Crystal Palace host Sunderland in the Barclays Premier League hoping that a team that struggled against relegation last season will be ripe for the taking.
Managers Ian Holloway and Paolo Di Canio will be wary that their publicly perceived wacky behaviour and comments do not win football matches, and beneath all that there is a desire to show that tactically they are more astute than perhaps sometimes comes across.
The visiting Black Cats have spent a fair amount of money this summer, with the likes of Emmanuele Giaccherini coming in to reinforce the side, whilst both sides have brought in an Arsenal reject – Vito Mannone comes in for Sunderland, whilst Marouane Chamakh now starts up front for the Eagles.
If this was later in the season, it could be considered a relegation six pointer, but at this early stage a respectable performance and avoiding losing sight of rival teams is the order of the day.
