Preview: Crystal Palace vs. Sunderland

Sports Mole previews the match between Crystal Palace and Sunderland at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock is likely to be without goalkeeper Julian Speroni for the visit of Sunderland on Monday evening.

Speroni was caught in the face with a stray elbow from Craig Dawson in last week's 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion, which resulted in the Argentine being replaced by Wayne Hennessey.

The point at The Hawthorns made it nine points in seven league games for Warnock, who is back at Selhurst Park for a second spell in charge, and he will be confident of hitting double figures against a Sunderland team lacking in form and confidence.

The Black Cats have shipped 10 goals in their last two Premier League games, with a 8-0 thrashing by Southampton being followed by a 2-0 reverse against Arsenal.

That has resulted in under-pressure head coach Gus Poyet hinting that goalkeeper Vito Mannone could be dropped in favour of Costel Pantilimon, who is yet to make his league debut after signing from Manchester City in the summer.

Anthony Reveillere, who recently moved to the Stadium of Light on a free transfer, may earn a first start for his new team, while Connor Wickham could be included in attack.
