three of their last four. A win here and it may be enough to see them playing in the top flight next season.
Villa meanwhile are still perilously close to the drop zone, sitting just two points above Wigan, who slipped up at home against Spurs at the weekend. Behind lone star Christian Benteke, the Villains will be looking to claim the vital points as they bid to avoid the drop to the Championship.
When the fixture list came out last July, this may not have been seen as a potential relegation six-pointer, however after both team’s disappointing seasons, this may be the most crucial game in the season.
