Venue: Stadium of Light
Date: Saturday, 25 August


The only time the sides have met in the top flight before was in the 2007-08 season. Both matches ended in a 2-1 victory to the home side.

They have only met 17 times before in all competitions. Sunderland have won six matches, Reading seven and there have been four draws.

Reading scored the highest percentage of headed goals in the Championship last season (30%) while Sunderland conceded the highest percentage in the top flight (28%).


The Black Cats won just two of their first 14 Premier League matches last season.

And they failed to win any of their last eight league matches of the campaign, meaning they are winless in nine matches after their draw with Arsenal last week.

The only teams to win in the league at the Stadium of Light since Martin O’Neill took charge are Arsenal and Manchester United.


Reading had the best defence of any Championship team last season, keeping 20 clean sheets.

Yet they scored the fewest goals of any team in the top five, notching just 69.

In their two previous seasons in the Premier League the Royals managed just seven away wins in total – five in their first season and two in the second.
